Default Rugby via candle light!

Hi all,
here's a few images from Fri night where bizzarly the Stadium lights failed 1 hr before the kick off of a major playoff rugby game on world wide Sky TV! There was only 2 floodlights in operation come kick off thanks to a genny but all fans where moved to a single stand where there was at least emergency lighting running . The game could not wait for the problem to be fixed as the opposition had a plane chartered for a return to Southern France!!. So they kicked off in vertual darkness which made our job a tadge tricky .
PS all images taken from the light side . Kind regards Graham.




#4 probably one of my best ever try pics wish all the lights had been on!

Great shots Graham especially considering the tough shootings conditions (handled like a true pro). Great capture with the 4 & 5 sequence, was 5 cropped?

I remember the lights going out during an AFL football game here in Melbourne years ago (transformer blew up) and both teams coming back during the week to finish the game off.
