Very nice sharp series of pictures, great job Steve! Loved 'em all. Where's the Mid-Air dive pass? Did you get any? Did you get any?

Sorry LT ....... it's still eluding me:(

It either happens when I'm least expecting it or Ifind myself totally in the wrong position or focusing on something else. On at least three occasions I had continuous focus going on scrums from the put-in, the very next scrum on each occasion, when I was taking an 'eye-break', there was thedive pass in all it's glory right in front of me! Beginning to think there is a conspiracy at work amongst scrum-halves. We press on though - you will be the first to know when I eventually get somethingdecent (something more than half a blurry body andwith the ball actually in the frame to boot):G

There has been the lighter moments to this whole endeavour though - our team had a scrum close to their line, I was certain a dive pass was on the cards and thatI was going to have a great capture to take home - perfect positioning, everything. Except our scrum half decided to straighten up and go for the line himself which he did and scored. Those around me couldn't understand why I was cursing him :Dwhen he'd just put five points on the board.

That's funny!! :cool:That's what we do as Scrum-halves. We're tricky like that. You have to think like a scrum-half, be the scrum-half to catch the scrum-half in action:blah:. Those are some nice shots though. Did your son's school win?

They played three games in the festival, won two and lost the other to the sponsor's invitation team (which they shouldn't have). So far this season we are unbeaten against other schools after seven games which is looking quite promising although still another 10 or so games to go. Surely I'll get some decent scrumhalf action by then -Maybe you could have a word?:G
