That poor boy - he's surrounded by the opposition (hope his mum wasn't watching) - and a bit of a high tackle? Great action Danny! Smile

Great action shot! I was wondering if adding a little more blur to the surrounding players would not make the shot dynamic. Here you have frozen the action and eliminated its speed...Just a thought to make a good photograph even better. Cheers,

Looks like the odds are well and truly against him, Danny...and he has just realised it! Poor fellow.
Great sports action capture.

The look of determination/desperation on the face of the man with the ball is classic - good job I don't have to play rugby being female (I am a coward)Wink love the way you have timed this Danny

Is there any space left for some more adverts? I don't think so.

I'm sure they do sometimes Danny. I saw a few last night at the start of the Ireland v France game and they hadn't even started.
Your action images are very good indeed, always.
