Details: Product 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 young rugby fans will enjoy the adventures of Dublin schoolboy Eoin Madden as he tries to help his school win a cup and, at the same time, solve a ghostly mystery … a brilliant read for kids aged ten and up (Rugby World) Rugby Warrior … is a treat (Irish Times) a light and enjoyable story to introduce young American readers to the game (Kirkus Reviews/www.kirkusreviews.com) I knew little about rugby and cared even less, but this is such a good read that I feel quite ‘converted.’ The story is a pacey and warm-hearted account of one boy’s new school term as captain of the under-14s with the responsibilities that brings. It is also a how-to-book: how to develop self-respect; how to deal with divided loyalty to friends who don’t get on; how to deal with bullies; and how to honour the heroes of the past. Eoin, then, is a boy dealing with big issues, but they’re seamlessly woven into a fact-filled story about the team’s efforts to win the cup … a cracking plot with an exciting and unexpected conclusion. The crisp dialogue is full of humour … Highly recommended for any under 14s including girls who want a glimpse into a boy’s world (Historical Novel Society Review) a lively read (Evening Echo) I would recommend this book to anybody who likes rugby … I would give this book 9/10 (SeomraRanga.com) fluid and easy to read (NewsFour) my favourite book ... this book has got loads of stuff, history, intrigue, sport, it’s all woven together! ... an unbelivable book! (Elev8 on RTE2) 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) From the Back Cover Praise for Rugby Spirit: ‘Excellent.
