My first sports photography assignment – The Toronto Wolfpack

Followers of this blog will know that for the past few weeks I have been taking pictures of the Toronto Wolfpack rugby league team's matches at Lamport Stadium.

Toronto Wolfpack vs All Golds

This weekend saw the unbeaten Toronto Wolfpack take on the Gloucester All Golds, the only professional rugby league team owned by a British university. Unfortunately for the All Golds they weren't able to halt Toronto's inexorable march to the Championship, but they played well and showed bags of spirit on a very warm Canadian summer… Continue reading Toronto Wolfpack vs All Golds
