About this Book

Eoin Madden's having a busy term with friend issues, schoolwork and new rugby challenges; he's been moved up to train with the Junior Cup team, which is hard work, plus there's trouble in his dormitory as mobile phones start going missing!

But as usual there are ghostly goings-on in Castlerock school - what's the link between Eoin's history lessons and the new spirit he's spotted wearing a Belvedere rugby jersey? ... Historical and modern mysteries combine in this intriguing tale of rugby, rebellion and ghosts.

'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 on Rugby Warrior

a well written story of school life and the ups and downs of friendship, with intriguing mysteries real historical characters brought vividly to life ... much broader appeal than just sports fans as it is packed full of fun, action and adventure
- * Children's Books Ireland Recommended Reading Guide *

an old-fashioned adventure story ... The descriptions of rugby practice sessions and matches would make little sense to anyone unfamiliar with the game, but these sections are quite short and the mystery and adventure elements of the book are enough to keep more general readers interested ...The narrative moves at a brisk pace and the language is clear enough for readers of nine and over. On the whole, a very enjoyable book
- * Historical Novel Society *

a great book ... gripping ... a brilliant read for ages 8 years upwards ... a knowledge of rugby is not necessary but could make it more enjoyable
- * InTouch *
