    I feel for the players…the two teams' colours are almost indistinguishable.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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)

    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 :—)

    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!

    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!
