Rugby Zombies 2

Following his sensational win against Aberscary RFC, things should be going better for arwel. But at the start of the sequel to The Rugby Zombies, it’s quite the reverse.  Two shocking performances, one for the school team and the other for the Aberscary firsts, leave Arwel totally humiliated and his dad, Mr Rugby, out in the wilderness.  The committee has passed a vote of no confidence in Dad and, in the meantime, the rugby zombies have gone wild and are creating havoc across Wales! When Arwel finally catches up with them, the zombie hooker, Number Two, is missing and is being held captive by his former boss in a coal mine. Although Dad manages to arrange an international match for the Zombies - as all avid rugby fans will know – you can’t play rugby without the hooker!
Can Arwel, and friends, Beth, Martin and Glen, manage to tame the wild zombies, rescue Number Two, restore Mr Rugby’s reputation and win a match against a team made up of international players…?
This eagerly awaited sequel to the popular bestselling first novel, The Rugby Zombies, is sure to be enjoyed by children over nine years old but this humorous, witty story will also appeal to the young-at-heart.
