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

    Cook, Holland* Fifi, Kapow, Napa, Host Jurbo, Arrow, Surgess, Murray*, Ipap*, Burr Morgan, Keighran Moses, Brown Kahu, CNK, Lomax, Nikora, Allen, Xerri, Garrick Teddy, RTS* 11k ITB I’m now done with all left field thought patterns, back to shades of vanilla. I’ve gone with the standard minimum in Ctw, with probably a couple of npr’s. I’d say RTS is worth the extra 40k over Moylan. He seems to be more involved without SJ and has a decent early run. Cook seems to be the only safeish option at HOK. If Martin starts in res, surely you have to find cash… Read more »

    Time For Plan B

    Honestly I think everyone is currently in the wilderness. I’ll be surprised if anyone is genuinely confident in their team to produce 25 money makers from round 1. In saying that I really like the way your squad looks. Vanilla as you said, but nothing wrong with sitting on that until TLT.

    Personally can’t stomach going Moses though.

    Thanks for the input!

    I’m also a little unsure about Moses.

    Looking at his stats from last year, he had those two 130 scores but also 8 scores 25 or under.

    Surely he can’t score that low, that many times again . If he can avg within 10 points of Cleary with a saving of 200k, I’ll be happy (big if!)

    I just feel like it’s crunch time for Moses. Either he steps up this year or bye bye big $ contracts.

    Wish me luck, might need it lol

    After last weeks trials i decided to make a team essentially completely different to what i had. Significantly less stacked in the forwards.. A lot more poddy i guess. would love to hear some thoughts…

    Smith (B.Smith)
    Fifi, Lodge (Napa, Carrigan)
    Tapau, Arrow, Murray (Ipap*, Nikora*, Host*)
    Cleary (Keighran)
    Moylan (Brown)
    Mitchell, Holland, Lomax, CNK (Salmon, Garrick, Allan)
    Teddy (RTS*)

    So after trials wrapped up new side. Trying to lock in my spine only a few spots not set on, what do you think? Cook – Egan Tapow/Fifi – Lane(r)/Tatola Arrow/Murray/Surgess – Ipap(r)/Host/Nikora Cleary – Brown Morgan – Keighran Holland/Hampton/CNK/Lomax – Allen/Xerri/Garrick Widdop – Moylan(r) 111K ITB SOld on my spine and feel Surgess/Ipap/Lane all offer value, not sold on any back up hok atm and don’t feel Katoa has totally knocked Egan out of contention. Widdop is my POD pick to have a great season. Moylan after the trial is ?? But heavily involved, Tatola and host – feel… Read more »

    Yeah just feel Fifi/Tapow will av 5-10pts ahead of all other straight out forwards. Sam and Lane could av 70 but require attacking stats each week

    I think there is too much uncertainty with Egan in the hooking role, with Katoa there.
    I would move Holland up to hooker instead & then bring Bird in that way as an alternative.
    Apart from that, your team looks good.

    Cleary, Keighran
    Walker, Brown

    Your still keen on the Mahoney pick! What if Eels run a utility?
    Fifi and tapow are locks top two scorers in frf again 5-10 pts ahead of all others imo.

    Very similar to mine bar the inclusion of cook vs crichton.

    I like it just hok concerns me

    If Eels run a utility it won’t take a whole heap to change my side and get Macca in really

    Hi all latest iteration below, feedback would be great as I am struggling this year. The below actually leaves me with 0 in the bank

    Macca // Mahoney*
    Fifta, Wallace // Napa, Carrigan
    Jake, Arrow, Murray // Papalii*, Sironen*, Nikora
    Morgan // Keighran
    Ponga // Brown
    Masters, Kahu, CNK, Lomax // Garrick, Xerri, Allan
    Tedesco // RTS*

    I actually love it. 0 in the bank but no urgent foreseeable upgrades needed by TLT.

    One week to go till Tilt so thought id throw my team up here and gauge some opinions, spent a lot of weeks going over everything and looking for the ultimate balance in the squad of consistent points and increasing team value. didn’t name the cheapies as they are the usual suspects this time of the year. (yes i’m a Parra fan)

    McCullough
    Fifita – Ofahengaue
    Trbojevic – Arrow – Papalii
    Hughes
    Moses
    Marsters – Gutherson – Kahu – Lomax
    Tedesco

    Reserves. Mahoney, Paulo, Lane, Gillett.
    ITB – $2,000

    If those are the only criticisms, I must be doing something right haha. Haas was really just a placeholder. I now realise that I have enough cash to be able to bring someone like Burr in to my 2nd row, switching kerr to Haas’ spot. Cheers for the feedback!

    Robson was a standout during the trials and with the news McInnes maybe traded, Robson was looking look. Looks like the rumour was BS but if true the he is in my team. Even with Hass you save a trade down the line as some of the FR cheapies will be very slow burn. Vanilla but very good team.

    Can this team keep pace early – too much coconut chocolate and not enough vanilla Smith Egan Don’t want to over invest here as no guns or rookies are screaming pick me Kapow Sammy Moose* host Lolo Arrow Murray IPap* Matto* Garner.* Bit worried by two tigers after that trial Garner would be the one I let go if….

    I may be wrong but I feel Bird/Hampton and CNK all better value then Capwell in CTW, yes edge back rower but he sisnt a work horse. and may well av 45-50. Now the othere mentioned may av 40-50 they have far greater opp to score big as well, I think someone like Bateman/CHN/Mau mid year or after 5-6 showing solid 55-60 consistent scores in ctw are well worth it then., But atm, I think when Graham returns capwell drops out? Nikora on SJ side in both trials, where Lewis lined up on the right, he has been earmarked to… Read more »
