Three new stats added in exciting change to NRL SuperCoach scoring SuperCoaches were last month given the chance to have their say on scoring changes for 2018— and the results are in. The following three stats will be added to SuperCoach scoring for 2018: *Intercept Taken (+5 points):Only given if a player takes the ball cleanly and his team ends up with possession. A player will not be awarded an intercept if it results in a six-again for the other team. *Hold attacking player up in goal (+3 points):Awarded to a defensive player who holds the attacking player up in goal. Any player who has done enough to warrant a tackle stat would also be given a held up stat. *Kick that goes dead (-3 points):Any kick that goes dead/touch in goal without being touched by another player. The erroneous kick must lead to a 20m tap and seven-tackle set for the opposing side.

Also points for holding up a player in goal? Would of rathered points for a try saving tackle instead tbh.
