SuperCoach NRL: Pick a gun team in just 5 minutes

If you want to join in on Australia's favourite rugby league fantasy game but don't have the time to spend hours doing research, then this is the guide for you!

 

We'll show you how to assemble a gun team in just a few minutes.

1. First step is to register which you can do here:

2. Once you've signed up it's time to pick your team, and you'll want to start with some cheapies! These are the most important players in any SuperCoach side as they start at bottom dollar and make money for your team. You'll need approx. 10 cheapies and it's better to stack the backline with these players rather than the forwards. This is because backs score more tries, which leads to sharper price increases. Some of the best players in this category are (use search panel in SuperCoach to find names):

5. PICK a starting 13 and four reserves. Only the scores of these 17 players count for each round (although it's important most of your eight non-players still take the field for their clubs so they go up in price, even though their scores don't count to your points total)

 

6. JOIN or Create a league and start sledging your mates.

 

7. USE your 37 trades (max two per round) to build your side into a SuperCoach powerhouse.

 

8. READ our in-depth SuperCoach analysis to help you make the right decisions.
