Some of you may recognise Cathal from other pictures in my portfolio. He usually looks like an angel (!!) but here is a shot of him in action for his rugby team last Sunday morning. It was a terrible morning with driving rain and low light. It was so cold that one of the kids on the opposing team put a hoodie on over his strip. Around these parts, we're dedicated to our rugby and photography!

1/1500 sec @ f/3.2, ISO 800

Great image, how old is he? because here they have to play tag rugby, non contact and no kicking out of hand until high school,
and they wonder why we get stuffed by the blacks! lol

it looks like a big hand off is coming, is that the next shot?

Cheers

A rare moment in sport these days - the sight of any emotion other than the victory smirk or the we-wuz-robbed scowl. Mind you, I'm not sure quite what we have here - fear, elation, I'd-rather-be-doing-my-homework - but it all looks so genuine and you have captured the moment perfectly.
Good to see you on the site again!
Regards
Bill

Whatever it is it isn't 'I'd-rather-be-doing-my homework'. Can you believe it he is still up, homework not finished yet, sitting at the same table as me - I'll kill him!!!

He has such determination on his face and it has a real sense of the cold, the guy in the hoode really looks as if he wants to be somewhere else.
