The Emotion of Sport
Twickenham Stoop hosted its first Inter Service Rugby Union match on Friday 20 April when the Royal Navy played the Royal Air Force in the second round of the 2018 Championship. It was a risk for both Unions, moving the game to a bigger venue, but the risk paid off. A great afternoon and evening of rugby culminated in one of the most thrilling matches in recent Service rugby history. The fact that the RAF won the game to win the championship in their 100th year only added to the occasion.
Alligin Photography has always been interested in and invested in capturing the emotion of sport through great images. This selection are all from Andrew Fosker of Seconds Left Images Andrew has worked alongside Alligin Photography on a number of occasions and always delivers the results required. A game going into evening played with a setting sun always gives some added scope to explore light, the staple of any photograpgher.
We will be releasing more images of the action and also some of the off field atmosphere but for our first offering I think Andrew's portfolio showcases what a great event the first IS matc hat the Stoop was.
