Women's Rugby

  This past Saturday I was able to shoot some women's rugby.  Now r)ugby is a tough sport to play and I give these ladies all the credit in the world for getting out there and playing.

I've been covering the Belmont Shores women's rugby team for a couple of years now and heard they were having a game at Cal State Long Beach.  So as I normally do I arrived early and I'm glad I did as I saw that Cal State Long Beach has started a women's rugby team and they were having a practice game against USC.  Now from what I understand USC didn't have their jerseys so they borrowed jersey's from CSLB (White jersey's).  I made contact with the coach, who used to coach and play for the Belmont Shores team and hopefully I'll get prior notice to future games so I can come out and shoot.

The first few shots are from the CSLB vs USC game.

This next set of shots is from the Belmont Shores game as they played against the Seattle Breakers.  Belmont had a rough game with the breakers and only had a couple of drives towards the end zone, making it a hard game to get them in action (more defensive).

Below you will find several shots from that game.

You definitely captured the "toughness" of these ladies. Excellent work as always. :)
