Rugby Rookie by Gerard Siggins


Book 9 in the acclaimed Rugby Spirit series.

Eoin Madden is back at school, and on the Senior Cup team, but he’s not enjoying the game as much as he used to. He’s such a good player that he’s been promoted to the rugby Senior Cup Team early and he can’t get used to playing with lads two years bigger and older than him – especially when his pals are all still playing at the younger age-level.

Alongside his rugby worries, Eoin is concerned about a rugby ghost he’s never met before – George Stack, the very first captain of Ireland’s first rugby team in the 19th Century. How is he connected to Eoin’s grandad, former rugby great Dixie Madden, and what is he trying to tell Eoin?

It’s a term full of excitement as Eoin and his friends become embroiled in a foiling a robbery in the new Aviva Stadium rugby museum and meet the spirit of Ireland’s first ever rugby captain.

Scrums, rucks and lessons from the past – everything’s in play for Eoin and his friends this term.
