    Now that I've retired from rugby I can now go along to my teams home games and take some photos! This is a selection from Saturday this time shot with a 300mm lens instead of a 50 lol.

    Nice timing on these; great set. Never had a chance to shoot rugby; looks like a lot of fun.

    I like the shallow DoF. Reduces the background distractions.

    I have not shot rugby, yet.

    Thanks Brent,

    Guess the advantage I have over Joe Public is I know the players, the team moves so who, when and where to point.

    Thanks Tirediron,

    Seeing all the action goofy faces the players pull is a hoot.

    Thanks, I experimented between f/4.5 - f/6.3 to see how it looked.

    Cool shots Mark! You've got some good expressions on the players faces there. Knowing the game looks like it helped a lot. Rugby is a great game anyway.

    Thanks weepete,

    Played with these guys for many years, I so i knew when to fire off a few shots. This is only 6/91 shots, plenty more funny faces in the others. Can attend 3 more games so hopefully I can improve on the ones I took on Saturday!
