Love the savage facial expressions that you have captured--it truly personifies Rugby as I know it

#5 is my favorite.

Hiya Graham. Say, if I may, there were a couple of photos were I would have either zoomed out or backed up just bit to avoid cutting someone's head off... I realize this will happen when shooting such sport events... for example, photos 2 and 4.. I think #1 is a little tight... In #3 the head is not missing... It might be better to zoom out and then you can use the computer to edit, crop... etc...

PLEASE do see this a constructive criticism... These photos are really spot on, you really captured some excellent photos, Graham, I really mean that... I offer these points only because your photos are so good -- as a stranger, I don't want come across as perfection (which as a first-born, I really am )... 3, 4 6 really are great... Please send more photos... these are well done.

Ned

Hi pbjunkiee, thank you for taking the time to comment!. I love rugby, it's like American football with no padding or helmets to spoil the facials. Kind regards Graham

#4 was kind of interesting as it appears that one of the red players was totally oblivious to the action going on around him (appears to be casually walking).
