Pump Up the Crowd

Once per game, when Skrorg causes an opposition player to be removed as a Casualty as the result of a Block action, Skrorg’s controlling coach gains one team re-roll. If this re-roll has not been used by the end of the drive, it is lost.

This is a weaker version of Lord Borak’s special rule. I would see it as a bonus to taking Skrorg and not a specific reason to seek to hire him. As you have to use it in the drive that it is earned you want to be careful when you activate it. If you cause a casualty right at the end of a drive you may not have enough time left to use it. This is especially the case if you’ve already got plenty of team rerolls left already.

On the flip side, if you don’t take it then you might end up not causing a casualty for the rest of the game. Of course that could be the case for the entire game and you never get an opportunity to Pump Up the Crowd.

Ideally you would want to get this on the first turn of a drive when you are in control of the ball. If the other team has control of the ball then they might just decide to score sooner to deny you the use of that extra reroll. Given the current state of the game due to the turn structure this could actually play into your hands to achieve a 2-1 grind
