Rugby in Namibia

Like with most team-sports like rugby, there are a number of factors to consider when photographing rugby. A strong telephoto lens of at least 400mm is essential. Other lenses in the 70-200mm range can be used when the play comes closer as well as for crowd shots. In order to "freeze" the motion, a reasonably fast lens is necessary, the faster the better. It also helps if you can use a camera with a fast continuous burst mode in order to capture the right moment.
