Pimp My Team v2.0

As we welcome in the new year with champagne, fireworks and the possibility of keyrings, it’s time for us to start tinkering with our 2019 SuperCoach sides.

Thankfully, the team at News Ltd have come to the party this year and opened up the Team Planner (for those with a SuperCoach Gold subscription) early so we have a great asset to start pulling together our respective squads. Just log into the official SuperCoach and as long as you have a subscription it will be available for you enjoy.

This post is designed for you to share your squad of the day / hour and seek feedback. To make things tick over nicely it’s a good idea to give a bit of advice yourself, no one likes a tight ass.

Enjoy!

PS: you can find v1.0 here

    Might be waiting on a few to many TLT miracles. Just be prepared to make some adjustments.

    I like this team. Just a question on A Hopa. Wonder when/if he will get minutes

    You have too many premium FRFs. At least one of the 4 won’t be worth holding for the whole season so it seems a bit of a waste spending all that money there.

    Any input would be a huge help – I have tried to get in mid price keepers/cows with the lack of out-and-out cows floating around.

    $700 left over:

    Hodgson (Roache)

    Fifita TPJ (Haas) (Carrigan)

    Crichton Jurbo Arrow (Murray*) (Kerr) (Nikora)

    Morgan (Brown*)

    Widdop (Moylan*)

    Ramien Bateman Momirovski Lomax (Allan) (Ravalawa) (Xerri)

    Teddy (Gutho*)

    – I’d be wary of picking Ramien to start the season, especially at his price, given the Knights naturally gravitate to the LHS on attack, and as Ponga adjusts to life in the frontline. We saw it during the trial in the weekend where he didn’t see any ball, at all, with the Knights lacking any sort of cohesiveness. I’d only pick him if you feel in your gut he’s going to start the season off with a bang, otherwise, there are plenty of cheaper options, which would allow you to upgrade other positions. – I think you’re carrying far… Read more »

    I wouldn’t have both Haas and Carrigan, as when Haas comes back Carrigan will be gone IMO. Try and find cash for Tatola? I’d look to downgrade Gutho myself, but could see arguments to downgrade Ramien. I’d shift Moylan to FLB and downgrade Gutho or Ramien to grab Keighran to free up cash to maybe be used elsewhere?

    I don’t like how cheap you’ve gone with FLB at all. You need one of Teddy, Turbo or Ponga IMO. Too much cash ITB, so I’d go Allan to CTW and get rid of Capewell and grab a gun FLB. It’s ok to sit on that cash left over for now, but it needs to be spent after TLT IMO. Having loads of cash ITB won’t work this year I don’t think.

    I don’t mind this strategy TBH (obviously it’s reliant upon having enough CTW/FB cheapies to fill those spots), for the simple reason that it cuts down on slow-burn cows. Definitely food for thought as I’m certainly not comfortable with the cows I’ve got at 2RF and FRF at the moment.

    Drinkwater – torn pec so need to make first change there
    Maumalo – like him as a POD so really hope he goes well this season
    Perham – better off investing in Keighran

    I know everyone seems to be keen on having an NPR but in your case I think you can easily reduce that number. I’d move Moylan to FB and pickup the warriors cheapie. If Allan gets a start i’d probably bring him into your CTW for Elliott or Kahu and use that extra money to upgrade Gillette to Surgess or a gun.

    Hey guys,

    Wanted to get thoughts on my team so far… a lot of the cheapies aren’t set yet; will wait until TLT.

    Cook (Egan)
    Fifita/Papalii (Haas/Kerr)
    Lolo/Jurbo/Crichton (I. Papalii/Sele/Carrigan)
    Cleary (Keighran)
    Ponga (D. Brown)
    Holland/CNK/Lomax/Garrick (Herbert/Nikora/Xerri)
    Teddy (Moylan)

    Egan, Kerr, Carrigan and Herbert all unlikely. Haas suspended for four games.
    Team is too gun heavy. Great starting 13 but the only reserves I’d be comfortable playing are IPapalii and Moylan. Someone like Lolo or J Papalii has to be downgraded.

    Moranther

    But if I have a gun starting 13 + Papalii and Moylan then I only need 2 more players (probably cheapie CTWs or a cheapie forward) to round out the 17. Surely TLT will provide me with some more cheapies to bolster the squad too?

    hey guys, trying to tinker with my team and am close to losing it! any suggestions appreciated w/ 11k ITB:

    Smith (Holland*)
    Fifi, Taupau (Napa, Kerr)
    Jurbo, Crichton, Arrow (IPap*, Murray*, Nikora)
    Cleary (Keighran)
    Morgan (Brown)
    CNK, Mom, Lomax, Garrick (Allan, Xerri, Rava)
    Teddy (Moylan*)

    ideas to free up cash to upgrade CTW is probably the most key aspect i need, but any other observations please feel free to leave a comment smile

    Have you thought of running BSmith as a backup HOK? Could move Holland down to CTW and if you play both you don’t miss out on any points. Obviously risky without knowing minutes. Otherwise I’d personally downgrade Crichton to get funds if you really want to, but I don’t mind your CTW. Just think you need Kanu though as dumb as it sounds.

    yeah i agree, i wanted Kahu over Mom but didnt know where to downgrade to get the funds for that.

    also tried a BSmith at backup hooker option before, but would mean he is in my 17 and with his minutes unknown, not sure how i feel about that. i did like the set up a lot better though.

    either way, thank you! definitely something to consider
