Chris Wilson - Top 3
Here are three that I like, one for the pure emotion and joy of scoring, with Kyle Baillie scoring the first try.
The second is Ciaran Hearn lining up the kick and the focus on the ball.
The third is Doug (Fraser) as I know him a little. Doug being a local guy and all the hard work he has put into getting where he is now.
Editor - Top 3
I chose a sequence of Will Percillier making a line break. Sequence shots are more difficult, you have to keep the subject in the frame over a period of time. They tell more of a story over time. The first is Will seeing the gap with the entire front row looking on, he's focused on making it through. The second shot shows hope, his head is up, the goal line is within reach. The third shows a change of plan, something has changed, a defender came within view, a slight ankle tap on the previous frame.
