I tell you what, they're turning it on here today, folks. They're putting on a ring-a-ding-ding contest . . . And who is that lad in the number five guernsey?
Specky can't wait to get to the country and have the chance to play grassroots football for the first time . . . against adults. But more is at stake than the outcome of just one game.
Who is Razorback Jack, the mysterious footy hero that Specky keeps hearing about? And what are the boys back at Booyong High up to?
Can the massive underdogs, the Rivergum Redfins, serve it up to the Bull Ants? We have got a game on our hands this afternoon . . .
