THERE'S FIVE PLAYERS UP FOR DEBATE

There are five SuperCoach players who have been the subject of much debate in the Fox Sports offices. So, we asked our SuperCoach nerds to give us a list of pros and cons and we'll let you be the judge.

1. Matt Gillet

2. Martin Taupau

3. Jake Trbojevic  

4. Sam Burgess

5. Cameron Smith

UNDERSTAND THE NEW SCORING SYSTEM

Yep, that's right. The Last Touch Assist scoring metric is now dead, and instead it has been replaced with a new stat called the Try Contribution stat. Make sure you're familiar with it, because this new rule has the capacity to bump plenty of players' averages right up from their 2018 output.

WE RATE EACH NRL TEAM IN SUPERCOACH

We've looked deep into the SuperCoach crystal ball for 2019 and taken a look at how each team might fare in SuperCoach land in 2019. We've rated the No. 1 SuperCoach gun at each club, along with their best point of difference player, best cheapie option, value picks as well as players to steer clear of.
