Rugby's the sport that concerned parents try to remind themselves of when they send their sons off to football, thinking, "Well, at least he's not playing Rugby." Contact sports don't get much more physical than Rugby. Good thing, too--the dental industry makes enough money. So fierce, so merciless, so full of brute force, it's only fitting that Rugby makes its American gaming debut on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, the system with the true furious power to play this game!
Rugby 2002 puts all of the roughhouse action from the turf on the screen for intense football of a different kind. While pure aggression is the name of the game, genuine ruggers get their due with a game studded with the EA Sports trademarks. Official teams featuring some of today's rowdiest Rugby players from across the globe are put through championship matches in international stadiums like Murrayfield and Aukland. All the players are proportioned with accurate height, weight, and skill stats (such as tackling, kicking, stamina), and they're ready to play with full-up Rugby moves like grubber kicks, dummy passes, tackles, and pile-on rucks and mauls! Lace up for some dirty, unruly skirmishing and join the scrum!
