Team level gameplay features including defensive line controls, attacking strategy selection, team confidence, and AI support play.

Emulation Information

Controller Map Overlap

Rugby League 3 is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.


Only Quick Play Mode Available

Only the exhibition match can be played, other modes are inaccessible.

The disc contains Wii update WAD files which, when extracted and installed into Dolphin, unlock the remaining options so all game modes can be played. To extract the Wads load the game into the Dolphin game list, then bring up the Properties dialog from the menu. Then, on the Filesystem tab, the wads are located under Partition 0 → _sys. You can right-click each file to extract them. Each extracted WAD can then be installed.
