Default Six Nations Rugby: Scotland V Italy

Here are a few photos from Saturday's match. All were shot with my 17-85 (I didn't try to sneak in my 70-200 since the stewards can get a bit fussy over longer lenses, as it turns out it would've been OK) and all are pretty heavily cropped since I was around 40 rows back and didn't have much reach.

I was shooting in Tv pretty much all of the time, trying for 1/500th, ISO between 800 and 1600. I'm not sure if the exif is intact but I can post it if you want.






Obviously I would've loved to been using the 70-200, but I am fairly happy with some of the many shots that I took, the main problem that any action on the far half of the pitch wasn't even worth shooting because cropping at 100% wasn't even enough. I would be grateful for any feedback, I was fairly limited by my angles, all shots were from the same position but advice on cropping, exposures etc. would be appreciated.
