AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The gridiron field, green and perfect under bright Friday lights seemed a world away from the tough, dirt-blown rugby grounds of his home. But life has ways of sidestepping even the best planned plays, and when Ozzie leaves the only place he's ever known for a town on the other side of the world, he doesn't know that he's about to run on in the hardest game he'll every experience. The game they call growing up.' Source: http://www.uqp.uq.edu.au (Cited 24/05/2012)
