Rugby Zombies

WRITTEN BY Benedict Tuckett

A ragtag group of misfits and losers play in a suburban rugby team, that every year comes bottom of the league.
When their hapless manager loses their weekly training spot at the local rugby pitch, he comes up with an alternative plan. At the end of the local industrial zone is an abandoned Chemical Factory, the grounds of which are perfect for night training, and best of all- its free!
But what the team don't know is that toxic waste from the plant has leeched into the ground, and as they practice, scraping knees, elbows and flesh, it enters their bloodstream with unforeseen results.
The upside- they have superhuman strength and speed, the downside - the infection has killed them, but reanimated them with a craving for human flesh! Decimating the competition with each subsequent match, they make it to the national final - if only they dont get disqualified for using the ref's head as a rugby ball!
