NRL players accused of ignoring game plan to boost SuperCoach numbers

Manly skipper Daly Cherry-Evans has reportedly admitted in the past he stopped playing SuperCoach because it was impacting his game.

But the problem remains within the NRL and some are even ignoring game plans to boost their SuperCoach points, according to former Australian players Matthew Johns and Greg Alexander.

Speaking on his SEN show – Morning Glory with Matty Johns – the former Newcastle playmaker revealed the practice is the reason players are now putting their hand up for “cheap metres”.

“I’ve heard a few guys at another club that the middle forwards argued the toss about taking the ball up at the kick-off,” Johns said.

“It used to be the worst job, now they all want it because of SuperCoach metres.”

Penrith legend Greg Alexander said he’d heard of players checking their SupercCoach numbers at halftime.

“I know there are players that do and there be might one or two around Manly who aren’t DCE that play the game for their SuperCoach numbers,” Alexander said.

“Offloads, metres made, there are players that do that [check their numbers at halftime].
