Trophies

I was up in Brisbane at the weekend, the purpose of this escapade was to catch some live rugby action on Saturday night! Australia (aka the Wallabies) beat South Africa (aka the Springboks) 21-6 but South Africa having won the two previous encounters this year were awarded the Nelson Mandela trophy (on the left) and the Boks are likely to get hold of the Tri Nations trophy (on the right) should they beat New Zealand (aka the All Blacks) next Saturday in Hamilton (NZ). If only the Wallabies had played earlier in the competition the way they did on Saturday, the silverware would be found at the Australia Rugby Union headquarters!

Seems we are running hot and cold in a number of sports at the moment. Success tends to go in cycles ...

This might sound corny but I'll say it anyway.. you can't win all the time :) As for the Wallabies it was great to see them bounce back after a few defeats...

Love this shot, especially the line markings in the background. Everything's so crisp and clean - and even though we didn't win the trophies, we won the match!
