Wallabies captain selected for Rugby 08 cover; game to release in Australia on July 26.
With the Rugby World Cup set to kick off in France this September, EA Sports has announced the cover stars for its upcoming game tie-in, Rugby 08. In Australia, Wallabies captain Stirling Mortlock will grace the cover of the PlayStation 2 game, which is set for release down under on July 26.
EA Sports has chosen 11 different union players for the covers of Rugby 08 in different countries around the world. In the UK, Mark Cueto will be on the cover along with Mortlock, while France has Frenchman Yannick Nyanga. Brian O’Driscoll, Paul O’Connell and Ronan O’Gara will be showcased on the cover in Ireland; Bryan Habana, Schalk Burger and Francois Stevin in South Africa; brothers Mauro and Mirko Bergamasco in Italy; and Richie McCaw in the USA, Canada, Mexico, England and France.
looks like all blacks arnt so indestructable after their collapse to the wallabies why would an australian want to see an overated flanker on the cover whilst i can get the australia's best centre.
Richie McCaw should be on every cover! He is the captian of the best Rugby team in the world! Go the AB's!
I have always wanted toplay a rugby video game, to bad its not next gen because thats all i have Wii60
Well, it is nice that EA knows how to appeal to its customers in different countries. But isn't there some sort of curse attached to appearing on an EA cover?
Richie MaCaw should be on all the covers. Got to have the World Champs and soon to be World Cup Champs on the cover. Who wants has been Mortlock on the cover. Go the AB's and South Africa on Saturday
