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.

Nice action shots!
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!
