Emce, really nice action shot. I know nothing about rugby but not sure what part of this would be considered "Friendly"
Not a sport played much in this area.
Bit of a an oxymoron.. friendly rugby.. lol. In this case it was organised between the two clubs, non league and out of season. Just to level it up a bit as they normally play in different leagues, their first team against our third with some veterans and no ringers.. though a few second team players sneaked out.
I love it, didn’t know anything about the game until a couple of years ago, an old mate and and just retired work colleague manages the first team said it was ok to do a bit of togging. I’m now retired and part of the furniture at the club. Once you work out the likely flow of play it’s a great game to photograph, I don’t bother snapping the mauls as they just look like a mass bundle to me. But scrums, line outs, huge tackles long runs etc give great scope for some decent shots. Get snapping and get some images posted here, the grittier the better!
