Anatomy Of A Try

By John_Humphreys
Our Under 13s won the 'Pat Lawlor' Cup at a major rugby blitz organised by UL Bohemians at the University of Limerick last Saturday. Pat Lawlor, now deceased, was a well known rugby and soccer player in Limerick in the 1970s whose son Mossie plays in the present day Munster team.

This sequence of shots shows one of our boys running down the touch line to score a try.

Superb series leading to the try. The face expressions tells it all.

Good action sequence. As a non-fan I have to say I'm bowled over by the mini-spectator reaction in #1!

V1 for the child; V4 for the expression - he knows he's going to make it now. The whole set for the fun of mousing over! Really excellent work.

Good series of action shots, John. Particularly like the shots where you have isolated the player. Three of these converted to mono and made into a triptych might look good. Just an idea.

I have just had a lot of fun running through these to make an animated version. Do try it.

Great picture!
I'm voting on your photo here from India as I have a lot of problems with the Qatar internet! Will do a bit of catching up on your other profile photos once the problem is solved!
Have a great day!

You really are a master at this John. Each one is brilliant and tells the story well.

You're quite right. The reason there isn't a No. 9 is because the final shot unfortunately wasn't sharp enough; it was slightly out of focus.
