Through playing any mode in Rugby 18 you earn Squad Points which you can spend in My Squad to create your own team.

Aside from playing quick match, there’s either League mode – in which you can play a season of the Premiership, Top 14, Pro12, or Pro D2 – or there’s Career mode, a sort of single-player FIFA Ultimate Team in which you buy players for your squad, earn points, and go up divisions improving your team until you reach the top.
What’s more, it’s also very difficult to pick up the ball once it’s on the floor, as your players seem to want to run everywhere but up to it due to the somewhat clunky movement controls.
Like offensive play, defensive play is simple yet also frustrating.
