We’ve made it to the final round of 2020 NRL SuperCoach, and whilst it’s always tinged with a bit of sadness when the SuperCoach year comes to an end, I can honestly say for me I’ve been looking forward to 2021 SuperCoach for some time now.
It was always going to be a tough ask to nail my team selections and get the luck needed to compete for the title again in 2020.
Timmy Williams (founder SC Playbook) on the other hand has excelled throughout all the Covid drama and SuperCoach changes and sits in second just 61 points behind the leader.
With mass restings wreaking havoc upon squads, Timmy’s really well positioned with significant squad depth.
Whilst he wasn’t a bargain basement price cheapie, Big Tino did start the year at $217k.
Heading into Round-20 he’s averaged 57 and is priced at $564k. Jarome Luai deserves a mention also.
Some would argue at a starting price of $324k Lomax was a
mid-ranger, however nobody could have predicted he would be in the top 10 for
total SuperCoach points scored with just one round left this season.
Lomax has shown outstanding attacking prowess chasing through on kicks and the ability to get outside the defence to unleash his winger, oh and not to mention some outstanding goal-kicking to prop him up to a 67.3 average.
Just impossible to go past Teddy with 6 x 100+ games including the new NRL SuperCoach record of 199.
He was also amazingly consistent only scoring under 60 three times the whole year.
Hard to argue with Walson’s pick of James Tedesco as he has
obviously been the highest averaging player of the year with some enormous
tons, however I think on a consistency basis Cleary takes the cake.
He hasn’t had any massive 150+ scores to bolster his average
like teddy has, but rather has maintained his 84 average by scoring around that
75-100 range in 70% of games this year.
Truly outstanding from the young lad and I expected nothing less from him this year.
I’ve got to go with Nofo. Even though picking him at the start of the year was one of the few things I did get right, even I didn’t believe that he would average 76.8 points and finish 2nd highest point-scorer in SuperCoach overall!
A phenomenal effort from a CTW in a team that didn’t even finish in the Top 8.
At the start of the year I warned against buying Cam Smith
because I thought he would hand over a lot of the attacking reigns this season
to the likes of Munster, Papenhuyzen and Hughes, however I’ve been made to look
a fool by old CS9.
Averaging 79.1 which is far more than he averaged last season, a truly surprising year from the veteran who appeared to be losing his speed and tackling ability mid 2019 getting run over by the likes of Okunbor, but in 2020 he has shown no regression – superhuman stuff.
