Playing Rugby

Club Rugby

Let me get this out the way first. I have very little knowledge, and even less interest in Rugby. But what I do know about rugby is that:

  1. Along with cricket, it is the national past time of South Africa
  2. It involves a lot of stopping and crashing into each other
  3. If you have the ball in your hand, there is a distinct possibility that you won’t have it in your hand in a few seconds
  4. Everybody (except for me) is an expert
  5. A game or rugby (thankfully) takes a lot shorter than even the shortest game of cricket, and is only marginally more interesting
  6. It is very important in a social environment to have an opinion on rugby
  7. It does make for a good photoshoot

I took these shots at one of the club fields just down the road from us. I can’t tell you much except that everybody was supporting the players in blue, but the players in black seemed to be winning the game. So I guess the home team were not doing too well.

Here are the rest of the shots.

    I have seen a few rugby matches on TV over the year, it sure is a very intense sport. Which your photo clearly shows.
