    If you do this properly i will delete my xbox account..

    OK hard is broken on this game. You cannot get the ball. Off a line out scrum ruck nothing.

    So here come the edit menu.. Simply destroy new zeland stat wise. Dont just move thier positions as they will still beat you just not as badly..

    Make them slow and awful and then pick scotland..

    I won this game 110-44.. the 44 points because i got bored as its a long match.

    AidenkaelHard is not broken, it's just that you have to understand Rugby to play it. Don't always move the ball to the outsides, learn when to punt, when to drop kick, when to use a certain play, etc.

    varkylfusWon 115-39 combined with Tough it Out. Popped King of Crunch for fun. No need for a 2nd game.

    New Zealand rated 88. I am rated 61.

    Hard is easy. Understand Rugby and the game mechanics. It's about 50/50 for scrums and lineouts. They definitely like their lineouts.

    There is no need to change team stats for this one. It's not easy by any means but you can do it!

    First thing to do is try not to use your back line and get yourself turned over. Best thing to do is keep it tight with the forwards and use pick and go or pass off to a forward from the ruck rather than swinging it out to the backs.

    When ever you find yourself deep in your own 22, punt the ball out and to the opposite corner to where you are on the pitch. So if you're in your own 22 and to the left angle your kick to the right. Keep doing this and work your way up the field.

    One last thing... Always take the points! If you can, just keep going for drop goals if you can't cross the try line.

    If you not inside your 22, then try not to kick it straight out. When it comes to the line-outs just keep jumping front.

    Do these few things and you will win. Think my finally score was 22-21 using Japan as my side. It gets frustrating but it can be done!
