Conclusion: All good sports titles have some sort of franchise mode, and Rugby League 3 is no different. The game offers a multi-year franchise mode, complete with player signings and injuries. The ability to sign players from other competitions is a plus, so if you're playing as a team in the NRL, you can scour the Super League ranks and sign up some players and vice versa. A downside to this mode is the exclusion of the Toyota Cup.
Pros: General play kicking, Franchise Mode, Up to 8 players can be on the field at the same time, Official teams, players and stadiums, GameCube controller support
Cons: The Wii remote control, No Toyota Cup presence in the Franchise mode, The commentary and music
