Great Bledisloe shots! These are from the stands? Amazing shots! I guess ANZ is more liberal than stadiums here, allowing you to bring a 100-400 II in.

I can understanding why you put down the camera and picked up the beer after halftime, lol... that was a brutal 2nd half for a Wallaby fan.

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.

Key to successful sports photography is to enjoy the game first, the involved spectator with a camera will take better photos than a photographer with a camera who does not care for the game. Enjoying the game with a drink all part of the enjoyment. Spoke to a pro at a cricket match who said he spent same time editing and processing photos as the length of a game. Test cricket 6 hours per day, that's 12 hours for him. He needs a drink.

Thanks.
Yes, from the stands. I'm not sure if they technically 'allow it' but I wasn't quizzed at all coming in. I was actually on the field before the game with my camera taking photos of my junior rugby club who were lucky enough to march around the field prior to the game.

The second half wasn't pretty at all, made even worse by the god awful beer they're selling at the stadium....I still drank it, anything to numb the pain ;)

Ladies Rugby and ladies sport in general is growing rapidly in Australia right now, The spirit which these girls play the game is to be commended. but just as intense as the guys !
Bathurst Bulldogs (Blue and Gold) will this weekend defend their crown after entering the competition last season. As always C&C appreciated !

I know priority is all wrong. Should have drank during the first half and then drank and shot during the second...

I tried that one game and found the AF on my eyes would not function properly ! Speach program slowed considerably and the next day there was absolutely no way I could correct the red eye ! :rolleyes:

I doubt it. Kaz Watson took pic at a slightly different angle which is on the warringah rats insta page and I've seen her shot on fox sports.
Her shot had a syd uni player in the background.
