Sorry but it's another rugger shot...
Tackled by Nigel Hayes, on Flickr
Great shot! If it had been less tight you could perhaps have rotated it and lost the van. Usually I hate tilted shots but for action they can add drana.
I like it, although the van and fence/gate is a bit distracting. Must have been early in the game, no mud or blood.
I think it is good as it is, but the van is a real pity. If you use in to out cropping, I don't think you get further than square before you start to question if you need to go further. The story is all there:
A modern penalty ? No evidence that the tackler's arms are 'wrapping' the tackled and the tacklers shoulder is well above ball height with the heads perilously close.
I'd better be quiet - I'm talking myself into a yellow card!!!!
Penalty only. The ball carrier is falling so mitigating circumstances on height and probably intent too.
I suspected the van might be an issue, I'd already managed to eliminate a rather brightly coloured bicycle but hoped the dullness of the van might offset it's presence - clearly it doesn't...
I never thought of going in super-tight, was concentrating on keeping the players whole too much. Nice one Mike...
