A documentary narrative exploring the hierarchy and male dominance specifically within the Bath Spa Rugby University Society. Documenting my intrusion on privative boisterous moments, touching on the matter of alcohol consumption alongside capturing opposing, dynamic, intimate action shots of their exhilarating, testosterone fueled, rough rugby matches. Relentlessly they implement strict traditional laws as games that distinguish authority over one another, which when combined with alcohol, the pecking order becomes ever more blatant. The project also acts as a self-portrait whereby I explore my unfulfilled hunger to partake within sport, which is hindered by suffering with a spinal condition known as Scoliosis. My participation through the lens is an alternative involvement within the game.
