Twelve-year-old Christian Phillips doesn’t think he will make the junior rugby team. When his parents give him a pair of footy boots before the trial – a gift from his late grandfather, a staunch Wallabies fan – Christian is still not convinced. Shocked when he makes the team, and relegated to the wing, Christian soon realises his idea of teamwork is a little different from that of the coach and other boys. Christian spends most games waiting for a pass and decides conforming is easier than challenging the culture of the team. But when they have to face the brutal Scots team on their home turf, a new leader emerges ... From Raewyn Caisley, the acclaimed and established author of TOP MARKS, NOT CRICKET, HOT SHOT, TENNIS STAR, QUEEN’S CUBBY, FREE STYLE and GREAT LEAD, comes another book in the popular Junior Sports Series.
