A Legend Lands on Lustria (bench)
Nehru (http://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=11354032) is Rogue Industry's (RI) captain, star blitzer, ball carrier and longest serving player. He’s played in 68 of their total 72 games has scored just over one third (39) of RI's 113 total touchdowns.

As a particularly strong elf with a safe pair of hands, skilled in blocking and dodging Nehru, tends to hog the ball. He’s been on the cusp of achieving Legend status for a while, but neither he, his team, or coach have being doing so well lately, and it seemed like maybe the glory days were over.

Things changed last game, a the Lustria Challenge Qualifier final, with a unique outcome that could not been in almost any other situation.

RI faced off against Hashuut Fanatics a formidable force led by Cedric19, a fumbbl Legend in his own right, and with an impressive list of accolades including Warpstone Open XII and XFL IX Chaos Dwarves Champions.

RI received in the first half, with Nehru running with the ball as usual, but unable to reach the endzone before being knocked over, forcing a scramble for the ball. RI managed to recover possession with the witch AWS grabbing the ball and finding the endzone, cementing her own Star Player status. But Nehru was hit with a ferocious block just before the touchdown and the halftime whistle, causing such severe nerve damage that he was stretchered off the pitch and is unlikely to play again for a while.

RI managed to retain their lead through a tough second half, with only two players remaining on the pitch by the final whistle, scoring one of the side's most hard fought victories.

With Nehru not around for the next game, and several players close to promotion, tactical considerations ruled him out of the running for a valuable MVP award. Having failed to secure any achievements of note on the field itself, it seemed Legend status would have to wait at least another couple of games.

But something strange happened in the post-match debrief. Without getting the nod from the coach, Nehru was awarded an MVP anyway! At first there was confusion. Had Nehru been selected him in error, maybe from force of habit? Not so, as Aldi the guarding lineman had already collected his MVP. Turns out qualifying for the Lustria Challenge is rewarded with an extra MVP, which Nehru received, cementing his status as a Legend!

He’ll miss the first game due to injury, but the LC is a unique major without a KO system, guaranteeing 4 matches for the 16 qualifying teams. Come what may, Nehru, will take the field. It may be on the bench in the first instance, but Nehru, Rogue Industry’s first and only Legend, has arrived in Lustria!
