This game is awful

Summary: I cannot state how disappointed with this game I was. Anyone claiming this game plays at all like rugby has never properly watched let alone played the game. Rucks and mauls are non-extistant, instead replaced by a static mess decided by button bashing, gone are rolling mauls and exciting forward...
Summary: I'm a rugby player of 10 years. Loved Jonah Lomu rugby to death. Saw this in the bargin bin so thought I'd pick it up to see how the programmers had developed this game......They havent. The game play is so poor, it's slow, frustrating and has actually gone backwards from Jonah Lomu rugby.
Summary: WCR verges on being a good game, but the controls are childishly simple and haven't progressed at all since Jonah Lomu, while there's no depth whatsoever to the gameplay. For instance, the only way you can give away a penalty is by tackling off the ball - you can't even get done for offside!
