Sunday in my City: Suburban Warriors

Visit any suburban sports field in Sydney on a Sunday and you're sure to find some action.  I now have deep respect for sports photographers.  In my first attempt at sports photography many, many photos were taken and most were deleted.

The winner of this Rugby League match was the team in green and white, which is my local team (yay team!)
Four against one and he is still going.

If I look fierce you might miss the tackle.

Who cares about the main game when you can have your own battle on the sideline?

I overheard the kids discussing how they thought they were good enough to tackle the adults in the main game.

    But who is the man in back, 1st image - is he on tv screen? A coach? :)
