The game has so much potential. Some small adjustments to the gameplay would make such a difference.
Backline needs to run straight to utilise overlaps. Too often overlaps are created by inside backs (centres etc) running outside of the winger and being the last man. Instead of going through hands, forced miss passes make the players run unrealistic lines and causes frustration.
Forwards cant tip (pass) the ball onto other forwards. In RC3 a simple pass(R1/L1) would tip the ball onto the next forward who would usually be cutting some kind of line. In RC4 as soon as you hit the pass button with a forward it hits an outside back.
Getting the 9 to pick then hit the last man in the pod works really well. You usually find some space/a weak shoulder and make a line break but nearly everytime you get turned over doing this. Its a good game mechanic where the player is making a positive play over the gain line - dont punish it with a turnover - please fix.
