playing in WL or any cup on elite level I've found alot of ways to manipulate the defense of the ai and find gaping holes. Its not hard, just a matter of observing the defensive patterns which rarely changes, eg. on your own 22m line you can gain yards down the blind and even score off a grubber kick. Once you see their winger go back for kick defense, head down the blind, grubber, regather,TRY (a bit of practice though). That and the fact that I'm buying good key players in key positions(WL), eg. scrum half (bullet passes ensure great service to the fly half), secondrowers (winning lineouts), fullbacks (Counter attacks), wingers (try scoring.....duh) and a good kicker (any position, prefferebly fly half). Once you get them you can exploit defensive gaps and win cups. I've only lost one game in 3rd division and now I'm almost finished 2nd division winning 30+ every game. Like rugby 05 im trying to build my team of super stars in 06 but what then, win games by 50+ undefeated, get the cup and do it over and over again (like R05)? Don't get me wrong I love this game to bits, but the only thing that will make this game survive is multiplayer! EA really need to work on there single playing ability.
