NRL Supercoach Round 7 – Bye Prep 101

Four rounds and twelve trades separate our current team from our first big bye round side. We need to remember that we can’t compete for a respectable overall rank if we ignore the three big bye rounds. As we all know, our rank can change by thousands if we push rounds 12, 15 and 18 to […]

NRL Supercoach Round 6 – Key Decisions Need To Be Made

Overall players listen up; it’s time to let bye coverage availability influence your trades. Head to head players can almost ignore the big bye rounds but those of us going for Overall glory need to do a numbers check. We also need to keep round 12 in the back of our minds when doing our […]

NRL Supercoach Round 4 – Hookers! How do you like yours?

The 2017 hooker scenario is pretty simple. If you don’t own Cameron Smith then you’re running with a POD. He’s easily the best hooker available and you’ll want him in your run home side.

NRL Supercoach Round 2 – Lesson Learned.

Round two was another low scoring week with 950 to 1000 points being a fairly good effort. Tedesco, Tuivasa-Sheck and Cartwright were the main disappointments but luckily most competitive coaches had one or more of them in their team.  I scored a respectable 1033 which is a nice relief after my round one performance. I […]

What a brutal way to start to the 2017 SuperCoach season! Some of us may have escaped the carnage but a lot of coaches will be forced to reassess their approach. Round one had it all!

Penrith Panthers first up.. We’ll need to tread carefully when looking at getting Panthers players into our starting side this season.
