Calcutta Cup

So, somehow I won myself a day with Marc Aspland of The Times, at Twickenham to shoot the Calcutt Cup. I took the job seriously and tried to deliver a professional set of photos within 1 hour of the end of the game. To be honest, I've tweaked them a little since coming home but this is the result.

A party atmosphere:

Fox on the pitch during the national anthem.

On with the Rugby. Scotland may not have won but they made a spirited effort.

A nasty attack by Matt Banahan took Kelly Brown off the pitch on a stretcher and neck brace.

But in the end, the English machine was unstoppable...

And finally, a shot of Marc and I, just to prove I was there...

Many thanks to Marc Aspland of The Times.

Thanks also to:

  • Maidenhead Camera Club.
  • Lenses for Hire for the 400mm f/2.8 used in most of the shots.
