It’s appropriate that I should write this post from the sidelines of Allianz Stadium as I await the kickoff to the Waratahs v Cheetahs game thats about to commence. It’s where I made this photo of Paddy Ryan scoring his maiden try in Super Rugby.

While technically, it’s probably not my best sports photography image, it was a turning point in the game – something that I’m always striving to capture. Emotions on players faces always makes for a great shot and this surely has that.

Hand on the ball and the ball over the line, there’s no doubting in his mind that it’s a try and hopefully one of many more to come it Ryan’s career.

Now, better go get my bib!
