‘Fox Swift’ book featuring Cyril Rioli launched

July 1, 2013 12:15 PM

A new book for children featuring Hawthorn star Cyril Rioli was launched on Monday, with the first 100 purchases via HawksNest to be signed by Rioli.

Combining a gripping, laugh-out-loud story with expert football tips and training drills from Hawthorn superstar Cyril Rioli, as well as witty cartoons, Fox Swift is the perfect read for any child who’s passionate about Aussie Rules.

Fox Swift is an 11-year-old football star. When his family moves from the city to the small country town of Davinal, Fox has to choose which of the town’s two teams to join: the rich Dragons, which attracts all the best young footballers, or the Diggers, a struggling club that battles to field a side each week.

Following a run-in with the captain of the Dragons, Fox decides to join the Diggers, and even manages to recruit a few new players— two Sudanese refugees, the mumbling but super-tough son of a farmer, and a girl who plays in a helmet to disguise her identity—and even a new coach. When the coach contacts AFL ‘magician’ Cyril Rioli, the Aussie Rules superstar agrees to lend his football expertise to the struggling team.

With Cyril’s help, can the Diggers change their fortunes and win the premiership? And can Fox and his new friends prevail over the school bullies.

Fox Swift is written by comedy writer, David Lawrence whose TV credits include Talkin’ ’Bout Your Generation, TV Burp and Hamish & Andy in conjunction with Rioli.
