The people have spoken.
It’s been almost 10 years since EA last brought us a rugby game. Less than 24 hours ago we decided we had enough and felt it was time we tried to do something about it. The reaction we have received has been nothing short of incredible.
For years now we’ve been crying out for a decent rugby game, but to no avail. Plenty of companies have tried, but all have them have failed. EA’s Rugby 08 however, was simply glorious. Hours, upon hours of addictive gameplay whether you were playing one of the lads, or working your way up the World League with your club.
In order to try and get this show on the road we created an online petition and started pushing content out all day through our social channels like crazy.
At the time of writing the petition has been signed over 5,000 times. On social we have literally received 10’s of thousands of retweets, shares, likes, comments, you name it.
Help us make it happen! https://t.co/tfoTnQyCPW

Rugby 08, one of the greatest games ever. Don't even change it, just release it on PS4 and update squads https://t.co/IbEBZRVyUX
