In America, football sits at the throne of all sports. However, I would like to argue that there is another contact sport that is not only more physically demanding, but is also far more interesting to spectate and experience. Have you ever heard rugby?
Perhaps not, but yesterday I had the chance to photograph the Labor Day training session of the Montana State University Men’s Rugby Club (that’s right; these laddies don’t believe in days off), and I can assure you that the passion, the intensity, and the camaraderie of this sport is unparalleled.
Here are some of my most favorite photos from their practice. I hope you enjoy them.
