    So I was lucky enough to get some tickets for the current Rugby world cup going on in the UK. Went to 2 games, but only took my camera to the 2nd game. Old camera, slow cheap lens, bad lighting, but I think these came out ok. Was my 1st try at sport photography, love it! Was a tough game between Wales and Australia. The Ozzies won 15-6

    They are quite noisy, but I shot some of them at -2 so I could keep up the SS.

    #1 Timing was slightly off, would have loved to have had the ball not on the frame's edge

    #3 The ref is warning the two lads having a 'push off'

    That was one helluva game.
    Australia's defence when they were down to 13 men was unbelievable.

    I like the last two the most out of this set.
    Good effort considering your shooting position.

    Crowd was LOUD on the TV telecast!!!

    Thank you, I was a neutral at the game, but the atmosphere was awesome!
