Post Free Game of the Week - Betfair World Cup

This game is so good that if it was on a Swedish server it would be illegal.

Perfectly in time for the Rugby World Cup quarter finals that form the beginning of this game, here is a fun, varied and simple try-and-conversion game based on the frankly ridiculous premise that Wales could potentilally lead the All Blacks 30-24 with 20 seconds remaining. Scrum and maul, run like the wind, pass the ball randomly, try to make that difficult pressure-on conversion. Good clean web-game fun that just gets more and more difficult and addictive...

I can’t win as the All Blacks . I seem to have most success with Wales.

OK. Just how annoying is it in the semis when you charge off one way, try to switch the play, and find that your scrum half is still standing at the (static) scrum?

It's way annoying. I've dropped the ball into the scrum at times too...

Seem to have missed the fact that the final whistle doesnt blow until the ball is out of play in rugby...

Am I the only person who finds the conversions really hard?

Of course if you score a try right in the middle the conversion is really easy.

But you have to keep it low for more points, and it’s hard to judge height.

Yeah, I filtered that out at first. It is possible to run it in the quarter-final, though.
