Hello and welcome to Rugby 15! This is a pretty fun game, but doesn't offer much challenge in the way of achievements, unless you really want it to. The gameplay is smooth and fairly easy, making it an easy rugby game for even beginners and gamers who aren't familiar with the sport. It plays much like most of the recent FIFA games, to give you an idea of what you are looking for in terms of play style.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Your first step will be to knock out all of the tournament achievements. You don't actually have to play any of the games in order to get the achievements. Just select the appropriate tournament, make all the teams USER controlled and just spam  to simulate games until the tournament is over. 

Next you will want to edit two teams: New Zealand (rated 90) and whatever team you want to play as. It really doesn't matter, but if you want to save time, pick a higher ranked team so you don't have to edit as much. See the achievements "Winning Streak" and "Serious Rugger" below for a more detailed explanation, but here is the abbreviated version; Drop the stats for NZ so they are terrible and raise your team so they are super athletes. Play 10 games on hard, knocking out the random achievements as you go. All of the single game achievements can be done on Hard using edited teams. It's very very easy. Boom, you will be done 1000 in no time.

You should be done all of your achievements after just 10 games. 

If you follow this guide, you will have 1000 in under five hours and about 10 games, depending on your kicking ability. The only achievements that should give you any trouble at all are the Drop Goal and Place Kick achievements, due to very sensitive kick controls.

There are 20 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Score a try

    Just carry the ball into the end zone, just like American Football. However, you have to put the ball on the ground. Do this by tapping down on .

  • Run and score a try directly after breaking out of a tackle, vs CPU (Hard)

    Simply mow someone over or evade someone when they try to tackle you and score afterwards. See "Winning Streak" for tips how to do this on Hard mode.

  • Score four tries in a match, vs CPU (Hard)

    Self explanatory. Get the ball down in the end zone four times during a match on Hard mode.

  • Score a penalty goal or conversion from 55+ metres, vs CPU (Hard)

    After you score a try, do your kick from 55 meters out. In the top right of the screen as you are placing the ball, there is a distance meter to help with your placement. You will want to use your edited team with super stats and adjusting the wind helps a ton too. In the game options, put on moderate wind and just quit/restart the game until you get a decent tail wind behind you. I used moderate because I put it on the highest wind settings and had to restart seven times because the wind was always blowing right to left. I couldn't get the wind straight on, but on Moderate I was. 

    It doesn't matter if you start out with the wind against you, because you can do the kicks in the second half. Just make sure the wind is going straight and not to the right or left. Putting the ball down right between the goal posts during your try will help a ton and of course, as well as keeping the control stick straight during your kick! It took me a few tries. The kicking mechanics are very sensitive.

  • Score on 5 place kick attempts in a row during a match, vs CPU (Hard)

    After scoring, just make sure your kicks for the extra points go between the uprights. Put the ball down during your try dead center, to allow for easier kicks.

  • Punt into touch for a territorial gain of 50+ metres

    Use the moderate wind settings to your advantage here, as well as your edited super team. "Punting to touch" means kicking the ball out of bounds, So you'll need a lengthy boot to get this one. Just kick up and to the right or left while you run. The ball will need to travel 55+ meters and then go out of bounds. It can roll, so you don't need to worry about a direct kick. You do this by holding the  button down while you run with the ball and kicking a max kick on a diagonal/up direction.

  • Successful lineout throw by human-controlled players on same team


    Use two controllers and successfully win a lineout. This happens when you have to throw the ball in from the side. Have one controller throw the ball into the line. Have the other controller jump at the right time to control the ball after the throw. Very easy and you should get this on your first or second attempt.

  • Score a drop goal from 40+ metres

    Another kick achievement. The easiest way I managed this was to start with the ball in your own end zone. Run side to side in order to break past the line and beat all the players so you have a free run to the end. Beforehand, figure out the line system (solid line at 20 meters and dashed line at 40 meters). Then just use the  button to kick the ball through the uprights. For you Americans, think of a field goal while you're running! It will probably take a few tries, so just be patient.

  • Score a try after running the ball directly from behind your own goal line

    The first time you get the ball, just run back into your endzone. As the other team comes to get you, just head up the field breaking tackles and/or avoiding players using the side to side method. Score a try and unlock the achievement.

  • Do not concede any penalty infringements in a match

    You might get this naturally, but there is a very easy way to get this. What you can do here is use the edited teams and simply avoid the ball going out of bounds and don't get tackled. Since you've edited your team to be amazing and their team terrible, they won't even be able to grab you to take you down. Simply stay on the field and keep the ball. You won't even have an opportunity to get a penalty this way. With five minute quarters, this will be a fairly quick one.

  • Win 5 ruck turnovers in a match, vs CPU (Hard)

    Using your edited teams of course, steal the ball from them during a ruck five times. This happens when the computer has the ball, they are tackled to the ground and a ruck ensues. You need to push on the direction with the controller and "Steal" the ball with  when prompted.

  • Win a match against an international team rated 90+, vs CPU (Hard)

    New Zealand is rated 90. Edit their player stats all down to 0. This doesn't change the team rating! Make them all completely useless and their team still stays 90 rank. If you are really in a hurry, you can only edit the "necessary" ratings like speed, acceleration, tackling and strength to make them terrible enough. If you leave their kicking stats for example at their normal level, it shouldn't affect any of your games, but that's up to you.

  • Score 10 tries in a match, vs CPU (Hard), 10 min halves

    Just keep running the ball in for scores. Using the edited teams, this will not be difficult. You don't need to worry about making the kicks afterwards in order for this to pop.

  • Win 10 matches in a row, vs CPU (Hard) as the lead profile

    Using your edited teams, play 10 games in a row and win. Make them five minutes in length and knock out the individual game achievements as you go. I edited New Zealand (ranked 90) and made their players all slow weaklings. They couldn't run or tackle. I made my team super awesome and they couldn't take me down or stop me. They got a couple points of penalty kicks in my own half, but your team is so good there should be no way you lose a game.

  • Win the AVIVA Premiership title

    Please see the "Customary" achievement below.

  • Win the TOP 14 title

    Please see the "Customary" achievement below.

  • Win the Pro D2 title

    Please see the "Customary" achievement below.

  • Win the PRO12 title

    Please see the "Customary" achievement below.

  • Create and win a competition in Custom Cup featuring 20 teams or more

    Select the required tournament from the main screen. Make all the teams in the tournament User controlled. From the tournament schedule screen, just keep simulating the games. By hitting  repeatedly, you will simulate all the games. Since every team is a user controlled team, once the tournament is over, you will get the achievement for winning the tournament. You don't even have to play a game.


Secret achievements

  • Get awarded two yellow and/or red cards in a match

    You need to keep getting penalties for this. What you want to do is give them the ball. Tackle them to the ground and then hit  while you're still on the ground. You'll see a ruck meter that starts out red, then goes to yellow and eventually green when you're able to steal the ball. Trying to steal the ball while the meter is red or yellow will result in a penalty. Sometimes it's illegal hands on the ball, most of the time it's a personal foul for being so manly. Do this repeatedly and eventually it will pop.
