1.                              INTRO
Jonah Lomu Rugby is in my opinion the greatest rugby game ever made. I 
know there isn't really much to chose from when it comes to rugby games,
but that dosen't mean Jonah Lomu Rugby isn't good.
I've searched the Internet, and could not find any FAQs or help files 
about the game, so thats where this FAQ comes in. Its not complete, but 
please email me at kenju@email.com with any enquiries.

6.                        HINTS/TIPS TO PLAYING
Lineouts:  Before the ball is thrown, press square to mark the jumper. 
           The best jumpers in the team are usually the 4th player and the
           second to last player in the lineout. Once the ball is thrown,
           press [X] and your player should be lifted very high.
Easy Rucks:When you want to win a ruck, take a player (preferbaly a larger
           player such as a forward) and sprint him into it. Just as he 
           enters start tapping [S], causing the player to go in and out
           of the ruck. This should be able to push the ruck over and let 
           get/keep the ball.
