It’s not too late to sign up for SuperCoach

THE Broncos and Dragons will kick off the new NRL season on Thursday night, and for many fans it signals another chance to get bragging rights over their mates.

There are more cash on offer in 2018 than ever before in SuperCoach NRL with almost $500,000 in prizes, including a potential $340,000 Perfect 8 jackpot and $50,000 overall prize (full prize structure below).

Australia's largest NRL fantasy game has launched for its 10th season, and here's why you should sign up today:

The following stats have been added: Intercept taken (+5 points), hold attacking player up in goal (+3 points), kick goes dead (-3 points). Full details here.

• MORE INFO, LESS CLICKS: We've rebuilt SuperCoach from the ground up. The game is now a single screen experience - sections now load faster, with data and stats right at your fingertips without having to navigate to a new page.

• MORE CASH TO SPLASH: The SuperCoach salary cap has increased by $2.4m to $9.4m, in line with the actual NRL cap.

• MORE SUPERCOACH NEWS: We now have 50 pieces of content per week, including expert analysis from our resident guru Tom Sangster, past winners, Roosters great Anthony Minichiello and many more. Playing SuperCoach is FREE, but you have the option to supercharge your SuperCoach experience by purchasing a subscription, which gives access to all SuperCoach articles, podcasts, videos, blogs and live shows.
