Given that mercs are, to my understanding, not yet implemented, the option given in the last paragraph is not actually an option at the moment.
I suspect that the first option gives you the most flexibility about how you want to play the match. Otherwise, work out how you plan to beat the zons, and select the option that gives you the most benefit with respect to achieving that goal.

Ah yes, that is a good point James!
The plan for defeating the Zons very much relies on the words 'POW', 'Cas' and '6' :D

I'd go 4. You need the maximum probability of getting POWs and Grashnak gives you that. A Wizard is of course great and 1 bribe will hopefully be enough to get plenty of fouls in.

1 is a good choice as James point out and hopefully the chainsaw can make some havoc, but it is rather unreliable.
I would pick 3 myself. Morg is amazing star player. Good stats, block and MB. And can be your ball carrier if such should be needed.
I would pick 5 over 4 simple because of block. Plus you get block and MB on him. DP you can use in the 2nd half if needed and you will have a bribe to make sure he does not get sent off.

2)a) Swop the wizard for the Chainsaw. I believe Brick and Grotty only count as 1 star?
If you don't take Grotty, then don't take a wizard. One of my rules of thumb is don't take a wizard if you can't capitalise on a spilled ball, and rookie nurgle are one of the best examples of that. The chainsaw will be more useful to you.
The saw is useful for hitting his blitzers with, you'll get annhiliated if you haven't got a counter to that guard. Don't expose it, and only use it for a blitz where you can set up a cage around it once it's hit.Max is easier to protect than most, having ST 4...and good luck!

I vote Morg + Chainsaw!

In the end I went for:
Brick Fart' & Grotty
We got off to a good start, chainsawing a Zon straight out of the game, then watching another take a both down and end up off the pitch. For the rest of the first half, it was a scrappy affair and it was 0-0 at the half.
After some client issues, we reconvened for the second half with the Zons receiving, Spleenripper out but the bribe intact. There then proceeded to be a dice desertion for the Zons and a blind referee who missed numerous Nurgle fouls. Eventually Grotty stole the ball and ended up running in the TD for a famous nurgle victory and our first TD of the season.
