Description

A Break in Mendoza is the inspirational story of a courageous 15 year old English boy who breaks his neck in a rugby match in Argentina, needing major surgery before he can return home. He and his father don’t speak Spanish; a near catastrophic injury and a near impossible situation! The rugby community rallies. Luke is determined to recover and play his beloved sport again. With unconditional support from new Argentinian friends, international players, skilled medical professionals and iron resolve, he does just that. An emotional father and son journey, A Break In Mendoza charts a year in the life of a young rugby player trying to put his life and rugby career back together and the extraordinary events along the way.

The father and author is Carl Igolen-Robinson.

Further details

This is CARL IGOLEN-ROBINSON’s first book. The idea to put his son’s story down in writing first came to him after a chance meeting with a friend in the fixtures and fittings aisle of a DIY shop. When asked by his friend what his news was, Carl told the story. By the time he’d finished, his friend was in tears. Decision made; the story needed to be shared!
Carl is donating 100% of his royalties of the sale of this book to the RFU Injured Players Foundation.
