Saturday, April 10 JAPAN RUGBY TOP LEAGUE, The most finale.
(There are a lot of English areas readers of my blog overwhelmingly, so I offer my blog in English from this week.)
JAPAN RUGBY TOP LEAGUE the holding is also postponed for more than 1 month by influence of new-style Corona, and which has started, finally, the 7th clause (the most finale). The order is fixed with this week’s game, and tournament will begin from next week, and a winning team decides.
Today’s game meeting place is Komazawa Olympic park overall playground. The stadium where I have the history constructed in case of Tokyo Olympic Games (in 1964) last time. When old National Stadium is demolished, and I think remodel has been just, there is something filled with deep emotion.
Though it’s a stadium with such history, it’s for the first time that I come here. What kind of stadium is it?
The nearest station gets off by Komazawadaigaku station in 3 station from Tokyu Denentoshi line Shibuya station in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, and it’s arrival in about 10 minutes on foot.
A really wonderful park. Big wide maintenance is attentive. When there is such park near the home, I’m happy.
When I follow people’s flow to the stadium, I have arrived at a meeting place.
The first impression seen from the bottom “They’re some ordinary fields.”. But, when I go upstairs, an impression changes completely.
Though it was made in 1960 ‘s, (It’s impolite?) The near future-like building. It’s that a vast square is in front of the field to raise the style of the field also. When I said the stadium which juxtapose a square like this, a HANAZONO rugby playground in Higashiosaka-city was imagined.
I had arrived 1 hour ago of Kick Off, so stands around the meeting place could be visited.
It’s a rugby jersey department that I have caught attention first. A jersey of RWC 2019 was sold. But it’s expensive. Too expensive. The replica by which the cost is about 20,000 yen is 14,000 yen. If I just look, it’s fun, but I can’t hold my hand out.
Next the booth of this confrontation team was being seen. Tent of public relations of HINO Red Dolphins.
Balls with player’s autograph signature were being sold. It’s the democratic price compared with a jersey of the dead stock a short while ago. A ball was sold out after a game. Red Dolphins is a team in neighborhood of the home, so when there is no Corona, you do fan Thanksgiving Day in spring. Regrettable.
This is today’s Starting Member stuck in front of the tent of Red Dolphins.
Then I’ll enter a stadium.
Today’s my seat, “southern stand Line 1 of S, number 151”.
I run, 1 line. This is lucky. It was the day, and I noticed. Because if it’s line 1 to take a picture when I say whether it’s lucky, it’s close and why isn’t there an obstacle?
Today was the ideal watch weather at the sky in sky blue which comes off (In addition to that the land truck was also blue and.)
Now, easy introduction of the both teams which play a game today.
RICOH BLACK RAMS:
About 5 during 8 teams when 2 win belongs to White Conference by 4 losses (World Cup point 9) current as of the RICOH Black Rams:.
The uniform is black as the team name indicates. There is a lot of foreign player from New Zealand as a name of Rams indicates. All except for an anti-Panasonic competition loses in a discounted game by a narrow margin. It’s persevering team color, isn’t it?
HINO RED DOLPHINS
About 7 during 8 teams when 1 win belongs to White Conference by 4 losses (A game of World Cup point is 7.) current as of the HINO Red Dolphins:. If it’s stable and is the game by which it rains, FW shows its character. When I say conversely, it’s lacking in the decisive power of the Backs.
About today’s game-.
The audience’s beginning of today was a confrontation between the lower rank teams of Conference, and 3000-about 4000. By the way, the biggest accommodation number of people of Komazawa athletic stadium is 20,010. The entering which is not completely satisfactory.
The game contents are near the order, Black Rams ruled a game mostly. It’s personal prejudice, but there are almost no cases that I judged a weak team from the team by which black Rugby Jersey is worn.
Of Black Rams where 4 tried the first half, it was a complete victory and was 24-0 and One Side Game mostly.
But 17-19 and Red Dolphins regained the second half. It was for a short while too late that the engine starts, wasn’t it? Because there is real ability which can be taken equally mostly for FW competition, I think there was a chance to win. The positive reaction person it’s in the team that it was unfortunate for Red Dolphins 1 week before, and who is new-style Corona, more than one, the thing which had to go out and replace a member (6 people?) much.
The last score: 41-19 (win of Black Rams)
＊＊ Postscript by the blogger ＊＊
The camera I got last week (CANON SX 420 IS) played an active part, but it was that I could sit down in line 1 of this time, and there was something I got personally by picture taking.
There was a professional cameraman in 1st line in the goal back fairly, and it was possible to see their photography.
A professional takes a decisive moment (scene of a try) from the goal back using a basic tripod and a super-telephoto lens, I take a picture while predicting the game contents.
When a player is approaching a goal, a basic superspeed ream is shot with a camera while chasing it. KASHAKASHA sound is noisy, isn’t it? The cameraman who was next to me while today’s my photography number was about 100, presumes, he was taking a picture of more than 500. This, because the tone of the cameraman’s machinery and materials is noisy, and the general audience couldn’t endure when he loses at a full stadium, so professional cameramans come to the empty goal back, don’t they?
A superspeed ream struck my camera of an amateur, and there were no functions, so 1 1 shutter was pushed. Of course, a decisive moment coudn’t be taken.
I learn on the way, too, and, using the animation function of the camera, when editing, it was thought of to take a static image out from an animation.
（The moment this is a try.）
Next when it’s made super-zooming when taking such sports picture, when it isn’t fixed by a tripod, a picture is blurred, and how can’t it be done? If it’ll be 60 times-70 times because it’s so by 42 times of telephoto lens, it’s impossible by the way to have it by hand and take a picture, isn’t it?
If a line of seat can be reserved next time, I think a small tripod is taken. A professional when he try to take all machinery and materials a cameraman has, he have to carry by private car, it can’t be brought in. The considerable weight.
A result of the game is predicted, and the cameraman who enters in the stadium and is taking a picture by the goal back is taking a picture of that he noticed also, isn’t he?
A basic dominance team stands by in the goal back which is being attacked, predicts development and shoots a high-speed ream. If it was in case of today, he was standing by on the side Black Rams is attacking. It’ll be movement on the other side in the second half. They don’t know what happens to a game. If the budget is abundant, the company which employs a cameraman would also arrange a cameraman on the other side.
I’d like to take a better picture next time.
Jersey collection 25
The 1st time of 1987 Second jersey of a French representative uniform in the time of RWC. Dirt is conspicuous white jersey, but the preservation state is also good. There are almost no cases that this second jersey was judged from auctions. I bought it at 7980 yen by Mercari, inc. If it’s 1st JERSEY personally, Blanco is imagined, but if it’s 2nd, Philip Sera is remembered.
