  Snitch cover   

13-year-old Ben Smith attends St David's, where rugby is a compulsory sport. After the annual derby against Voortrekker High in which a St David's player is severely injured and rushed to hospital, Ben inadvertently catches a glimpse of a bottle labelled Methyltestosterone in the player's tog bag. But when he is told "It's just vitamins, OK?" by another team member, he remembers some references from the team's facebook page . . . What follows turns Ben's life upside down.
