Season 6 – Week 1 – It has Begun!

Hello and welcome back to my Broom Cupboard. Well its that time again when fully grown men (or women) with homicidal tendencies, IQ’s of a dead rat and far too much beer in them take to green fields and beat the living hell out of each other. This is just the bloody fans. Love it or hate it season 6 has finally kicked off and it has fallen on me to bring you a weekly summary of all that is going on…

Much to the commissioner’s dismay 2 matches didn’t happen during kick off week. The Temper Bay Marauders vs Blackburners and Creeping Death vs Grimwood Voodoo. The 1 week when it is hoped that all teams follow the fixture list before it gets all buggered up. Oh well…

With only 1 match being played in NORTH DIVISION it fell on the shoulders of the Brimstone Flayers and the Talos Tobacconists to get the division started. The Flayers on paper should of been more then capable to deal with a rookie Chaos team but unfortunately the Flayers were held to 1-1 draw. On the plus side they did manage to kill a chaos warrior. I hope the loss of a valuable player doesn’t effect the Tobacconists to much.

So on to SOUTH DIVISION where both matches took place. With 2 elf teams it was almost a given that both teams would perform well and win. For Wee Tree Fellows this was the case as they literally rang rings round the Underworld team. The score at the final whistle was 5-2 to WTF. One thing to the coaches to remember for following matches is that you are allowed to hurt opponents. So come on guys practise those blocks an cause some bloodshed. By the way you were also the only match to have no recorded casualty’s caused. The other match was between rookie team The Gelfs and the veteran team The Tribe (never thought i’d say that about halflings…). This was an interesting match with The Gelfs getting the result they would of been praying for. The only downside was that the “flings” weren’t going to let them have it all there own way. Those pesky little blighters managed to get elf an kill it. Poor elf was probably looking the other way. Final score 4-3. Hmmm…

On to EAST DIVISION where again we only had match played between Universal Horrors and Deamons Stump Deamonicans. Both these teams are new to this league so its going to be interesting to see how they get on in the coming matches. But back to this weeks match. This was an absolute slog for both teams with no ground given without a fight. It ended 1-1 with both teams causing a casualty each.

Finally my attention turns to WEST DIVISION. Again we have 2 veteran teams an 2 rookie teams hoping to make a name for themselves in the league. First off was The Tutsbone Jackles vs The Elfeim Razorhawkes.Hoping to carry on their winning form from last season the Jackles had a tough challenge before them against the Razorhawkes and it was. The Razorhawkes manged to get 3 touchdowns past the Jackles made all the easier by the fact they had MorgnThorg playing on their side knocking  the Jackles about. The Jackles got their own back by killing one of the elfs. Final score 3-0 to the Razorhawkes. Our final match was between the Valhallen Vixens and The Drakwald Defilers. After a season out of blood bowl the Vixens have returned to west division to reclaim their title. both teams played to the best of their abilities with the Defilers out performing the Vixens.  So unfortunately for the ladies it didn’t go the way they would of hoped losing 2-1 to the Defilers. Maybe the dream of west divsion champs again are dwindling for the lovely ladies.

Well that’s all the action from week 1, i’ll bring you all the action from the matches that didn’t take place as soon they happen.

Right i’m off to visit the Vixens to see if they need a man about the place an someone to console them. Could be in here…

  1. Thanks for clearing out the hair gel, the showers are working great now.

    We tried banning it from the players, but they threatened to go on strike

    The cheque is in the post.
