Hi all here's a few images from a game the other week (protection heavy) sorry:frown:. Barring #1 (David Hodgson), I've included a single player set for a change his name is Kevin Brown (claret & gold) & he's an England international player. Kind regards Graham.
#1, sprinting clear to put in a team mate for a try.

#2
Surging forward for his try

#3 Scoring the try

#4 Showing strong defence too

#5 Mid-Field tackle to stop the attack

Very nice, all of them, but especially #2. Every time I see your Rugby shots I'm glad I DON'T play this sport!

How come they tackle as much, get as filthy, yet wear very little by way of protection compared to our Football?

Thanks for the look in everyone!

hi Jerry, listening to the bodies crunching up close means I don't wanna play either.

Hi Lisa, these guys are Tougher than tough beleive me!. I guess flesh on flesh is a little easier than a plasic helmet smashing into you?

Hi Tom, thanks

Hello Mark, nice to hear from you yep things have really taken off!, the down side being I can't show much of my work
+ today at the footy I've just smashed on of my cameras!, it dropped from my bag from about 8ft, It's cracked the magnesium body but it still works ok & the 70-200 escaped unharmed i think (will find out tommorrow at the RL)

Ouch, that's nasty! I hope you are insured!? I've not had to use my insurance yet but I'm glad to know it is there.... actually I had a dream last night that one of my cameras fell of a bridge into a river, not so bad in a dream, not good in real life.

Graham, this is my first time seeing your work. I'm impressed...you really capture the dynamics of the game. Number three is my pick. I really like the expressions of the players in you shots. Great work.

Scottie
