A couple from Cornish All Blacks (Launceston RFC) v Bournemouth RFC, a real old school rugby afternoon A muddy old day but strangely less than 10 minutes of rain during the whole match. Just a shame in the kicking image the ball was the wrong side of his boot.

Rugby at its finest! It's a bit different now with their synthetic jerseys and indoor stadia, but I remember the old school rugby where the cotton jerseys would weigh twice as much as dry, caked with mud and soaked with rain. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, I can relate! :D

Also, I'm not exactly sure what the big fella is doing on the wrong side of the ruck in the 1st photo! :)

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Heavy Cornish mud. Makes a change from Footie. Yes big shame about the ball being wrong side of his foot.

Great shot. The lighting is cool. I always grab this shot at each game for some reason too. Here's mine from last Saturday.

The North of Scotland is not noted for its bright weather in winter so ISO > 1600 is the norm. Sometimes 12000 ... and then it rains ...

Great shots... remind me of the mud fight scene at the start of "The last remake of Beau Geste"

It's the end of the KPMG Premiership - The Grand Championship Final.

Seems like a suitable image for the (rear) end of the season.

Last one is great, but # 2 for me! As a scrumhalf, I'm always partial to a long pass from the base of the ruck!

I am personally not a fan of even a slight grazing in that area.
