Meet the ‘Bench Warmers’ - Danny, Crystal, Angie, Omyr, Leanne and Cody. As the new basketball players at Robdale Primary, they’ve been lumped together. According to hot shot Greg ‘The Goat’ McGriffin, they don’t have a chance of winning a lunchtime game. But when the gang are picked as part of the school squad things start looking up! It’s not all swishes and alley-oops though, as the school’s principal takes over as coach, despite knowing NOTHING about basketball. Now, not only do the Bench Warmers have to listen to their captain, Greg, telling them how good he is, they have to train themselves! Can the newbies shake off their name in the interschool comp, or will it be just another reminder of where they really belong?
