Schools rugby star Eoin Madden has never been busier - he's captain of the Junior Cup team, he's training with Leinster and hoping to be chosen for the Ireland team for the first-ever Under 16 World Cup. But it's not all fun and games, as Eoin also has to deal with grumpy friends, teachers piling on the homework - AND a ghost on a mission that goes back to the very origins of the game of rugby. But what does the restless spirit need, and can Eoin help him?

Books, crooks and rucks - it's all to play for this term!
