UVic came up with two, rather comprehensive victories over Ceedub, this past weekend.  The Norsemen shellacked The Ones, certainly the biggest hiding in distant memory.  Hopefully, in the New Year, the hackneyed; “it can only get better”, will actually apply.   The Premiers had the score at 7 –...

Excitement is in the rugby air as another CDI season kicks off.  The state of the CW Nation appears hale with 58 senior men registered.  These numbers are every bit as healthy as the past three seasons, yet it is a problem that the club is having to field two senior teams.  CW is struggling to...
