Gordons Game: Blue Thunder

9.59

Gordon D’Arcy is an ordinary boy, but he’s not so ordinary once he gets a rugby ball in his hands. He’s the star player for Wexford Wanderers and dreams of one day wearing the Ireland jersey. A dream like that means hard work, raw talent and never losing sight of your goals. But Gordon has a wild streak that often lands him in trouble. Mum and Dad think that if he can just channel his energy, all will be well. Then something utterly mad happens and he gets a chance to live his biggest dream. Can he stay on his game and do everyone proud? Or will trouble follow him – like it usually does?

Description

Gordon is back for more mayhem and mischief in the second book in the laugh-out-loud Gordon’s Game series!
__________

Gordon D’Arcy – the only kid at school with a Six Nations medal hidden under his pillow! Though helping Ireland to win the Grand Slam feels like it was just a dream.

Now, he’s been given a brand new challenge – the chance to play for Leinster.

After learning so many lessons playing for Ireland – including how to make a complete eejit of himself in front of millions of people – fitting in at Leinster should be a breeze. Right?

Unfortunately, not. After his first training session, he sees why the team is mocked for being ‘soft’ (those stories about players wearing fake tan? All true!). Now he knows why so many people from Leinster support Munster.

But Gordon settles down to work under an inspiring coach named Joe Schmidt. Joe promises that, with hard work, discipline and a bit of self-belief, Leinster can win the European Cup.

Maybe another dream can come true!
