A last-turn throw of the goblin for Screwie's Stikky Fingerz left the score at 2-1 to The Horny Goats. They had 840K of inducements, but the chef only stole one reroll per half, and star troll Ripper was only replacing the (presumably injured or dead) 2nd troll from the goblin lineup, so it wasn't the 3 troll nightmare I was expecting.
Thanks to Screwie for the game.

Yeah it was a great game. A lot closer (and less injurious) than I feared it would be. During the first half especially, I felt I was within a whisker of stealing the lead (even though most of the action took place in my half of the pitch). Although my looney badly hurt himself with his own chainsaw the very first time he used it, I still managed to knock down CH's minotaur who then spent most of the half on his back.
The Goats snatched the ball away from me after a fumbled pass and made a break down my right flank. I dodged my Stunty best and pulled a cluster of goblins back around the lone ball carrier (a warrior with Dodge) - 2 goblins with Diving Tackle, 2 with Side Step! It was moot in the end as I used those numbers to get a 2D block which knocked the runner down.
Beastmen closed in sharply, but there was a gap up the right flank, where Ripper was standing near the LoS!
...Could I? One of my defenders snatched the ball and ran to Ripper. Who helpfully heaved him upfield... where he landed face first in the dirt. Dammit.
A Goats goat picked up the wild ball and CH commenced another guarded run, this time down the left flank. The KOs where finally starting to add up, now, and most of my goblins were still on the opposite flank. My bomber showed his worth, stalling the ball carrier with a perfect long range pass that he failed to catch.
I swarmed the beastman with every goblin I could, which wasn't many but I only looked to hold out for another turn and reach half time with a clean scoreboard. Sadly I could only present a minor threat, and the beastman easily escaped the two goblins around him to advance one more space into the Fingerz' end zone.
The second half wasn't quite as memorable, although it's the first time in recent memory where I've had a Secret Weapon on the pitch at the end of a match. Good game CH.
And my second troll was on sick leave, having caught a nasty bout of the -1 MA in his previous match. The halfling chef did okay, although I think the stolen TRRs impacted you more than they benefited me. Maybe that money would have been better spent on a troll temp. I didn't use the extra apothecary either, but I wouldn't ant to bank on that kind of thing against Chaos.
EDIT: Because I need to proofread my posts but never do.

Drawlien - Do you mind if we postponed our game today? I have a previous engagement and I might not be back in time. I could do tomorrow same time if it helps, if not then I should be free pretty much any evening this week.

Not even half time, still 0-0 and yet this game will have to do something special for Weasel not to cream me thanks to Piling On apparently being an auto-injure button.
Oh well, I was 2/2 so I suppose this was coming.
EDIT: Saurus #3 injured, and when #2 went down and got a niggle I forgot I'd hired a wandering apo that I really ought to have used. I'm such a fucking plank sometimes.

Storm Boyz (President Weasel, Orcs) vs Only Fools Eat Horses (Ian, Lizards)
Apparently the lizards forgot to put their armour on in the first half. As you can see from Ian's post above, Azlop with his piling on and mighty blow cut a massive swathe through Ian's team. You'd expect an orc with mighty blow, block, tackle, piling on to hurt skinks, indeed it's almost like he was designed to hurt skinks (in fact he was designed to hurt amazons, in a fruitless attempt to stop them cuffing me two seasons in a row). You don't expect him to hurt the big lizards every time he throws a block at them, but that's pretty much what happened. The troll or one of the black orcs took out a big lizard too, leaving Ian with 3 saurus, a krox, and 4 skinks on the pitch when he kicked off for the second half. He was 1-0 down too, to a pretty lucky last turn scoop and pass and touchdown from the orcs.
He leveraged his wizard to pull it back to 1-1, but he just didn't have enough saurii to stop me scoring again, and despite a valiant effort at an equaliser he just didn't have enough time or mans to pull it off.
A brutal first half for Ian with some desperately bad injury dice; the game was effectively decided by turn 6.
