His life changes forever when he discovers an amazing game he has never seen before - rugby! Gordon knows this is the sport for him, he just has to play. It turns out he is pretty good!

Gordon heads off to a new school leaving the farm behind. But it turns out that his skills from the farm come in more useful than he expects - even on the rugby field! Soon, Gordon's dreams of wearing the green jersey don't seem too far away ...
