Very nice. I have been thinking about selling a couple lenses and get a 100-400 for outdoor sports. Not sure if it will be fast enough for indoor sports, though.

Nope, I don't even try using the 100-400 indoors.
But I suppose it could be done if you can go high enough with the ISO

They look very good and as said , the focus looks spot on ,The only thing I would suggest on the last image , is move the player more to the right . My personal choice but I think it will make a very good shot special .

Can I ask what aperture you used

apparently, if I was in that 'scrum' I would want heavy duty thigh pads, shoulder pads, and a helmet with a face shield

No you don`t need all that gear rugby is a mans game not a FAIRY`S game ,No crash helmet & plastic boddy armer.
Some good action photo`s in your set.

Thx, I know rugby is fun but at my age (over six decades) I wouldn't get on that field even with a ton of body armor :)

I agree. Took a shot of a pal of mine playing Rugby and just a simple recrop to move him off centre (and allow space for him to throw the ball) made all the difference...

Why did you cut off their legs on a couple of the shots? I think sport shots are more effective by cropping close, but not so close you cut off body parts of the main subject. Sports shots (to me anyway) are not like the new style chop that everyone seems to be doing these days. Just sayin.
