NRL Supercoach will look a little different in 2020, with coaches set to get an inflated salary cap, although it’s all relative, as players are a little pricer in next season’s edition.

We only had one player priced over $700,000 in 2019, but all five of James Tedesco, Payne Haas, Jason Taumalolo, Tom Trbojevic and Damien Cook will see you pay in excess of that magic number.

Tedesco is the highest-priced player at $781,500, more than $50k more than Haas ($728,200).

According to The Daily Telegraph, there are a lot of positional changes in 2020 as well, centre/wing now a tough spot to select.

John Bateman, Elliott Whitehead, Corey Harawira-Naera, Briton Nikora, Charnze Nicoll Klokstad, Clint Gutherson, Caleb Aekins and Gerard Beale have all lost their dual-position status (DPP), and are now either full-time backrowers or fullbacks.
