Schools rugby star Eoin Madden has never been busier – he’s captain of the Junior Cup team, he’s training with Leinster and hoping to be chosen for the Ireland team for the first-ever Under 16 World Cup. But it’s not all fun and games, as Eoin also has to deal with grumpy friends, teachers piling on the homework – AND a ghost on a mission that goes back to the very origins of the game of rugby. But what does the restless spirit need, and can Eoin help him?

the fifth in this highly popular series about schools rugby

Irish Mail on Sunday

engrossing mix of schoolboy rugby tactics and match action with skulduggery and crime to a very satisfying finishing line

Ireland’s Own

skulduggery to make rugby fans’ hearts skip a beat

Evening Echo

the power of Gerard's writing to get a distinctly non sporty person like myself enjoying what is a thriller filled tale is evident in this latest instalment in the rugby series … it's going straight to my reread shelf!

Nayu’s Reading Corner

thrilling rugby action plus ghosts plus mystery … the latest in Gerard Siggins’ Rugby Spirit series is typically filled with rugby action so vividly described that you feel you’re there on the pitch … the mix of on-pitch and off-pitch action with mystery and history is well handled and there’s lots to appeal to all readers, but particularly young rugby fans
