Snitch | Children & Youth

Edyth Bulbring

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 pages and realises that it is steroids. What follows turns Ben's life upside down.
