SuperCoach NRL: Gordie reveals his 2019 team

EVEN when it comes to SuperCoach, I cannot shed my loyalty to Queensland.

The majority of my squad for 2019 is made up of players from the Broncos, Cowboys and Titans or Queenslanders playing in other states.

Only a few others have snuck in.

I have two Englishman in Josh Hodgson and Sam Burgess and really, who could blame me?

They're absolute guns.

Outside of them, Zac Lomax has also snuck into my 17 - certainly a New South Welshman playing in NSW but from what I hear, you'd be a fool to leave him out of any SuperCoach team.

Among my must-haves this year are Titans playmaker AJ Brimson and Broncos forward Tevita Pangai Jr, who I am predicting will both have big years after breakout seasons in 2018.

But one of the players I am most excited about is Cameron Munster.

Cameron Munster is a key player for the Storm.

I cannot wait to see what he can produce this year without Billy Slater - the Storm team is his to own.
