Gameplanet has posted their preview of Rugby League 2.
"While we enjoyed the control system from last time, we have long wished for more flexibility in the passing game, and we are still finding the controls do not allow for passes to be executed as planned. For example, a straggler might get a pass intended for next in line in the backs' formation, leaving him too deep and too isolated to do anything constructive. We'd prefer to see such players automatically missing out on the pass, letting us use the skip pass function elsewhere instead. We'd also like to be able to dictate the trajectory of the pass, such as can be found in decent soccer games. For example, a quick tap of the button might be used for a hand-off to a nearby running, a hold for a lob pass, and a standard press for a standard pass."
