Nicely done. Liking #3, 420mm at f4 on a full frame body gives sweet shallow DOF!

Great shots Graham! I'm not much of a rugby person, but I can appreciate the raw emotions you've captured.

I'm curious, being club photographer, what kind of reactions do you get from the team? Rugby seems great for getting some really funny faces. (Also if I was the guy in #5, I'd be telling the tackler, "Dude, that's NOT a hand-hold" )

Take care, and thanks for posting.

Thanks for the look in guys!
Hi Mark,yep I'm loving the FX cameras but I think I'll suffer come the Footy season when a converter struggles with the floods & 300 just ain't long enough!!I wanna 400 2.8 but can't justify the cost at the mo!!.

Hello Stranger!! (I've always wanted to say that LOL), I get a lot of "tape" (see the strappings on the players), chucked at me in jest at full time, but on the whole they love to see their images in the next home games programme or on the website>

Thanks Colin, much appreciated.
