VIDEO: JOE takes on SportsJOE in the inaugural Fifa 16 Inter-Office Cup

Unbelievable JOE.

The rivalry between our brother site SportsJOE and ourselves reached boiling point over the last week. Naturally there was only one solution... a Fifa 16 tournament.

After several rounds, there was two gallant competitors left, SportsJOE's Conán Doherty and our own Joe Harrington. It was a tense affair but there could only be one victor.

With pace being no longer dominant in the new FIFA 16 - like it was last year - one-trick-pony Doherty was coming up short when he was tasked with actually playing football.

The game is now set up with more intelligent defending - individual backs are more agile and responsive to chasing after speedsters and the defence works as a unit, their positioning is realistic and their interceptions are constant so SportsJOE's hit-and-run tactics were soon found out.

Secretly, us JOE lads locked ourselves away with the FIFA Trainer before the tournament which, regardless of skill level, gives everyone a chance to compete at a higher level. The wily Harrington was whipping out new tricks unannounced like the no-touch dribble faint and the cheeky fake tackle move when the boys hit the field.
