Thinking Man’s Troll

Once per half, Ripper may re-roll one dice that was rolled either as a single dice, as part of a multiple dice pool (this cannot be a dice that was rolled as part of an Armour, Injury or Casualty roll).

Rerolls are always a helpful back up to have in a skill form and this ability can be used once per half rather than once per game which is also nice. Generally though I don’t think that Ripper will be performing too many risky dice rolls in the first place.

The majority of the time you are going to be blocking with him and with his high strength of six it shouldn’t be that hard to line him up with three dice blocks more often than not. Of course the risk with blocking is rolling skulls or both down, especially as he has neither Block or Wrestle. So it’s those occasions that I can really see this being used the most, especially against stronger teams where it’s harder to get three dice on your blocks.

Alternatively you might be using him for a Throw Team Mate attempt and this gives you a chance to reroll the throw if you fumble it at the first attempt. Not one of the strongest star player abilities but can still be useful and is far from being the worst.
