MATCH BLURB -->For the 2nd week running the Blackgang Pirates play a part in the WIBBL Night featured game. The Pirates come into the game looking to bounce back after their shock defeat last week to the Porchfield Punishers. Coach Rosie 'No Beard' Ulrich was quick to point out that this was just a blip and that the pirates would return to winning ways in this game. "Thoz Orkz gat lucky in the last game but it wont affect uz an our preperation for da next game. We aint scared of a load of mummies. Ventnor Dumbell Club aint gonna know what hit them. In fact their name has alot to say about them. Ventnor DUMB bell club. They arr so dumb they wont even pick the ball up. This wont even be a contest. It'll be a walkover. A walkover the plank an into Davey Jones' locker for those DUMB Khemri!! HA! HA!

WIBBL Sports News reporter Bull Sheet went down to Watcombe Bottom to find out how preperations were going in the Khemri camp. Coach I.M. Strong said this to him in a whispered but menacing voice "We are training harder then ever! We shall hit the field running. Hit hard, foul harder and hopefully rout the norse! We shall not rest until their blood covers the field. We will only be satisfied when all of the Pirates have stopped breathing! We shall rule the bloodbowl field, we shall rule the earth!"

MATCH BLURB -->The final game of the night features a battle between the forces of good and evil as the hordes of chaos come up against the elegant steel of the elves.WIBBL Sports News spoke to both coaches in the build up to this big game.

Whirlwinds coach El Rond told us that he was looking forward to the game and that the forces of good always triumph over evil. "The warriors of Chaos are strong but they cant play BloodBowl. I expect my side to run rings around these freaks of nature! Once we have the game in the bag we will focus on cleansing the earth of these abominations. There will only be one winner in this game and that of course will be the Whirlwinds!

Of course there are always two sides to every story and WIBBL Sports News was on hand to find out what the story was at the home of the Cultists. Here's what the Cultists Coach had to say to our reporter, Bull Sheet. "Mmmm elvish spawn next,well we Cultists have overcome the not so horrific Horrors and scared our first opponent the Sharks so badly that not only did they fail to appear but they have disappeared from the face of the Earth. The Chaos gods are fickle and we can only pray that their hatred of the pointy eared ponces will inspire them to favour us in the fight to come. One thing is for certain it will be a bloody battle and in preperation we have ordered a gross of chickens and the only remaining virgin on the Wight Isle ( a lass known only as Boba) to be sacrificed to our patron "Emrys the odorous". Death to the Whirlwinds!! !"

--><p>The little Isle of Wight is an island to the south of the 'White Isle'. Jealous of the success of their larger neighbour, the settlements of the island resolved to have their own league and the Wight Island Blood Bowl League (or WIBBL) was formed.</p><!--
-->This is an English-speaking, UK time zone league, so coaches wanting to join should:<ul type='a'><li>be English speaking</li><li>be able to play between the hours of 19:00-23:00 GMT (20:00-00:00 BBT)</li><li>have experience of playing in FUMBBL leagues</li></ul><!--
--><h4>You can follow developments in the <a href="http://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=14905">group thread</a></h4><!--
--><h4>New Teams</h4><!--
-->Teams applying for membership of the league must be based on one of the island's towns (see below for a list) and must be a rookie LRB4 [L]eague team with a fan factor of at least 7. ALL TEAMS TO PLAY SOLELY IN THE WIBBL. NO OUTSIDE GAMES PERMITTED.

<b>Applicants which do not meet these criteria (i.e. not LRB4, not based in an Isle of Wight town or from applicants with little or no League experience) will be automatically deleted</b>.

To ensure variety, WIBBL has no more than two teams with the same roster in the league and each of these plays in a different conference.<br><!--
--><h4>Restrictions</h4><!--
--><b>No wizards are allowed</b> in league play (the islanders are simple folk and won't have anything to do with men in dresses) but Star Players and Freebooters may be hired if they can be persuaded to head offshore.<!--
--><h4>League play</h4><!--
-->Games are to be played according to the schedule. 1 game/10 days - though a rolling schedule is in place, if you are able to play ahead then you may do so.<!--
--><h4>Scoring</h4><!--

--><h4>League Structure</h4><!--
-->The league is split into two conferences, each with two eight team divisions. After all league matches are completed, the top 4 teams in each division will play a seeded knockout cup to determine the champion for each conference. Once this is decided, the two conference champions meet in the Wight Bowl to determine the overall best team for that season.

The bottom two teams in each division have the dubious honour of playing for the Wooden Spoon. This is - we think - a unique competition to FUMBBL because it's a knockout competition where the <b>LOSER</b> goes through - the aim is, after all, to find the worst team in WIBBL! The eventual winner of the Wooden Spoon will be the team which LOSES the final.

--><p>At the end of each season, teams will be shuffled within their own conference (so if you're in the Vectis conference you'll stay in that conference but will have some different opponents each season). Teams finishing in odd numbered positions in one division will be put with those finishing in even numbers in the other division so that half of each division will swap divisions but each division should stay relatively even in terms of team strengths.</p><!--
