Book 2 in my new Rugby Academy series.
The Borderlands boarding school rugby team have made it into the European Rugby Championship Tournament.
They’re enjoying their time in Toulon, France, but Rory and the rest of the team can’t help thinking about each of their parents, serving overseas in the growing conflict in the Central Asian Republic.
Can the boys focus on the game enough to win the final and make it to the International Tournament?

“Tom Palmer brings the boys off the page vividly and I swear that I could hear the crowd screaming in the final. Any rugby enthusiast is going to love this book, but if, like me you know next to nothing about the game, then it’s still a darn good story and there’s the added bonus of collectable rugby cards attached to the covers. It’s thought provoking too, on the subject of sportsmanship and competitiveness as well as learning to work with people who might not immediately appeal to you. ” Bookbag
“A really enjoyable read, with excellent characters and an authentic background; perfect to encourage reluctant readers and to show them just how great good stories are.” Parents in Touch
