My name is Marcus Atkinson and I am nine years old.
Dad's totally lost it! He wants me to play rugby.
Rugby's different from soccer and cricket.
In soccer and cricket you get hurt by accident.
In rugby, they hurt you on purpose!


Marcus Atkinson is a Rugby Champ...NOT! But his Dad is convinced that Marcus has magic in his hands. Can this maths whiz overcome his lack of natural ability through sheer determination? Probably not, but it's worth a try!

Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid will enjoy the cheeky humour and stick-figure cartoons Marcus uses to tell his hilarious story, while kids who love playing sport will enjoy learning a surprising amount about rugby.
