Wicked. I just stuck a post up on your Facebook page, plenty of views, no way of knowing how many will show yet. This first 3 weeks will be a good start but hoping more will join in as they get their teams sorted out. Few people have said their getting the boxed set for Christmas so will be joining in after.
Once Winter Bowl League is settled we can look into running a full length Death Zone League.
If your reading this and interested then don't hold back. Get yourself down and join in the mayhem chance to win some nice prizes supplied by Firestorm.

So week one of the Winter Bowl League happened, thanks to everyone who supported it and to anyone who couldn't make it this week hope to see you next.

We had 6 playing in Newport with a couple more interested in starting up and two who were unable to attend.

In Cardiff we had 14 playing plus more promising to join in after Christmas so looking very strong there at the moment.

For anyone in the area or able to travel then feel free to drop in any time or contact me or the store for more info.

So two very interesting games for me in the first week.

Game One - Nurgle vs Wood Elves.

2 - 0 win to Nurgle. Very interesting game, with us going up in touchdowns. Some massive failures with casualties though. Only managed to injure a single line elf, where as the elves injured a rotter (but who care about them) and a double skull by a Warrior led to him getting injured, but he made his regeneration roll. I did manage to break a lot of armour, but the highlight of the game was seeing half of the elf team knocked out.

Game Two - Nurgle vs Skaven

1 - 1 draw. The skaven had a gutter-runner missing the game. But they still managed a cheeky touchdown 1st half. The rest of the game saw Nurgle lay down some massive punishment. Landed the following players into the injury box: Gutter-runner - missing next game, Blitzer - missing next game, Linerat - niggling injury and miss next game, Linerat - badly hurt. Pulling off a nice touch down in the 2nd half, Nurgle tied the score. Highlight of the game was the remaining gutter-runner making a dodge roll for the last few SPP's fall over and break his neck resulting in death :lol:
Good game in all, but funny that the only pass made in the game was done by nurgle.

The massive loss of players for the Skaven has forced the coach to retire the team. Bonus win for Nurgle.
