"Mud wrestling" and "Rugby" are synonyms. Sometimes more mud, sometimes less. Same "game"...

Nice captures, Arpe. I suggest that you water the grass if it hasn't rained. The mud definitely adds to the images.

Nice one Arpe. In the first shot you really see how much water there is. Good to have a weather sealed camera.

Yeah, even though I had a bag over the camera and lens (Sigma lens) the camera still gets quite wet on the back, it's great not to have to worry about it.

Scott - it gets pretty cold on the sidelines, those guys are probably warmer than me!

That particular ground is always muddy, so I knew what I was in for.
