    Ok so i am playing through the world league and have a killer back line so far... but basically i wanna know who are the best all forwards to give me an awesome overall forward pack.

    I am looking at Richie McCaw and George Smith cause in my opinion they are the best in the world and it seems to have been adapted into the game- they are both awesome at rucking which is very accurate.

    But any other suggestions for any forward position would be cool and also an explanation as to what they can offer!

    coughas, how bout playing mccaw at 8th man and put Schalk Burger or Phil Waugh in at other flank... Trust me, you wont lose ANY balls at ruck time with these babies!

    Martin Johnson, Paul O'Connell, or if you're a SH'er try Matfield and Jack.

    I don't actually like O'Connell's ratings in the game... he seems a bit below par to me (added to the fact that he lacks a scrumcap)... is he originally one of the best in the game? (my created version is)

    he should be one of the best locks in the game. If he's not up to scratch I'm told Pelous is fairly good.

    I've taken the total from the most applicable (in green) stats for a Second Row forward to give an idea of who actually comes out top

    ... I think Grewcock (like alot of England players, Thompson for example) is given much to good a rating!

    the numbers in brackets are the stats I've used for my created O'Connell... not the best in the world, but def one of! [​IMG]

    EA kinda screwed up with his stats. Pity that, I'm probably gonna recreate him too.

    In game ratings:

    Smith = bargin

    Krige = Drastically under rated

    Fox = Nothing special

    Lord = OK
