Netrugby

Another addition to my series on alternative sports in London - Netrugby.  The game has been around since the Boer War at the beginning of last century. Although it's name suggest a cross between netball and rugby it seems to have a lot in common with American football. Players can pass the ball forward as well as back, tackle each other from any direction and score by throwing the ball into a large net suspended on either end of the pitch. It is definitely one of the most exhausting sports I've photographed so far, with each half lasting 30 minutes and hardly any let ups in intensity.
