Having assumed a full team of event photographers would be covering the festival (and that no in-game photography would be permitted), I hadn't taken my match kit and planned to enjoy the festival purely as a spectator/dad, hoping to buy a few photos from the event photographer after the festival.

I only had a single camera body and 2 short lenses in the car so, unfortunately, could only capture some of the action close to the try line.

As I wasn't shooting commercially, please feel free to download any photos from this gallery without charge. Hopefully, next year I can cover the matches properly and feature more of the players.

To download photos, please click on the image(s) you would like and and select the 'Download' option from the 'Menu' button.

To choose multiple photos, simply click on the 'Select Photos' link at the top of the page and then check the images you would like to download.

If you could tag @nickbimages in any usage on Instagram, Twitter or FaceBook, it would be greatly appreciated!
