SuperCoach NRL 2022: Steve Menzies reveals team

After a few years out of the game I am back playing KFC SuperCoach in 2022 and after picking the brains of some of the best in the business have put together my team.

Covid could have a big impact on the game in 2022 so I want to have a solid mix of cheapies, guns, depth and of course some of my beloved Manly Sea Eagles.

Without further ado, here’s how my team will be lining up to start the year.

HOK

Lachlan Croker $406,600

Chris Randall $245,500

With Jayden Brailey injured, Chris Randall is the best cheapie hooker and has great job security. I think Lachlan Croker is in for a big year at Manly after making the No. 9 jersey his own in 2021 and will play plenty of minutes.

Jai Arrow $457,700

Stefano Utoikamanu $457,200

Toby Rudolf $447,100

Jamayne Taunua-Brown $274,700

I’ve decided to go with some good value picks at the front row position to add some consistency to my team, with a bunch of guys who can reliably each get me 50+ points a week. Jai Arrow is set for a big year at Souths, while big Stefano looked really good for the Tigers towards the end of last year. Toby Rudolf is a really good footballer as well, and Jamayne Taunua-Brown is a good cheapie in the front row.

Connor Watson $515,500

Ethan Bullemor $280,000

Kelma Tuilagi $253,900

Bunty Afoa $321,300

Izack Tago $287,900

Ben Trbojevic $188,700

After going pretty big at front-row I’ve decided to pick up a lot of cheapies in my backrow to get some money before upgrading to guns later in the season. I’m a big fan of Connor Watson and he looks in for a big year at the Roosters. Ethan Bullemor will start in the backrow for Manly and looked really good in the trials and while Ben Trbojevic will miss out in Round 1 I think we’ll see plenty of him in 2022.

Lachlan Ilias $205,200

Blake Taafe $210, 400

I couldn’t decide on which Souths cheapie to lock in so for now have gone with both of them. Blake Taafe looked good filling in at fullback in 2021, and Ilias is one of the most hyped young halves in quite a while.

5/8

Kurt Mann $383,300

Talatau Amone $284,500

Both of these guys have very hand dual positions and are cheap. Kurt Mann will start in the backrow for the Knights so should be pretty consistent in my halves, and Amone looked good for the Dragons in their trial matches.

Reuben Garrick $767,500

Jason Saab $414,600

Kyle Feldt $459,900

Nick Cotric $376,400

Enari Tuala $381,000

Cody Ramsey $268,900

Tolutau Koula $175,400

While I’ve gone cheap at other positions I’ve gone big in my outside backs, with three exciting Manly stars. Reuben Garrick was the NRL’s top point scorer in 2021 and I expect him and Jason Saab to be great again this year playing alongside Tom Trbojevic. Nick Cotric will be much improved this year after moving back to the Raiders, and Cody Ramsey scored some sensational tries for the Dragons in their trial matches and could get over a lot this season.

FLB

Tom Trbojevic $1,256,100

Clint Gutherson $655,300

Tommy Turbo is the best player in KFC SuperCoach and the first player picked in my team while Clint Gutherson is super important to the Eels attack and looks set for a big year.
