Thank you Crypt, I'm positively pulsating with excitement to bring you this weeks match recaps. At least I think it's excitement it may also be the earthworms digging though my rotting flesh! Before we get to the NBP-Pro matches we have a quick preview of the second round match ups for the Ronnie Rott Invitational! Who will be Mr Rotten? We have 5 Undead teams and 3 Necro teams left! Let's take a look!

Lots of great action left in the tournament, stay tuned to Cabal TV to catch all the match ups! Now let's get to our Pro recaps. We start as always in Tar and Feather where #Swole took on Rolling Bones. In what could possibly be described as an upset, #Swole was handed their first regular season loss here in Nuffle Be Praised! Rolling Bones brought the pain and the talents of AG4 Wight Hillel Slovak to shut out #Swole 2 to 0.

I'm feeling a great sense of Deja Vu here but I just can't put my finger on why.

In the other match up in Tar and Feather Strong Bad's Awesome team clashed with Gremlins 2. The Skaven squad shot ahead quickly with a touchdown. However the strength of the chaos bash allowed Strong Bad's Awesome Team to press the numbers advantage and win the match 2 to 1.

Now on over to the Deep Dark Division where Loki's Toys took on Pine Crags Pronghorn. Pine Crags Pronghorn just couldn't get things going in this match, as their players played well below expectations which Loki's Toys capitalized on. Controlling the match against the Wood Elves and winning 2 to 1.

The Pronghorn couldn't keep the norsemen out of the end zone all day.

In our other D3 match-up The Green Plague did battle with Goth Bondage Party. The Dark Elves used their agility and movement advantage to steal the 1 to 0 victory over those 'ornery orcs. These teams wills meet again later in the season, will The Green Plague avenge their loss?

A Strength five dark elf has to be a violation of league rules, Painjoy is being investigated for PED use.

Now we head over to the Western Conference and over to Anarchy and Ale. In our first match up Varangian Guard took on Slingers. Neither team was able to get an advantage, leading to a 1 to 1 tie. The second such tie in a row for Varangian Guard.

Am I watching a blood bowl match or seeing a ska band in concert?

In the other match up of Anarchy and Ale Sticks and Stones took on The Springfield Atoms. Sticks and Stones were all over the pitch, using their speed and agility to constantly threaten the score and make plays on the ball, defeating Springfield Atoms 2 to 0.

Next we head over to The Salt Works where The Dead Men of Dunharrow matched up with Dumpster Diving Lizards. In a second strong showing by Dumpster Diving Lizards, The Dead Men had no answers losing the match up 2 to 0.

In the other Salt Works match The Theten Second Coming took on Club 27. Ol' El Ron's Squad couldn't get it done as Jim Morrison and his gang of undead troubadours ruled the day, winning the match 1 to 0.

When Jim Morrison died in 1969 he almost immediately went to playing blood bowl. Pretty confusing to see a Wight call himself “The Lizard King”.

Next up we head over to NBP Europa where we first check in with The Old World where Dangerous Warriors took on Brittany Privateers 2. Those nasty skaven kept up their momentum from week one, scoring 3 touchdowns against the Chaos Squad winning the match 3 to 0.

So many scoring threats on The Privateers at any given moment any one could break one.

Lastly we head over to Beheaded Kings where Bootsers took on Tree Huggers Affiliated. The Lizards of Bootsers controlled the pitch, maiming wood elves in their way onto a 2 to 1 victory over Tree Huggers Affiliated.

If I stayed up all night trying to I could never pronounce that players name.

In our last match up of the week Kiss of Death took on Rockport Redbacks. The chaos and humans decided to square up on each other and play the bash game. The Chaos came out ahead, in both the injuries and the touchdowns winning 2 to 1.

Another beast-man scoring a touchdown its becoming an epidemic!
