Beautifully timed, first-class detail and colour. Unusual and refreshing to see such a shallow dof in a sports photograph.
I'm pleased you used the title wording you did rather than "le clutch" which is sometimes evident in rugby photos and undoubtedly a sight more painful BlushGrinBlush
Excellent shot Danny.

The blurring of the periphery really concentrates the eye on the main action, Danny: another great action shot.
I agree with Bill's comments, always so well thought out.

It is a very good shot. I agree with the blur, though less obvious blur could work. The problem with the existing is that it has the manin players legs, at the outside, included in the blur, whereas he needs to be fully sharp. The guys tackling need to be more in focus, but that background board blurred would be fine.

This looks a lit like the iris blur in CS6, and perhaps a regular lens blur, on a layer and mask would have been better.

An excellent action shot, Dan, but have to agree with Willie on the blur. Good choice to use the blur on though, a head-on shot giving you the perfect chance to use the effect.
