Tag Archive: Coach Jahred

We are just 12 days from the kick off to the 2011 NRL/NEX Dream Team competitions so there isn’t much time left to work out that all important campaign strategy. 

In Part 1 – I talked about the Raiders and the advantage they had for coaches in the 2011 season.  They are not the only team with an advantage when it comes to the early bye rounds.  Another team with a similar advantage is the Warriors

The Warriors have their 1st bye in round 12 with the Raiders.  Be wary though – if you stack your team with players from the Raiders and Warriors it may cost you a win in your round 12 head-to-head clash in your individual league or get you knocked out of the Eliminator Competition.   

If you are considering the Warriors, they have some good scoring options to choose from.  New players to the club, old players, players returning from injury and a couple of cheap options to make you money and trade up to those high priced stars.  The down side to the Warriors is they share their round 17 bye with the Cowboys, Sea Eagles, Storm, Tigers, and the TitansContinue reading


If you didn’t already know Coach Jahred and his Saints are the new NEX-Cup Minor Premiership holders for 2010.

The Saints have the 3rd highest overall point’s average for the season with 637.68 per game and with only 3 losses for the season they had a winning streak of 9 straight games since their round 5 defeat against the Sabian Sonors. 

The early round saw the Saints and the Sabian Sonors swapping places at the top of the NEX league ladder but the Saints kept marching on while the Sonors bowed out of the finals race in round 22.  And this is how they did it for the last 15 rounds of the home and away season.

The Rebels are back!

In an 11th hour bid, the Rebs Rebels have retained their rightful spot in the NEX Cup! Competing in the No Excuses last season, word on the street was that the Rebels never really found their feet from the get go, but this year Coach Scott is promising more from his troops and with a years worth of experience – who is gonna argue? Suspected grudge matches from Coach Shane and Coach Fazzie could arise for boasting rights within the work arena.

Well this is it Coaches, we are finally here – Are your smokies going to perform? – Will the DT stars live up to their hefty price tag? – Is your strategy the right strategy? – Will the Zaku Eagles reign supreme as they did last season? – Is the Eagles V Cougars match the biggest grudge match of the year?

All these questions will begin to get answered tonight where at the end of the round you will be either gloating, or restructuring your squad. The competition looks especially fierce with some big talkin newcomers (not mentioning any names Coach Mark), some real league heads, the quiet achievers who were on the fringe of something big last year (Coach Trav and Coach Jahred), and not forgetting all the participants in the Top 8 will be expecting to be there come Round 22 this year.

It’s a long season and all I can say is whoever is left standing holding the NEX Cup above their heads at the end, will be a Coach who truly deserves it ! May the best Coach win …….
