Guts and Glory

Buboes, phlegm, blood and guts! Boils, bogeys, rot and pus! Blisters, fevers, weeping sores! From your wounds the fester pours.

As the carnage and mayhem erupted all around, tails and scales flew, cold blood ran through the unkept shabby grass it was all happening in slow motion, this was the big time its all hanging on me now…

He took a deep gargling breath.

Just get the ball, just pick it up and run, run as fast as you can do not stop, run run run! Do not stop until these fluid filled lungs give in….and then crawl crawl crawl…Remember what coach said…

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

Coach VpowerV 2017 S10

Nearly there, I can do it I can make it, keep going, it’s down to me!

The stadium erupted into a chorus of hooves stamping and vicious cheers,so loud it deafened the goblin lineman at the corner flag. Hector the Poorer had done it, In the nick of time at the final hour he had somehow covered the entire length of the pitch and scored to force overtime against the Lord of the Skinks in the Final of the MML playoffs!

The team slowly ambled back on to the pitch and lined up, they weren’t used to playing this long and it had been a tough battle. The valiant Lizards coached by the famous Lazertrip had fought hard, numbers surly favoured the Abomination Nation now though? but the nation were missing key players no ball carrier was to be seen! Kardel the killer Rotter had been abit too enthusiastic early on and taken a huge body slam and injury from a beefy Saurus, that would see him sit out the rest of the game. The more experience Rotter Ulf had been sent off after one of the most disgusting and brutal fouls ever seen on or off the field, his former coach Gloworm would have been proud. Ex Human Blizter Moussa Dembele was also KO’d after spending most of the game toe to toe with a big old reptile and now rather wobbly on his feet….

Again eyes fell to a young scared rookie

this is why you are here, it’s in your soul’ 

yelled VpowerV from the sides.

Ill do him proud, it’s his legacy and I’m going to finish it. Hector the Poor was the greatest Rotter that ever lived! my uncle, my hero, now im here to follow in his foot steps and win this for him! Once again Hector Hector Hector will be chanted around stadiums high and low I’ll make sure of it!

…..Slam the ball hit the turf! followed by some bile and abit of gagging was it the flu, last nights curry or just the sheer elated fatigue?! Hector fell to his knees and punched the sky 2-1!

Coach VpowerV shed a tear…. or was it a cyst leaking, either way it had been an emotional day and a historic first for all involved!!

Abomination Nation had done it Nurgle had done it, the mission they set out to achieve was complete!

#4Horsemen there can be only one



but for one plucky Rotter the journey was just beginning……
