This mainly applies to the Be A Pro mode :
I can't stress this enough. The CPU can be really really stupid. It can be frustrating when you play as an outside back and you essentially have to watch your opponent build up about 20 phases, then when you get the ball someone will either knock it on or your halfback will make a mindless run and get isolated turning the ball over. I have played so many 20 minute games that have ended 0-0 or under 10 points. The game is too one sided and slow. Most of my games the opponent CPU has 80% possession but when they have possession they aren't going anywhere, just building phases. Can there be a way to make the game more balanced, fast and fun?
Clearing the ball can be a nightmare when your players just don't know what to do with themselves. My suggestion for this is when you press the button to call for a kick downfield/into touch, it would be good if your team sets up to kick when safe - not just kick as soon as you press the button. So after pressing the button, perhaps your halfback sets up for a box kick or your fly half moves deeper so they have space to clear.
Just some thoughts I had while playing the game today. Thanks!
