Two issues for me ... the captures and the processing.
Having been watching this subject / series with you give some perspective that is "atypical" of normal. I think it is important to understand a bit about the game/culture of rugby in order to appreciate these as much as one might.
That being said ... the captures reveal people that are consumed by that which they are engrossed in. That emotive isn't an easy thing to capture and present ... well done. The processing seems a bit of a mixture of "over the top HDR-ish" and grainy grunge. Likely, for most any other subject I'd not care for it at all. BUT ... KNOWING that this is RUGBY ... "over the top grunge" has a certain propriety that seems to "fit".
It takes some "getting used to" ... and as a 'regular' pic, most people would probably pass on it. But, I think that you have aspired to impart some of the spirit of the rugby culture into the message of the image ... and it comes through. Granted, it might get "lost" on most audiences, but I think it has a unique, yet somewhat quirky presentation that is both odd and invokes a curiosity that gives it a bit of a "push/pull" attribute.
As if that makes any sense.
