Awesome that most of our pool games are on a Saturday :)
Should be a very interesting tournament, I'm thinking a Northern hemisphere team will take it this year (Wales/England/Ireland)

Wow, nicely selection. That's going to be one heck of a trip.

I'm over there until the 23rd but unfortunately I'm at a wedding on the 19th :/

Yeah, it should be fun, especially if I can get some more clients to help pay for the trip!

I only added the Leicester matches because I've still got plenty of friend and family in the area… and five days to kill. :)

Who are your clients for this kind of work?

Ideally wire services - Getty, AFP, AP, etc… but sponsors are another option. Worse comes to worse I'll set up a site and sell editorial images that way.

Ah okay. So are you actually freelancing - take pictures and people pick the ones they want from what you have available?

Looks like SA and NZ have the easier pools ;)
Pool A :wtf: and Pool D - shame :twisted:

We might actually reach the quarters with our bunch of geriatrics.

Pool A is a bitch. Runners up meet us in the quarters. By then they'll be spent.

Yip Pool A seems to be the toughest one.
Other groups should see the favorites go thru.

Waisake Naholo out of World Cup with broken leg

https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/spo...f-world-cup-contention-with-broken-leg-q02127

Naholo broke a bone on debut for the All Blacks last night against Argentina in Christchurch.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen had intended on taking the Fijian winger to South Africa but has been forced to make a change.
"The only one that’s changed is Waisake because he has a broken, well, cracked bone... so he’s going to be out for three months which now means he’s going to miss the World Cup which is pretty disappointing for him and us."

He made a solid start to his Test career before sustaining the injury in the 57th minute when he was tossed across the sideline.

We are all a bit shocked,"
- All Blacks coach Steve Hansen

"He was weight-bearing on it and pretty good.

"But we got back here (team hotel) last night and it was really sore so Doc thought we should get him scanned. And in the scan they found a crack in it. There is no displacement so that is good but if we can get him right and we need an outside back replacement he will be fit and ready to go by mid-October."

The 24-year-old Naholo was unwanted by the Blues but had an outstanding season for the Highlanders this year and was rewarded by being named in the All Blacks squad late June.

The All Blacks will name their World Cup squad on August 31.

In 2011 Fiji-born Naholo was selected New Zealand under-20 side for the Junior World Championship, and the following year picked in the All Blacks Sevens squad.

Naholo played in every match for Taranaki in 2014, scoring nine tries in the competition and was a key player in helping his side clinch the ITM Cup national title.

Watch this space for an exciting MyBB RWC competition... not a simple pick the winner or guess the score type of competition.


And yes, there will be some great prizes!
