This skill is a Special Rule that is only available to specific Star Players. Please visit this page to find a list of current and past Blood Bowl Star Players.
I’ll Be Back!The first time in a game that Kreek Rustgouger would be Sent-off as per the Secret Weapon trait, he is not Sent-off and instead may continue as part of the game.
This is one of the best special rules going for any Star Player. Kreek is an utter menace being strength 7 along with a movement 5 Ball & Chain. He can hit multiple opponents per turn and his tail also makes him harder to dodge away from.
You can field him at the start of a game where you are kicking and his presence may encourage the other team to score quicker than normal to avoid his damage output. If they don’t then you’ve got plenty of turns from him to try and reduce their numbers. If they do then you hopefully have enough turns left to score in that same half.
If you’re starting the game receiving or it’s the second half in the above scenario then you can line Kreek up for a second drive and hopefully take all 8 turns before you score. He’s the best Ball & Chain player in the game without this ability, the fact you can line him up for two drives without even needing a bribe is crazy good!
The only downside is if you end up having to field him for a short drive due to you not having more than 11 players to leave him in the dug out, so that is something to watch out for, or bear in mind before hiring him.
