We Know SuperCoach!
North Queenslander born and bred, Justin is also very much a Cowboys tragic. Rumours have it that his first born son will be named Thurston.
Trading Walsh to Drinky ot Teddy?
Or whoever is playing the Dogs. We bring out the ($upercoach) best in people
Got Brimson and DFifita 😉
Only problem with the Titans is Kini keeps stealing fullback minutes off Brimson.
I am considering Pongy to Pappy.
Shame it is too early to know what is going on with the Penrith game. DH2O could go off if the panthers players drop out.
I’m thinking of bringing in koula, if panthers drop there players then that’ll change to drinky
Should know as panthers play 530 sat and manly play 6pm Friday
My later info is saying the Panthers are going for it. Will still wait to confirm they do it.
Like Koula but seems a shame to spend $450K of my $1.2 Million.
I did consider him, but without the Guns in the Storms Team this Rd…. it put me off to be honest
Yes that is the negative but at the same time Pappy playing an almost 2nd grade team.
I’m worried about the fullback on the bench waiting to steal Pappys minutes.
Who for Cappy?
TD- Cleary (any chance of a late out/rest?)
I’m going Hynes
B&BE saying both playing.
I likely go Cleary but both could / should be good options

To BE fair to all loyal super coacher’s and under the circumstances of the way most NRL seasons end i propose these adjustments. Supercoach has amended the way points are awarded in bye rounds and surely most people would agree that the way bye rounds are adjudicated that this is fair under the circmitances(being mass outs due to byes and soo).Your top 13 only counts! BUT the last round is by far and away vital to overall points and standings and peanalise’s the teams at the top who have crafted their team from the start(no sour grapes from me ,… Read more »
It been like that for years… not ideal FB, indeed, but every Champ in previous years had to face that same dilemma… for the Top10 SC’s if they planned for this very RD it could be a huge difference… trust me I never make that haha 😉
Agreed, every one has to go through it but why is the first game rules different? They changed the bye rounds because of so many outs and the last round has been no different for year’s with outs. I’m talking supercoach and how they structure it.
I agree but I find it more frustrating every week the Updates take forever… That really piff’s me off…. Dream Team in Sports Deck… You know what You get within an hour of every game finished… Now if SC could do that that would be a nice move 😉
For sure, i agree, i’ve got some opinions 1-They say it’s subjective(so the judge say’s that’s my opinion)and how long his opinion takes is subjective(in other words, its a matter of opinion). 2-It’s really true and it happened but i have to check just to make sure with the the people that tell me if i’m right.(that’s subjective if i’m told it is)And three 3-That’s when i get a beer relax and hold on and hope they seen the reality . The official NRL site has very decent(different scoring and structure) fantasy game and they also have a game called… Read more »
There has never been one as bad as this year. But I agree there have been a lot of outs in some past years.
I think it would be good enough to allow rested players to be a free trade out in the last round. The bye rounds as it is being done is fine in my opinion as it is a fair planning strategy. These last round resting are not defendable or planable. There is no possible planning strategy that deals with 10 players disappearing from anyone’s team.
I’m really new to the game!!! Can you explain the reason why the supercoach rules have changed in regards to the bye rounds? In detail if you can. Thanks mate.
The simple answer is that previously the same scoring applied. That is, you could have up to 17 scorers. So, one team might have 10 players and the next one 16 – so a 6 player difference. In the new rules, only the top 13 players count. So in the above example, 10 players on the first team and the 13 top scorers on the second one – a 3 player difference (with a twist in that the second team is ‘rewarded’ with the TOP 13). The rules even things out and arguably reduce the skill/frustration (depends on which way… Read more »
What I put was a different solution to the last round issue.
This is the first year of the 13 player bye round team, it was done because of the bye’s etc I believe. (I like it) You know how the rules have varied over the years, I agree with what you have said above. Just put up a different solution to the last round.
I’ve done that DNA, Your talking about how they changed the rules to supercoach because of the byes. Right it’s fair! It happens every year. Just like teams rest players every year.How much fairer is it to everyone to have the first and last games of the year unlimited trades?The players at the the top are at a distinct disadvantage because they have the most guns(i’m not one of them )But fair dinkum. That’s the game ! Build your team with the best just because the nrl coaches are resting players dosen’t mean the supercoach players would rest them.
How about allowed to use any trades left? Keep the same number to start but if you have managed to save 5 you can use all. Would only increase the skill level and create more diversity in teams
It is also a problem for the NRL:
There should be discounts offered at the gates to substandard games where the first grade game being marketed is deliberately not delivered and the question if making selections to deliberately not contest games brings the game in disrepute. Given that there is gambling on these games a situation where clubs at the top level are choosing to effectively not compete in matches is questionable.
I really like your guys thinking… hope some will come true
Thxs DNA and FB…. we Love the Game… That’s what makes us Passionate Fans
This last round is a twist of fate. I have been really busy with work this year so have neglected my team and the results show – it will be the first time in over a decade I have missed the top 10,000 (normally top 5,000). On current lists I will have 16 players so a real shot at squeezing into the top 30,000. Just hoping that the teams around me are stuck with less haha
I got 14…. and that will be huge to keep me in the 30k’s 😀
E Katoa and Warbrick both out.
That’s the carnage which just keeps on giving in Rd27 :-\
Whispers that Greg Marzhew may sit out also…. hope not.
I think we all expected that some players may be rested in this final round. But nobody expected near whole sides which makes the Minor premiership near pointless not to mention sc. The NRL should have stepped in to force teams to play their best squads, its a farce.
It is definitely a farce but forcing them to play is unrealistic. I think a week off before nrl finals so less resting… and possible R27 being treated in SC as a bye week with your best 13 could be the go….
Manu out, I have 1 ctw
Yep another one gone. Now just need the broncs to win so a few more panthers to sit out! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Shocker…
Reports are that the Panthers are going for it, more related to their poor performance last week.
Hope it isn’t Marzhew Like I have, not that the difference between none and 1 is much different.
Mulitalo my CTW with Howarth making a guest appearance.
Never thought i’d be glad to see Howarth named!
The Magic Number this week is 9315.
To calculate a breakeven, use the following formula:
Breakeven = ( ( Players current salary / magic number ) x 3 ) – (last two scores)
e.g. Cleary = ( ( 811200 / 8315 ) x 3 ) – (109 + 93) = 59
My phone notifications is pinging constantly from NRLSC individually advising me all the players not selected.
Woohoo 16 times !!!
Anyone else rolling the dice on Pappy tonight?
No trades myself but worth a punt IMO.
I doubt he plays a full game . I think this is another conditioner for finals. Who knows ?
Looking at the top teams coming into this week: #1 will be nervous as hell with a 76 point lead but only 11 in their roster named to play, while #2 has 13 in play. #3 is only a further 6 points behind but with only 9 playing, so safe to say they’re at long odds. #4 has 11 and #5 has 13. #6, though, can sneak in an upset with 15 in play and only 148 points behind #1. Probably a couple more in the top 10 could jag a miracle. Will most likely come down to how many… Read more »
Have two trades left. $17k Who would you take flyers on?
tapine moale haas baby tino
fifita tino olak tohu williame nuff
issako marzhew mulitalo howarth dwz cobbo munro
One on DCE
Like the DCE call…
Walsh to Teddy, shame Ponga isn’t in Your FB’s
can downgrade ponga to say walker and upgrade walsh?
Yes it is an option for you but I do like the DCE pick too… which makes it difficult
I’ve gone sj and Walsh to dce and Teddy
Used final trade last round for Garrick to CNK and now have a full bench of guns on the bye, injured, rested, etc with H Grant, C Horsburgh, P Haas, T Harris, J Bateman, R Matterson, S Johnson, C Munster, CNK, N Meaney, J Manu, K Ponga and C Gutherson all unavailable.
Only 8 players available= R Mahoney, D Fifita, B Nikora, N Hynes, C Walker, J Isaako, A Johnston and G Marzhew, so looks unlikely that I will hold onto my top 1000 spot (currently ranked 611).
Luckily Sportsdeck NFL is open to play around with.
You won’t be the only one with less than 10… I think You be holding the Top 1K Ranking… BoL Mate
Late Mail: Broncos vs Storms
Jack Howarth Starting in the 13…
Who would have thought haha
The man, the nuff, the legend, what a godsend!
I had him down for 10ish now 30 is possible and just imagine he scores a try… ok ok back to Earth… enough dreaming haha
Captain???? Or at least VC
There’s another edge forward on the bench
I think he was just trying to be cheeky or frustrated non-owner 😉
$10K short from bringing Tino + Pappy in so will have to settle with Tino + Drinky
Just hope he doesn’t go large as I think it could make or break this round
