Rugby Pairs

Plenty of opportunities for great action shots while watching the Rugby 7s and being near the front meant no photo bombing heads to avoid from the rows in front.

Coincidentally Kenya feature in both of these shots - playing New Zealand (left) and Portugal. I was amazed at how high they jumped/lifted in the lineouts and the speed at which they got up and off again after being on the ground - that's athletic fitness for you!

Enjoying all the pairs you are all sharing and the range of interpretations.
