Fun in the mud

FUJIFILM X-S1 1/340 second F/5.6 ISO 200 78 mm

A few shots this week that are a bit abstract or different.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Great muddy shot Ant, it brings back some memories of aching limbs, mud washing off in warm showers and then a few beers with great friends after !

@Doug: The beers with friends and Opposition after the game was always a part of Rugby here in Germany (I think that´s world wide) but here in Bielefeld we are really getting the families involved in the Club as well which is a huge step Forward.

They look as though they could be training for the bog snorkelling championships

@grouser: It had rained for a week and a half before this game and our pitch has no drainage at all as the soil is almost all clay...

Ludovic Roudet from Charenton-le-Pont, France

Superb catch in-the-move.

Oh dear - they do get down and dirty!

@Ruthiebear: After heavy rain our pitch always turns into a mudbath.

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

The second row looks more like a back with his clean jersey!):-

@Ted: At the end of the game you could hardly tell which Team was which,backs or Forwards.Our pitch does nor like rain and it had poured down for over a week before this game.The ref said it was OK to Play and the lads had a great time.
