Rugby Zombies: The Last International by Dan Anthony

Will the Rugby Zombies finally manage to play an international match? This is Dan Anthony's final novel in the trilogy of stories about the Welsh Rugby Zombies. They still need to play an international match to exorcise their shameful past but this time Arwel is less inclined to help them.


Arwel is a mediocre rugby player, not good enough to play for Aberscary Comprehensive School - except when he plays with the Zombies, when he becomes a heroic, unstoppable player.

Arwel is sidetracked into changing his image when he agrees to be interviewed by the keen sixth form editor of the Aberscary School newspaper sixth form girls dont usually bother with thirteen-year-old boys! So, when a match is arranged it is up to Arwels friends to deliver him and the Zombies to a mysterious valley in France to play against another unusual team.
