by Dan James

South's Bulldogs need to get into the finals of the under-11's rugby union competition. But first, they have to face the Eastern Warriors, the South East Cats, then the dreaded Western Rebels... Just as it seems that Bootsie's dream is within reach, one disaster after another strikes. With supportive parents on the side line and an ex-international test player as coach, Bootsie and teammates discover that there is more to the game than just winning or losing.
