Keep Calm and #StayHome - the Self Isolation episodes

Keep Calm and #StayHome - the Self Isolation episodes

March 26, 2020

And just like that, the season is... on hold? We're still here and we're going to keep coming at you all with (semi) regular episodes even during this 'hiatus'. Giving the people what they want while they're self-isolating (hopefully!!!) or if you're a frontline worker, thank you for your continued hard work and sacrifice in this difficult time! 

We talk a few key points from Round 2, and then we talk the suspension of the NRL season, sharing some preliminary thoughts on how it might impact the NRL SuperCoach season once it restarts later in the year (fingers crossed we still get some footy and SuperCoach, even if the season is reduced)! Think injuries being healed, fitness concerns, the lack of byes and what we may end up having to do as the season prepares to restart later in the year.

Round 2 Pre-lockout episode

Round 2 Pre-lockout episode

March 19, 2020

As mentioned earlier, our first edition of the 'pre-lockout' episode but unfortunately due to audio dramas (and unrelated work-related dramas thanks to COVID-19!), we weren't able to get Wacko Jacko's late mail segment this week - it'll be sorted by next round though! 

The Champions answer your Twitter questions, featuring plenty on Williams (both of them), Flegler, Katoa, Yeo, Simonsson, Isaako and others.

Keep Calm and Carry On - it’s only Round 1

Keep Calm and Carry On - it’s only Round 1

March 18, 2020

The preseason was long but in a flash, Round 1 has already come and gone! It was a crazy round with a lot going on, but SuperCoaches, let's not overreact. Catfish and Bear are here to tell you all to calm your farm and discuss what your focus should really be in the first two weeks (spoiler: rage trading is NOT one of the things you should be doing), so that you can use your trades as effectively as possible to set up the year.

We talk about at all the most popular trade-outs and trade-ins, and we also get the weekly injury update from NRLPhysio himself.

Catfish and Bear reveal all…

Catfish and Bear reveal all…

March 11, 2020

... all about their 2020 Round 1 team (until we get another urge to tinker with the team again!)

Like last year, we go through each selection and explain/clarify our thought process behind it. There's a few interesting picks from both teams including some discussion on starting with at least one non-playing reserve (NPR) this year. We also discuss some potential strategies on maximising points at fullback.

No Half Measures To Winning NRL SuperCoach

No Half Measures To Winning NRL SuperCoach

March 6, 2020

Time is running out to finalise preparations for the start of the NRL SuperCoach season! SuperCoach Christmas (a.k.a. the first proper TLT of the year) is almost upon us and there are still SO many question marks this year! Catfish and Bear try make sense of the halves position though - reflecting firstly on how both of us used the halfback and five eighth position so differently yet to great effect in our respective Champion seasons, and then trying to apply some of those takeaways to 2020. 

We tackle the Cleary vs Moses conundrum, the impact of Latrell Mitchell on Luke Keary and Cody Walker, as well as diving into some of the other names in the Halfback and Five Eighth positions that you put to us when we did a Twitter callout a while back.

The easy, the hard, and where NRL SuperCoach 2020 will be won (and lost)

The easy, the hard, and where NRL SuperCoach 2020 will be won (and lost)

March 2, 2020

Catfish and Bear are back (although this was recorded prior to this weekend's round of trial games) and chat more about the strategy of 2020. We breakdown where we think the most critical position for SuperCoach will be this year, what're the easiest and hardest positions to handle this season and go through our thoughts on some of the key players in those various positions.

So if you want to hear about fullbacks, hookers, prop forwards and second row forwards, we talk about plenty of them this week!

The 2020 preseason continues and we're stoked to have the 2019 overall champion, Declan Creek (follow him on Twitter @DezHassler) join us. Yes that's right, us - Bear is back and he joins Catfish to chat with Dez this week.

We review Dez's winning season, including some key takeaways on strategies to consider for 2020, where the season was won (and almost lost) and we couldn't help ourselves, but we talk about a few players for the 2020 season as well.

The third 2020 preseason episode features another special guest, the premier Late Mail Man, Wacko Jacko himself of 'Wackos Whispers' fame. Make sure you follow him on Twitter - @wackoswhispers to stay on top of any final team list changes and other mail as it becomes available. 

Catfish and Wacko talk rookies, from preseason fancies to potential mid-season rookies, and we go through a few players from all 16 teams to either consider for your Round 1 team, or mid-season downgrade options, or even potential nuff options - there's a little something for everyone!

Heads-up on some potential audio issues; it may be a good idea to use headphones that cater for stereo (not just mono) sound.
