I love playing rugby!It's such a great sport~These images are really amazing.
October 13, 2009 at 9:41 am
I feel for the players…the two teams' colours are almost indistinguishable.
October 13, 2009 at 9:43 am
Hot guys in stripes! What more can a girl ask for in a photo. The last one is my fave.
October 13, 2009 at 9:51 am

Fantastic! These form such a great contrast to the pictures we usually see here…
October 13, 2009 at 10:18 am
I've always thought that that leap in the line out is one of the most graceful parts of this sport. This looks like it was taken at dusk, the light is beautiful.
October 13, 2009 at 10:21 am
Ahh long live those Trinners boys!Ruth @ Matches
October 13, 2009 at 10:22 am

Sart, please accept my apology for suggesting you took one shot" only "in Dublin. Again great shots…Thank you soooooooooo much…
October 13, 2009 at 10:51 am
the first picture remembers me an advertising for the brand RUGBY by RL
October 13, 2009 at 10:54 am
great photos. I really get the urge to go out and get dirty. But why are both teams wearing red striped jerseys? It isn't very practical.
October 13, 2009 at 11:14 am
Love these photos…
October 13, 2009 at 11:18 am
Go on the Oirish!, don't forget there's lots of irish who play rugby and GAA in Dubai too! We would love it if you came to Dubai to shoot them ;-)

Come on Ireland, we love our rugby here!!

Sorry, to be the one to give you a bit of criticism, but speaking as a professional photojournalist I'd say stick with the street portrait.

Look at the jumping red hair guy in the second photo! He looks like a god stuck in the air. He is so comfortable up there.Plus…the light in this picture is simply perfect.Well done Scott, as usual.
October 13, 2009 at 11:54 am
great shots…i hope you enjoyed the rest of dublin..
October 13, 2009 at 1:09 pm
In ireland rugby s a sport of one social class.
October 13, 2009 at 1:26 pm
rugby men are so hot. i really dont undesrtand the game totally, nor most commentators, but i love to watch. gosh, i love how short the shorts are. great shots.

Anonymous 11:41, provide a link to your photos if you're going to imply you could've done better. We'll be the judge.
October 13, 2009 at 2:00 pm
No. 3, statuesque. Pure art. Pure form. Thanks.
October 13, 2009 at 2:06 pm
I morn America's obession with football and wish we could have more rugby and soccer. They just seem to be more sport than football, and you can actually see the lovely men who play.
October 13, 2009 at 2:21 pm
You're a wonderful photographer. Thanks for inspiring!
October 13, 2009 at 2:27 pm
Well done Scott! We love rugby!
October 13, 2009 at 2:44 pm
Very enchanting to me!
October 13, 2009 at 2:49 pm
I really like the light! so warm, just like a low late fall sun in the early evening. I love this time of year!
October 13, 2009 at 2:52 pm
Cool… It shows that you are good photographer. I love pictures of sport and it is not always easy to shoot. Congratulations.
October 13, 2009 at 3:32 pm

October 13, 2009 at 4:04 pm
beautiful pictures…so atmospheric, and so refreshing to see. this is why your blog is so special.
Fashion&Such – trinity college and cambridge are different colleges in different countries.
October 13, 2009 at 4:08 pm
The last photo is absolute perfection, it should be the logo for the rugby federation or something
truly great pictures
October 13, 2009 at 4:09 pm
Off the topic picture? LOOVE ITHello, I found you blog on The Sartorialist, your blog is really Stunning, wow!
October 13, 2009 at 4:12 pm
" Fashion&Such said … (3:32 PM) : trinity college is in cambridge?love the photos still :)"
Nope – there's one in Dublin too :)
October 13, 2009 at 4:13 pm
i love these shots, their a bit different then your normal ones but still totally amazing! i expecially love the last shot, you can really feel the rugby players emotions as he's running, and he is in a cool sprint like pose, so cool!
October 13, 2009 at 4:21 pm
hot irish men playing sport…
playing my favorite sport
its like heaven.
Oh and in the second photo I love all the lines that go horizontally across the image. The rugby shirts, shadows and the goal post. I also love how the house looks like its tilted sideways.
October 13, 2009 at 4:48 pm
Mate, line outs is ballet in the air. Loved playing rugby, but playing American football is just as tough!
October 13, 2009 at 5:03 pm
LOVE THE IRELAND PHOTOS!
October 13, 2009 at 5:47 pm
I don't believe it – you've put rugby and style together! I can't stand rugby, having been saturated in it in New Zealand, but you've put it all in a different perspective. Wow! Maybe it's the stripes…

yumm ! I love Rugby !!!
October 13, 2009 at 6:52 pm
(Also, Trinity is in Cam but also in Dublin – the ones in Cam are vaguely hotter and posher but the ones in Dublin have waaay better chat.)
October 13, 2009 at 7:03 pm
I fell in love with a girl from Ireland. Unfortunately, it wasn't mutual. I love / hate Ireland.

Now you really are my favourite photographer!!! Rugby is my favourite sport!!! seeing it in your blog shot by you is amazing. Kudos to you Scott!
October 13, 2009 at 8:40 pm
Gorgeous light, colors, bodies. And the use of shadows! Ah, fleeting youth.
yea i must say.. they look like really sharp outfits. it doesnt hurt that their hot (esp. the redhead)
October 13, 2009 at 8:42 pm
Cool you managed to catch rugby practice in Trinity! I've lived on campus for a couple of years and this was one of the perks :) Your photographs captured their energy as well as their grace. Well done! (And I really like how you managed to use the unique slanting sunrays we get at this time of the year to such beautiful effects in your photos).
Finally, just want to add also that I second this brilliant comment, "gosh, i love how short the shorts are. great shots." :P

Scott,Sorry to have missed your book signing in Dublin (work called and I had to answer).Thank for posting these great pics…brings me back to my days at Trinity!Best,MT
October 14, 2009 at 4:08 am
Guys groping each other on a lawn? mwahahaha… No thanks. Despite being athletic, I detests such sports. I got my muscles from working construction sites, not chasing balls.
October 14, 2009 at 4:11 am
October 14, 2009 at 5:18 am
being a trinity student myself i had forgotten how hot those lads can be .. ha thanks for the reminder ill be sure to drop past the pitch later, hope you had a great time in my hometown xx
October 14, 2009 at 5:43 am
I love the contrast between the dynamic action on the rugby field and the elegance of the georgian mansions in the background.
October 14, 2009 at 5:58 am
Thanks for this…those thighs are a great start to my morning.
October 14, 2009 at 6:00 am

I love Trinity College, what a nice place to hang out! I miss Ireland…
October 14, 2009 at 8:24 am
We Brits (I'm N.Irish hence British not Irish exactly) love rugby, and rugby boys boys…. I have my very own 'tame' one at home. The Irish, and especially the Trinners guys are really good athletes too. The last shot is my favourite, the guy hoggin' the ball is rather scrum-ptious….scrum..get it? (sorry I had to say it, no one else had)
October 14, 2009 at 9:00 am
These shots show what a v. good photographer you are. One thing to take a shot of a beautiful person standing still, but shooting this kind of action and capturing the excitement is v. difficult.
Next stop, Sart the sports photographer. You'll need a new name :—)
October 14, 2009 at 9:40 am
These photo's remind me of something you would see from the 1950's or in a film like Dead Poet's Society. You have managed to capture the light and weather in Ireland in October perfectly.
This is my first time to comment on anything but I've been a fan for quite a while and your pictures really brighten up my day, so many thanks!
October 14, 2009 at 10:19 am
October 14, 2009 at 12:09 pm
The best part about the last photo is the sheer determination of the player with the ball, his face, his stance, juxtaposed with the look of defeat and posture of the guy next to him. Hilarious!
October 14, 2009 at 12:23 pm
Sigh. Rugby. Thighs like hams…and all those redheads.
October 14, 2009 at 12:30 pm

October 15, 2009 at 2:36 am
I can't stop staring at the hip/groin line peeking out from the top of runner's shorts in the last shot — reminds me of my husband. Hot.
October 15, 2009 at 4:40 am
From the photos I've seen of Trinity College, it really looks like a university I'd like to go to…
October 15, 2009 at 7:06 am

October 15, 2009 at 10:43 am

If the first game you ever played was rugby, it would be the only game you ever played. It's fantastic. And, fyi, this is rugby union.
