"best so far but can improve"
4 stars"

the graffics is better than last year but it can get way better and also there should be smaller competitions like the air new zealand cup and they also have horrible ratings (luke Mc Alister FH. goal kicking 14!! thats lower than a foward)

Overall iĀ give it a 8/10
