Rugby Challenge 2006 is a comprehensive and intuitive Rugby simulation featuring realistic graphics and animation, plus a wide choice of real teams and stadiums along with all new 2006 rugby-related content.

The game provides contemporary content (names, teams, tournament, and rules) and the fluid and quick play phases of a real rugby game. Five official stadiums have been reproduced and more than 450 teams and 2,000 players in total. The game also features prestigious official licenses, including national teams, the Six Nations tournament, and the official leagues (Top 14 in France, Premiership in England, and the Celtic league in Scotland, Ireland and Wales).

An editor mode allows you to customise players, teams and tournaments, thus creating your own leagues and cups. Furthermore, a complete training and tutorial modes help the uninitiated learn and understand the rules, and the easy, normal, and difficult settings mean that the game can appeal to all levels of player.

The career mode in Rugby Challenge 2006 includes a high level of detail, involving player transfers, player recruitment, hiring coaches, weekly training sessions, financial management, injury management, and more. Live commentaries are provided by official commentators such as John Inverdale from the BBC, Dewi Morris from Sky Sports, and France's Jean Abeilhou.
