Not as bad as it looked
This looked like a nasty moment at the time, Greg was obviously in a lot of pain as he left the field on a stretcher, apparently it was just a back spasm/trapped nerve though and he's OK. Good news, I've been out for a beer in his company and he's a good bloke.
Later in the game the photographer sitting next to me lost his Nikon 300 F2.8 and D2H to a tackle from a Thistle player, he'd put the camera mounted on his monopod at his feet as the player slid towards him and it took the full set of studs at speed - left the end of the lens jammed in the camera body. He was shooting for a national paper as a freelance - and didn't have insurance - OUCH
