Book Description

It's a new school term and Eoin Madden has new responsibilities. He's now captain of the Under 14s team and has to deal with friction between his friend Rory and new boy Dylan as they thrash it out for a place as scrum-half.

And away from the pitch Eoin has his hands full. He starts work on a project about Irish-born All Black Dave Gallaher who died in World War I. Then history becomes reality when an old book brings Eoin a lot closer to the rugby legend than he ever thought possible ...

Fast-paced action, mysterious spirits and feuding friends - it's a season to remember!

Review

beautifully crafted by Siggins, this is a book that will thrill any rugby-mad youngster while delighting sports fans (of any age) with an interest in entertaining storytelling (Irish Daily Mail)

refreshing change to find a story about rugby and one which I am sure will be well received by rugby fans as well as sports fans in general (Parents in Touch)

an action-packed story with plenty of exciting matches plus an interesting historical perspective (Parents in Touch)

my favourite book ... this book has got loads of stuff, history, intrigue, sport, it's all woven together! ... an unbelivable book! (Elev8 on RTE2)

fluid and easy to read (NewsFour)
