Daly Cherry-Evans recently revealed how he had to quit playing SuperCoach because he became too obsessed with how he scored in the popular fantasy game.
And it turns out he might not be the only NRL player who partakes in the weekly struggle of finding a cheapie to fill a void.

“It used to be the worst job, now they all want it because of SuperCoach metres”
Fellow Fox League pundit and Panthers legend Greg Alexander said he had heard Cherry-Evans wasn’t the only Manly player to play the game.
“I am [shocked] by that,” Alexander said.
“I know there are players that do and there might be one or two around Manly who aren’t DCE that play the game for their SuperCoach numbers – offloads, metres made, there are players that do that [check their numbers at halftime].
“It [taking the kick-off carry] is 20 metres.
“I’ve heard there is players that will ignore what the team during the set what they’re trying to do and where they’re trying to go if they can see cheap metres on the other side of the field.
“Or, depending on what period the game is in and how desperate they are to get to their kick you’ve still got some players that offload in traffic just to get their numbers up.”
