Rugby giants South Africa and England will both be officially licensed in the forthcoming Rugby Challenge 4 from Sidhe and Tru Blu Entertainment, scheduled for release later this year.
Confirmed via a new TRAILER on the official Rugby Challenge 4 website, the new footage showcases an England player being tackled by two Springbok defenders, with the official kits also on show.
England and the Springboks will then be added to the officially licensed roster of teams, including the All Blacks and Wallabies. At this time, no other licensed team has been announced, but given that the other notable nations (France, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Japan and Italy) are all licensed in another upcoming rugby game, Rugby 20, it’s unknown whether they’ll feature in Rugby Challenge 4 in their licensed forms.

It made computer game history in the Amiga community when it received a review score of 2% in the UK magazine Amiga Power
This review of the PC version noted flaws including several spelling errors (“Murray Field”, the Parc de Paris, “trys”, “possesion”, and the clock not stopping when the gameplay is paused.
But those flaws add to the games character in our opinion.
