KEEPING POSSESSION

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments and clicks on yesterday's PAIN.

Also, thanks Bernie for your Award - most appreciated.

Caught this after the lad had been vigorously tackled - managed to keep possession - gets up and goes on to touch down ! Unfortunately he scored out of camera range. Pity I missed that lol !

Have a great weekend everyone !

Chris

Reckon they need their grass trimmed though.
Unless the home team find this an advantage.!!

This is a great shot but I really don't like the noise you've added in processing — it makes him look like he has terrible measles!

Nice action shot again Chris, the B&W really works for this sort of stuff imho.

Also tell the groundkeeper he needs to mow the lawn, could get tripped up in that grass Tongue
