Congratulations to the round 12 KFC SuperCoach NRL weekly winner Ben and his ‘Benalong Shorts’ who took the big $1,000 cash prize thanks to some canny use of the vice-captain loophole.

When Cody Walker bagged a double in the opening match of the round Ben made the most of the late withdrawal of Cowboys rookie Daejarn Asi and looped Walker’s triple-figure score.

Experienced coaches would note that Ben would have been better off using a conventional captaining Jason Taumalolo or Nathan Cleary as he then avoided copping Tabuai-Fidow’s measly 15 points. But a bird in the hand beats two in the bush and no doubt Ben felt pretty good having locked in Walker’s solid score early.

Congrats to weekly winner Benalong Short, who is $1000 richer and gets a free feed from KFC-Australia. VC loophole with Cody Walker was a masterstroke!
