Day #69

Day #69Title: Lost In Contact
Location: Vicarage Road, Watford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 75-300mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: After losing three games on the trot, Saracens really needed a win at home to keep their league position healthy. Sale Sharks came visiting this week. Sarries were leading 21-7 at half time, the Sharks pulled back during the second half, but the final score stood at 24-20, finally breaking Saracens’ losing streak. It was an entertaining game, on the whole. Here, former French international Sebastien “Seabass” Chabal loses the ball after a hit from Glen Jackson. Sarries team mate Dan Scarborough is on hand to mop up the loose ball.

Day #27

Day #27Title: Penney Breaches The Defence
Location: Vicarage Road, Watford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / Canon 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS
Notes: Saracens had a good match against Bath, winning 26-20. You can see my match photos elsewhere, but this is one that nearly got away – Rodd Penney breaks through the Bath defensive line and heads for the gap. Lighting was a bit tricky with bright sun on one side of the pitch and deep shade my side. At least an early kickoff (1:30pm) meant there was some sun for a change!

Day #12

Day #12Title: Chesney’s Lineout
Location: Vicarage Road, Watford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / Canon 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS
Notes: Saturday afternoon at the rugby – traffic queues were a nightmare, but worth it for the 45-16 win against those pesky Basques, Biarritz. Heineken Cup Quarterfinals are one step nearer…
