2017 Britball Roundup | Week 6

Some shocking results (well, result) in Britball in Week 6. We take you around the country in our roundup.

– The London Warriors allow the Blitz a taste of victory before inevitably defeating them in the Britbowl.
– Questions arise: What will the Blitz celebrate more? Their victory over the Warriors, or their 19-3 win over the Essex Spartans?
– Associate team win! The Morecambe Bay Storm determined not to let Morecambe be known for the deaths of exploited immigrant workers, but instead for slightly above average footballing as they rise to 3-1.
– Farnham Knights tell Daily Britball “the prem is overrated anyway”.
– Our game of the week? Glasgow Tigers 16-3 Clyde Valley, with a grand total of 3 second half points.
– Teams on the “now shit” list: Clyde Valley Blackhawks, London Warriors, Edinburgh Wolves, London Olympians

Associate team going to 3-1? London Warriors lose? We begrudgingly give this week 2 Russ Hewitts out of 5, and only because the South Wales Warriors had to walk to their game.

Edinburgh Wolves American Football Head Coach Don Edmonston was said to be “furious” upon learning his team had not been included in NFL.com’s latest power rankings.

“This is typical disrespect” said Edmonston. “Once again the Wolves are ignored. Well, we’ll show them.”

Edmonston, visibly foaming at the mouth at the perceived slight, claimed he read on increduously, getting all the way down to 26 before noticing something was wrong.

“When I got to 32 and we hadn’t appeared, I flipped” he said. “We just finished as runner up in Division One. What more have we got to do?!”
