LEEEEROOOOYY

After three seasons and 89 appearances in the Blue, Black and White, fan favourite Leroy Houston is heading back to Super Rugby to further his chances of playing international rugby for the Wallabies.

An absolute gentleman and a cult hero among supporters, it’s been a pleasure taking photos of a man who gives everything on and off the field, and always with a smile on his face. Selecting the following twenty standout shots of his three action-packed seasons with Bath Rugby made me grin as much as the man himself…

Stuart Hooper

Very sad news today that Bath Rugby skipper Stuart Hooper has announced his injury-forced retirement from the game. Following 192 appearances in Blue, Black and White and five years as captain the tributes have been pouring in from all corners. Those who’ve played under and worked with him will attest to what an inspirational leader, role model and overall class act he’s been. Personally, I’ll let a few photos over the years do the talking…

Best of Rugby World Cup 2015

21 matches, 18 nations, 9 stadiums, 20 moments

It’s been a privilege to work at a Rugby World Cup in my own backyard. Two months of hard work, frustration, long nights and huge enjoyment. From one of the greatest sporting upsets at Brighton, the heartbreak of England’s dismal early exit from the competition, to the epic finale at Twickenham, the following twenty frames include some of my favourite shots from a tournament to remember…

Closing the pool stages

Canada v Romania

From prop Hubert Buydens’ lumberjack appearance, to Ray Barkwill’s great big bushy beard to the long flowing locks of eventual man of the match Jeff Hassler, it proved to be a hairy day for the Canadians, as Romania stunned them with a late fightback. The Oaks scored 17 points in the final 28 minutes as their powerful pack overcame Canada in the biggest comeback in World Cup history. Covering the men in red in both halves meant missing out on the Romanian’s tries but there were plenty of opportunities for photos after the final whistle, as the underdogs celebrated a memorable victory. Full set of images from the match

Skills, strength, jubilation and heartbreak

Tonga v Namibia

In front of a capacity crowd at Exeter’s Sandy Park, it was clear that neither side wanted a narrow, forward-orientated game, and the outcome was a thrilling clash, which Tonga eventually claimed, running out 35-21 winners. A first ever World Cup win still eludes Namibia, but they scored three tries in a match at the tournament for the first time and will take plenty of positives from the game. Full set of images from the match

Scotland v Japan

With Japan playing their second match in four days after the heroics of their stunning win against South Africa, fitness was always going to be an issue late in the match, and so it proved. The game turned when Japan suffered the cruel loss of the influential Amanaki Mafi to injury early in the second half, as Scotland turned the screw and ran in 45-10 winners.

Rugby World Cup opening weekend

England v Fiji

England were made to work hard by Fiji in their World Cup opener but pulled away in the last 20 minutes to secure a bonus-point win at Twickenham. Two tries from full-back Mike Brown and the impact from the bench saw Stuart Lancaster’s men home despite a disjointed display. Full set of images from the match
