The life of a professional sportsman can be a self-absorbed existence in which the bounce of the ball, or a borderline decision by a match official, can be afforded an importance out of all proportion to reality. That was brought home to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats star half back Jamie Rooney and his partner Erika when eldest son Brennan was diagnosed as suffering from cerebral palsy. High Ambitions charts, in stirring detail, a rite of passage as the Rooney family comes to terms with Brennans progress, Jamie Rooney all the while battling to keep his Super League career afloat under mounting domestic pressure. This moving story will touch the heart of any reader as it follows Jamies progression up the ranks of rugby league from Travellers Saints to Featherstone Rovers before signing for Super League side Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and becoming an England international. It reflects Jamies passion for rugby league from growing up in Featherstone as well as his strong sense of family. Any true rugby league fan will sympathise with Jamies struggle to juggle family with rugby league as they follow Jamies highs and lows in his enthralling and sometimes poignant book.
