THE CROWD ROARED AS THE BALL ROCKETED INTO THE BACK OF THE NET.

SPECKY COLLAPSED ON THE GROUND FEELING USELESS AND HUMILIATED.

HE HAD NEVER FELT SO OUT OF HIS DEPTH ON A SPORTING FIELD . . .


Specky has been selected to represent Australia in International Rules, taking on the Irish in a two-test competition in Ireland. Can the boys learn to play with a new set of rules and perfect their skills with the round ball before the Irish team wipes the field with them? And is someone trying to sabotage the Aussie team's chances of winning? The pressure is on, and to make matters worse Specky has some serious decisions to make about his future before he returns home . . .

This trip to Ireland is no holiday and Specky will have to dig deep to face the biggest challenge og his life!

I wish Specky would hurry up and get drafted.
The Tigers would love to have him . . .
Matthew Richardson
