The Ones Play Spoiler

The Ones Play Spoiler

Posted in B.C. Rugby / CW Rugby / Fifteens / Men's Reserve Div

There was no sympathy offered by The Ones to UVic last Saturday, injury plight or not! Perhaps the final result did give a measure of revenge from a severe beating by the Norse back in November. The early stages ebbed and flowed but at the 25 minute mark, Henderson ran a tight line and fed...

Most unfortunately, we will not see all of our grads in action on Saturday at Windsor. The biggest disappointment will be in the FRF where Thornber is injured and Bos is being kept out for the upcoming U20 RWC. Further, UVic is reported to be sporting a number of injuries. Last time these two...

Saturday last saw the season’s biggest crowd assembled to witness the season’s best display from The Prems – a comprehensive victory over Capilanos, by a score of 52 – 12. From the kickoff, Horton grubbered a loose ball from the ruck to score wide out. From the ensuing kickoff, Armstrong...

Apologies to followers of this site for an International Time boner! Canada had some great highs at Tokyo and some frustrating lows, not the least being injuries to Dala, Hearn and Hiriyama, a yellow card to Harry Jones and a disallowed try to John Moonlight. This writer unfortunately, only...

Tomorrow's action promises to be fast and furious when the Capilanos visit Windsor Park. The First Div game is an "unknown" although the locals will field a couple of lads who suited up with Prems Vs Burnaby, certain to stiffen the side.  Caps are flying high, sitting in third place in the race...

Saturday brings a feast of rugby to CW fans,  At 1:00 p.m. at The Park, The Ones k.o. Vs high-flying Caps I's.  At best, Ceedub can play a spoiler role as the chances of a final four berth are almost mathematically off the cards.  Prems should be a beaut as two fairly equal squads match up in...

By k.o. time the rain was really living up to its prediction!  That being said, hats off to Burnaby for a pitch that was in good nick under such atrocious conditions.  There was good early engagement and commitment from both teams, Dolesau being particularly tightly marked. At the ten minute...

VRC started with great élan, their forwards showing intent not to stand down from a more vaunted pack.  At the first set, perhaps a portent of things to come, saw one of the front row players on the floor.  In fact, CW’s FRF, mostly “International” by birth only, with Jake Ilnicki having a cap...

This one was a mere three minutes old when Rower’s #10, Recinos, spotted an opening down the blind side and showed a clean pair of heels on his 60m run to the try line.  Rowers were good value and added another for a 12 – 0 lead, somewhat deflating the CW lads.  At the fifteen minute mark,...

With a sack the size of this, we hope that Santa has some goodies for CW!  Apart from the U16's Provincial Title, the Fall represented rather slim pickings for The Tricolor. We hope it also contains a good recovery for NSMT Sevens, off to Vegas on January, 24 - 26.  With some "home town"...

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 –...
