G’day Sports Fans! So I tried my hand at something a little different this weekend. The guys at Gridiron NSW (gridironnsw.org.au) asked me to cover a couple of their matches over the weekend. Being a fan on the NFL and American sports in general, I was more than happy to give it a go.
I covered the two games out at Forrestville Oval for Round 2 of the Gridiron NSW. Starting off with Newcastle Cobras vs UTS Gators game. Followed by the North Sydney Rebels vs Sutherland Seahawks game. The weather was far from ideal with dark clouds and scattered rain across both games, the field turned from grass to mud within the first quarter of the first game. However it was great atmosphere and really great to see American style football in person. Although the conditions made it tricky to photograph, I really enjoyed myself.
I’ve put together just a few of my favourite shots below. You will be able to find a few more of my shots from the weekend on the Gridiron NSW website (gridironnsw.org.au) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/GridironNSW.Inc). It’s also the place to go to find out more about Gridiron in Australia, the upcoming games and where to find your local team.

I wont get a chance to get out to games for the next couple of weeks, I’ve got a quiet a bit on over the next several weeks. I’ll definitely be on the sideline of future Gridiron games.
Well that’s the end of this weekend photos. If you’ve spotted one of my photos you’ve really liked, make sure you get in touch with me if you’d like to use it.
