Go back to Rugby Challenge 2006

The ‘winning a trophy’ celebration scenes in sports games aren’t particularly brilliant moments, but no matter how short or poorly-animated they are, they’re a hell of a lot better than getting nothing at all. (I’m sure you can see where this is going).

In Rugby Challenge 2006 you get one for winning the World Cup (which, as the game doesn’t have the World Cup license, is called the ‘World Championship’) but not for the Six Nations (which does have the official license, and is hence known as the ‘RBS [boo!] Six Nations’).

Frankly, that’s a bit odd. If they hadn’t bothered to do one at all that would have been quite lazy but would at least have made some kind of sense. And why would you not have one for the trophy you actually have the license for?

 

This is what you get if you win the World Cup (with Wales)…

 

…and this is what you have to make do with if you win the Six Nations (with any nation).
