    She's hot! (sorry, I had to say that). The rugby pics show action, the ball, and emotion, all in one. Nobody in the seats?

    Hi David, thanks for looking.

    No the crowd was poorer than normal, (poor to start with tbh), due to another 4 games being played that night along with TV coverage at 2!. Regards Graham.

    Nice. So good to see you out of the rain finally. Nice shots as always with face/expression, and ball in frame.

    Collegiate 7's in US this past weekend--didn't make it across country but did watch on TV all weekend. Can't wait for fall rugby to start up. 114F in Phoenix this weekend so 7's teams find other cities to play in for summer. Oh well, 70 F in February for a match is what I wait for.

    Cheers Graham.....

    As always, stellar action shots! I just love shooting in the rain! It is so much grittier and interesting.

    But I must say that the exposures on the flame images are spectacular! It's not easy--we have big fire shows here in the US in the sport we inappropriately call 'football'--but you captured all the textures and compartments.

    Still waiting to shoot rugby, but at least I am shooting the Copa America this month! Was hoping to shoot the Champions League final but my schedule didn't allow the travel.

    Always great to see your work, even with empty seats in the background ;-)

    John

    Thank you for your comments Jeff & John, always appreciated on this forum. :). Kind regards Graham.

    Look forward to the images Jeff!.

    Hi John, look forward to the images if you can show them?. The team in claret & gold (home side this week) are 2nd bottom of the league & the fans are a fickle bunch lol.
