Rugby is my most favorite sport in the world. I played when I was young and still have great sympathy with players.

Hello Takero - Well one thing is for sure, I would hate to be caught up in a rugby scrum; these men look totally fearless and very determined to get possession of that ball. An excellent action shot..... my husband is also a big rugby fan but he prefers soccer.
Greeting from Namibia. Rosemary

Another wonderful sports shot, I am amazed at how clear you are able to capture this with such fast movement taking place. Excellent portrait of this moment in time.
Best wishes from a very stormy Ireland!

I enjoy your sports photos very much. You are very good at capturing the most exciting moments, also those that probably hurt most. I love the intensity of the bodies and the strong feelings expressed by the players' faces. The sharpness is perfect on the poor man nearest to us.

great capture of an intense moment. You can almost feel the pressure of the game. The players look like bees in those striped uniforms:)

Your sports shots are always something different and exciting, Takero. The sense of impact here is really stunning, and you've captured the contest at its height well, especially in the hand slamming into the man in FG's forehead, and the perfect recording of his expression. Thanks!

You have many great "rugby" photos. This one again shows the heart and spirit of the game ... and it shows your understanding and empathy for its players.
