most teams start with all hands on the ball – in this case Fiji, who won the tournament
then it is all action - with only 7 minutes in each half, rugby 7s is a fast game with lots of running with the ball
[Scotland against Portugal]
[Samoa against NZ]
[and Australia against Russia]
and some more great lineout jumps
[Scotland against Canada]
but sometimes the jumpers don’t get the ball
[USA and Fiji]
and kicks to convert a try
Having front row seats in a smaller stadium with some sunshine really did make it easier to take good shots – in bigger stadium my camera is on full zoom and I’m at a higher angle and night games mean floodlights - which all change the kind of photos that are possible.
I also had a good number of blurred shots, and some that miss the action but I’m pleased with 10 good action shots.
