The League Continues : Renurgitated Vs Bruklands Watch Brawlers

Well Ladies and Gentlemen … and miscellaneous, we were joined today by two young teams eager for some bone crunching touchdowns in the second game of the Brooklands league. The action was fraught with the ball often moving between the two teams (and crowd) and whilst each gave as good as they got, the Bruklands Watch Brawlers finally managed to secure a touchdown in the second half.

The Watch successfully pushed through into the opposing half more than once but each time the Nurglites were ready and swiftly denied them. One such attack was amazingly turned around beginning with the warriors, Bells and Clothesline, causing two KOs and a quick snatch by Renurgitated’s number one pest, Spike, to sprint for the touchline but too eager, he left himself unsupported and a quick blitz brought swift retaliation to re-secure the ball. A lot of action but the first half was closed with nothing scored.

From the start of the second half, Renurgitated received and seemed destined to score as they caged the ball and pushed down the left side, almost two close to the side lines. As a result both teams losing a player a piece to a spot of crowd surfing. Within sprinting distance, the pest Spike once again trying to prove himself dashed for the touchdown but he tried going for it one too many times and glory was snatched away with the ball landing in the crowd. Rumours whispered of suspicious figures with trip wire nearby having some involvement but these were quickly quashed. Eager to be involved the crowd threw the ball between themselves a while until the ball ended up in Nurgle’s half. Renurgitated’s over commitment in the opposing half was capitalised on by a quick pass to ‘Visit the Infidel/Ungodly with Explanatory Phamplets’, (what a mouthful!), who singularly ran for his life towards the Nurgle touchline.

Nurgle in true style forgot they were in the middle of a game and started to smash into the humans with abandon. Visit the infidel, etc, etc, continued to sprint until a quick shoulder check confirmed that no-one was actually following and decided to take a quick rest on the touchline. Finally one pest realising that the ball deserved some attention made chase, however opportunity along the way proved a distraction too much and he jumped head first into a nearby blitz instead. Visit and ball continued to hover near the touchline until both felt overly neglected and collectively meandered over the line to conclude the game 1-0.

Here’s what the head coaches had to say:

Bruklands: “It was a tough game and all allegations of a pestigor’s shoe laces being tied and/or the use of pixies with a trip wire being employed will be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated … by us … the watch … case closed.”

Renurgitated: “What?! We didn’t win? I’m sure we won, I mean we sent the most players off the pitch, not as many stayed off as we’d have preferred but in anyone’s eyes how can that be seen as a loss. Ball……? Aw nuts …. get that mic out of my face.”

First Match of The League : Renurgitated Vs Turnlee Titans

‘‘Good evening sports fans and welcome to the Blood Bowl for tonight’s contest. You join a capacity crowd, packed with members of every race from across the known world, all howling like banshees in anticipation of tonight’s game. Oh, and yes, there are some actual banshees… Well, kick-off is in about twenty minutes time, so we’ve just got time to recap on the rules of the game before battle starts. Your match commentators for tonight are Jim Johnson and myself, Bob Bifford. Evening, Jim!’’

‘‘Thank you, Bob! Well, good evening, and boy, are you folks in for a great night of top-class sporting entertainment! But first of all, for those of you at home who are unfamiliar with the rules, here’s how the game is played.’’

‘‘As you know, Blood Bowl is an epic conflict between two teams of heavily-armoured and quite insane warriors. Players pass, throw or run with the ball, attempting to get it to the other end of the pitch, the End Zone. Of course, the other team must try and stop them, and recover the ball for their side. If a team gets the ball over the line into the opponent’s End Zone it’s called a touchdown; the team that scores the most touchdowns by the end of the match wins the game, and are declared Blood Bowl Champions!”
“Lets go match side with our roving reporter Jon Moleson and Chris Kalamari for the commentary”

The teams are Turnlee Titans, a bunch of Rats and Renurgitated, a bunch of… well I’m not sure what they are. They look humanoid except for that one with the mouth in its belly.

We’re off….
Lets face it fans were only interested in Touchdowns or injuries.
We don’t have to wait long for it – Renurgitated draw first blood on the first round and KO one of the Titans Linemen.
The titans retaliate beautifully with a fumble throw, followed by some incredible skill KO as their thrower tries to dodge out of a tackle zone.

Round 4 rolls round, and one of the Renurgitated’s warriors KO’s himself from a block on a Gutter Runner.  He looks a lot like a red hulk.

Round 5 and one of the Titans has done the impossible, I believe he has Killed that pestigor. Its incredible, a rat killing a nurgle pesitgor, its incredible, impossible, unbelievable Chris….
Never mind – hes regenerated and is fine.
Its push push push from Nurgle and the skaven… until

Round 8 – there’s a gutter runner with the ball – hes running, I believe he has done it Chris.
He made the touch down. Score 1 to Titans.
Half time, my favourite bit – bring on the Cheerleaders…. although with Nurgle and Skaven I’m not sure I want to watch.

Second half round 1,
Nurgle off to a good start they fumble the catch.

Round 3 Renurgitated manage to KO another Lineman and formed a cage, Titans Lineman manage to fall over and gets stunned.

Round 4 One of the Skaven Gutter runners takes time out of the game to visit with fans coutesy of Renurgitated.It’s good when the players press the flesh – of course the fans are mostly kicking the players heads in.

Round 5 and 6 the cage moves down the pitch slowly grinding its way towards the Titans endzone.

Round 7 some more flesh pressing from the titans, Gutter runners and Lineman alike – helped into the crowd by Renurgitated. One of the nurgle warriors also Ko’s another thrower. Have the titans got any players left on the pitch?

Renurgitated’s pestigor has the ball and goes for it towards the endzone, then makes it into the endzone but fumbles the GFI and drops the ball in the endzone.

The Titans Blocker grabs the ball hamfisted and hurls it at his teammate. Well we think that’s where it was supposed to go.

Nurgles last push  results a fumbled throw into the end zone, they like getting the crowd involved – they have even given them the ball now.

I’d call this game Chris. Looks like its all over.

Turnlee Titans 1 – Renurgitated 0

How about that then Jim and Bob any words?

“That’s great guys but you do know that’s not the first game…. you’ve just described the friendly they had.”

“That’s right Jim, I thought the first score was 1-1 a score draw. ”

If your still with us – thanks for staying.

Thats all from John Moleman And Chris Kalamari

Reluctant Coach Oakez clearly has more money than sense, but is working hard to equal the difference…

In an official press statement The Boggart Hole Slayerz said they’d do whatever was necessary to ensure that there were enough Blitzers at their disposal.
