Eh? Tips? This will be rugby and I'll be down on the field with them. I have an SLR with zoom lens.
Motor drives are your friend when shooting sports. Another trick is to try and anticipate where the action is going and prefocus your camera to that spot. The best shots are sometimes those that take place after a play. Shoot lots of close up's, wide shots don't show emotion. Finally, shoot lots and lots of film. Don't go cheap. Many NFL sports photogs will shoot 10-15 rolls per half!
motor drive is must
I won't go as far to say that a motordrive is a must. I shot sports for three years without one. A motordrive certainly makes it easier to get good shots as the likelyhood of capturing just the right moment increases when you use a motordrive. Anticipating the moment of peak action is the real trick to shooting good sports....that and some good luck thrown in from time to time.
