    Don't expect too much going by their previous efforts.

    The Wii is all about movement etc.

    The only way i can see this working  is if they incorporated the balance board somehow.

    PS have the boys around and crank out the boxing and ten pin bowling. Kicks ass.

    The previous efforts were buggy and a poor at best. The wii has potential for actual real passing motions and tackling I just am not sure they will implement it that well

    Geez I nearly destroyed my loungeroom playing tennis on the Wii, I reckon I might put my tv through the wall trying to tackle in league.
