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.


Once per game, when an opposition player is Knocked Down as the result of a Block action performed by Rumbelow, you may apply an additional +1 modifier to either the Armour or Injury roll. This modifier may be applied after the roll has been made.

On the surface this is similar to Crushing Blow except you can also choose to use it on the injury roll, so that’s what I’d recommend you look to do. Unfortunately Rumbelow doesn’t also have Mighty Blow to combine it with. Depending on the team you are using Rumbelow with there is a good case that you will be blitzing with him fairly regularly so I don’t feel the need to just use this on the first opportunity that it comes up. He isn’t going to get sent off like any of the Secret Weapon players (unless you are fouling with him for some crazy reason) so hopefully saving the ability will pay off and perhaps turn a stun into a KO, or a KO into a casualty later the game.
