are the referee paid off in the game like in real life. or can i finally win back the state of origin trophy. also do melbourne players get penalised for holding down in the tackle or is that disabled like in real life.

Awesome. While I didn't even bother with RLL 1, this one sounds a lot better. There is a lot more detail and some of the game play footage looks really promising. Will definitely go and pre-order now!

Not expecting this to be great, given the history of Rugby League games, but I've got it pre-ordered and will spend many hours playing anyway.

 

South Sydney might not make it to the grand final this year, but with this game, I can make Russell Crowe proud.
