`Ok, lads, you have everything you need to win this game. So go out and do it ,' said the coach.

Eoin's not sure if it will be so easy! He's just started a new school ... and a new sport. Everyone at school is mad about rugby, but Eoin hasn't even held a rugby ball before!

With new rules to learn, new friends to make and new teachers to get a handle on, he really doesn't need to have Richie Duffy, the resident bully, picking him out as his latest target!

And just who is this guy, Brian, who looks so out-of-date, but gives great rugby advice?
