I quite like this near abstract scrum image taken Friday night at the rugby match we went to enjoy in Cape Town. We got seats right at the very top row, meaning we were out of the rain but also far from the action for great pics.
V2 - some eye candy - the entertaining girls before the game started.Smile
V3 - the scrumming
Thanx for all who voted and commented on my bugs !!
Have a super Sunday.

Herman, I know you love rugby (you are a South African; I am American, I love baseball). In V1 it looks like they are all tickling each other. V2 needs no amplification. V3, the scrum looks intense.

I wonder which positions the girls play?

The scrumming for me (Wink of course). Excellent action pics. As the old lady said on a TV show I once saw, "what on earth are they talking about?"
What is that saying "Rugby a game for gentelmen! LOL.
