Were These The Most Intense 2 Minutes In Rugby Video Game History?

Were These The Most Intense 2 Minutes In Rugby Video Game History?
By Mark Farrelly Updated

My time as Welsh head coach has been a short one. Indeed you might say it has been a particularly miserable one.

The year was 2017 but we were invoking the spirit of 1995 as we took on the might of Ireland, as part of Balls.ie and Carry Out's preview of this weekend's Six Nations game. With just minutes to go we were still trailing by five points but had them pinned back inside their own. A try looked inevitable, as the likes of Simon Geoghegan and Tony Kingston struggled to fend off our warriors.

But push as we might, we just could not get across the try line in normal time. As we reached the 80 minutes (5 minutes in Jonah Lomu time) all Ireland needed to do was put the ball dead. A simple task you may think but one that isn't exactly easy in a game like this. Watch the madness unfold.

Much to my dismay the lads kept opting to pass when straight through for a try. It seemed absolute lunacy! Were they trying to throw the game? Had they the yips? To be honest it would seem the explanation is a little less dramatic than that. Basically the R2 button makes a player pass right in Jonah Lomu Rugby but years of playing FIFA have subconsciously caused me to press R2 every time I wanted to sprint. An all-too-common problem in the great sport of Jonah Lomu Rugby.
