Indeed, try I did for the first time at sports photography, which is a lot harder than it looks. This is Sandbach rugby club scoring a try against Scunthorpe in what turned out to be a convincing victory. At least someone was happy.

Great action shot, especially in mono.

'Decisive moment' timing, plus you've got the ball visible - this is really good.
Rugby isn't my area, but can I make two suggestions? The player who has scored is a bit lost in the mix - a bit of very gentle dodging on highlights would bring his face out a bit better.
And while the figure on the left adds a nice balance, there's also a tighter crop to be had, cutting off everything to the left of the Sandbach signage and a bit of space top and bottom. That would place the ball off-centre in the frame for a more dynamic feel.
Do you fancy enabling modifications... ?

Thanks Moira - for the UA and the critique, I've enabled modifications, didn't know how to do it before today!

Thanks - mod uploaded, I'm not sure if it works.
