Hello everybody. Congratulations to the developers for what I think is the best rugby video game so far.
There is however an inconceivable lack for what is intended to be a simulation of actual rugby. It's impossible to score a goal by a maul or a scrum. It's also impossible to collapse a maul/scrum. These are fundamental moments in a rugby match and RC4 cannot be considered a complete game without them.
Scrum: Most collapses and fouls in a scrum are due to the "front row collapsing" foul. Equally, the supremacy of a scrum is generally due to the front row. Why not introduce the option of pushing with the loosehead or tighthead prop so that the direct opponent collapses? Taking care not to exceed and therefore not to collapse the scrum? Or instead pushing to make it collapse?...
It would be enough to press carefully maybe L1 (loosehead p.) or R1 (tighthead p.) during the scrum mini game.
Maul: The defense may use the same buttons to collapse an advancing maul, and the attack to score once the maul has crossed the goal line.
All this would allow us to finally watch penalty tries and somehow replicate the battle of the front rows. With the addition - for the developers - of just two more animations or a little more.
