The 2011 Rugby World Cup is in full swing! But since the tournament is in New Zealand and games are broadcast live in the middle of the night, many STACKletes are not getting their rugby fix. Fortunately, 505 Games and HB Studios—creators of Rugby '08—have released Rugby World Cup 2011 to give ruggers all over the globe a chance to guide their favorite team through one of the most popular sporting events on the planet.

Gamers have access to five game modes: Tournament, International Test, Warm-Up Tour, Place Kick Shootout and Online Play through Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. The 2011 edition also features official team licenses for some of the world's most notable rugby traditions: England, South Africa, France, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Italy. Did we mention that the game comes in full HD glory, with impressive details such as scrum caps and thigh, wrist and finger tape?

Rugby World Cup 2011 is on store shelves now for $49.99. Pick it up to get the full experience throughout the tournament—or buy the Universal Sports Rugby World Cup package and stay up late to watch the matches.
