There are two things that give me hope : 1) its being made by an Australian publisher who, based on their history, have done nothing but rugby games (plus the aussies like their rugby!).
2) Its being made by a kiwi developer, and if a NZ based dev cant make a good rugby game then no-one can!
It doesnt have to be a GOTY contender, i just hope its playable, fun and accurate to the game.
The same developer/ publisher made Rugby League 3 on the Wii. I know it's not a Union game, but just have a look at the physics etc.
It can probably just about be classed as enjoyable, but only because there are no other options out there. Compared to Madden it is embarrassingly bad. To be honest, if I want to play a rugby game I just play Madden but only use the running backs!
