1 - too many off loads - go to edit teams, turn the sliders down no offloads to none or minimal - there are six categories, 2 in each defense, midfield and attack. Solves the problem no all difficulties straight away. Takes 30 minutes to do every team in the game.

2 - Forwards in the back line - dont use quick bind at rucks or mauls - this uses the closest players which are generally backs meaning your forwards move to the back line to cover them. use heavy bind and the forwards hit the rucks and then 3 forwards stand ready torecieve next to the half bak to hit the ball up again.

3 - Passing is crap - its all about timing, yuo cant button mash passes like ni the old rugby games. You have to run at angles and direct your passes. If you sprint and pass yuo will run ahead of you players and the pass will go backwards or no where near a player. If you dont sprint, yuor players run to position to recieve the pass.
it also depends on your players passing and catching stats. the higher the stats the more comlpeted passes you will make.
The final deterent is the amount of pressure the defence has no you. The higher the pressure the less likely your passes and offloads will connect.

Also holding the pass button and x or circle (or the xbox equivalent) will highlight a player to pass to guarnateeing it will connect. rb and lb passes to your fly half or fullback depending on their position at the time

4 - no set plays - True but watch your backs, as yuo run with the ball the run angles for yuo. they run inside balls, double ruonds, scissors and dummy cut out pass moves, you have to watch who is running where as they always run set play formations, you just dont have to select which one and can choose any option. Watch the computer play its self and yuo see it happening all the time. cooper and genia always rnu set lpays in the game.

Any other problems just ask!

5 - No mauls from the line outs - If yuo take the ball down from the lineout, quickly turn to face the defence and push square (or xbox equivalent) make sure you are not touching the left stick. this goes to contest a tackle, because they have so many defenders yuo wont break the tackle and it will form a maul.
This takes practice and at first yuo may even end up kicknig a drop goal attempt! but once you get use to how to do it it works every time.

6 - No number 8 pick and go from the scrum - true - however - pick and go with your half back and straight away pass back towards the scrum, yuor number 8 will recieve and be able to drive frmo there. this always creates a gap in the defence between the scrum and half back passing the ball.
Not quite a pick and go but as close as you can get

7 - to screw the scrum, just press up on one stick, it turns and pushes at the same time making heaps of room to pick and go

2,3 and 4 aren't 'issues'. Anyone who watched England in the World Cup would have seen the sheer number of forwards cropping up in the backs, their inability to pass and no actual set plays... ;)
Don't look at me, I'm too pretty :p

(Some of the above may have been fixed in the new patch)

7 - Best slider options – (thanks to Chris Gould)

Offloads all the way down
Pass accuracy around half- 3 quarters
Offload accuracy half
Offensive and defensive urgency fully up
Tackle break quarter way up
Tackle 3 quarters

8 – fixing offloads online – can’t be done – however send a message to the person your about to play saying “no offloads” 99% of people agree to it as everyone hates this and allows for a quality online game!

10 – Dropping the fly half into the pocket – hold both pass buttons and directly passes to him or the fullback in the pocket – also hold pass and 3 passing options will come above 3 players heads – (either x, square or circle – or xbox equivalent) the fly half will be one of them

11 – Patch 2.0 – Offloads, tackling, offence, defence etc – all have sliders that you can now adjust for every team in the game at once – easily the best addition in the new patch!

12 – What is project Nova and iiroam – fan made downloads that update real player names and add a barbarians squad and lions squad – the link is www.projectnova.freeforums.org all instructions on downloading and uploading are there

13 – Why are the player names and kits wrong – licensing issues that were given to that inferior RWC game!

14 – manually editing teams – Wikipedia is gold – also the real national kits are in the custom teams edit kits option, player names are easily changed – bryan Habana is bryan Havana etc

15 – can you adjust power for conversions/penalties – no – you are set at max strength each time

16 – How do I put a created player in a team? – choose the team – click on swap player – your player will be under no competition – sometimes it is easier to replace a reserve rather than a player in the starting line-up because it will only search for players for that exact position. When you replace a reserve every player in the game comes up as an option

Not a problem mate, more than happy to help – it’s a quality game – takes a bit of time to get use to but once you have the hang of it it’s unreal! And the eagles are licensed!

21 – driving and setting up rucks one after the other
When at a ruck or maul – hold the pass button, this will bring 3 forwards out of your backline and close to the ruck, they set up next to each other to receive the short pass and drive together and to set up another ruck. You can repeat this for a good 30-40 meters. Good way to maintain possession as using quick bind here only adds forwards rather than backs as well
