Tate on the counter..... We must kickoff today with a reminder to all readers of this site that it is a blog with a CW bent but not authorized opinions from the Club’s Executive.  With this lead-in, The Ruggernut must offer an apology for any aspersions cast in yesterday’s game reports...


Prems Key Win in Seattle

Prems Key Win in Seattle

The boys now sit firmly ensconsed in third place with two tough finishes against UBC and UVic., after a weekend that produced some topsy-turvy outcomes in the league, all to form, but mammoth scores.  Seattle went out to a quick 18 - 0 lead and CW fought back to finally get ahead by a...


Dust 'Em Off!

Dust 'Em Off!

Dust off the golf clubs and put yourself and foresome into this picture!  Simple, with a bid on one of a number of golf packages at local clubs, on the block at the auction at our upcoming Dinner and Fundraiser held this year at Victoria's Union Club.  Time marches on. Book your...


Four on the Road

Four on the Road

Ceedub faces the burden of travel this weekend as all four senior teams face crucial matchups as the road to the playoffs escalates.  The women travel to Capilanos to face the second placed team.  An upset victory could put them in the driver’s seat, playoff-bound.  Last time the teams met...

WOMEN WALLOP SARRIES Picked up this score line today, CW 80 Vs Seattle 10.  This puts CW just one point behind Seattle and the hopes of making the final four are one step closer.  You beauties!  Capilano (A), Seattle and Burnaby (H) to go, there is a chance. Whilst with mammoth scores...


Veritable Track Meets

Veritable Track Meets

CW’s Reserves (“Divvies” as the boys like to say), opened a commendable lead at the half in Nanaimo, Saturday. (22 – 12).  This pundit picked up the action at this stage.  Must admit, it was good to be one of a dozen of ‘the Faithful’ amongst a sizeable and knowledgeable (with no boorish...

Resources Stretched Thin

Resources Stretched Thin

With four senior teams on the road this weekend, player resources have been stretched to the max and fortitude will be required if victories are to be secured.  Firstly, our Premier Women are off to Bellingham to play Seattle.  The women had a quality win over the Sarries a couple of weeks...

Wednesday's Ruck & Maul

IN MEMORIUM:  Connor Braid proudly wore and displayed the name of his good mate, Dylan ‘Diesel’ Jones whenever he scored a try at last weekend’s Sevens.  Dylan’s passing last year, came as a shock to all of us at CW and his many friends outside of rugby circles.  Connor’s display of his...

VANCOUVER SEVENS:  Canada gave it a good show on day#1 only to be beaten up rather handily by Scotland and Samoa on day #2 - an unfortunate ending for the hosts in an event that currently is amongst the premier locations on the circuit.  It is not lack of desire but the difference between...

Banner Day for Westshore – Diem Horribilis for CW!

Banner Day for Westshore – Diem Horribilis for CW!

The weather obliged for Westshore and CW on Saturday to make the occasion a great rugby day.  Great it was for the Hosts, winning all four matches in fairly convincing fashion.  The Westshore supporters group has grown and they were out in good force to support their men and women. The First...


Westshore Quadfecta – Local Derby

Westshore Quadfecta – Local Derby

Westshore Rugby perhaps may not have sorted their name out fully as yet, following their successful migration from Gordon Head.  We have read game reports that have described the club as Westshore RFC and Westshore Valhallians, a moniker they have not completely shaken.  Oh, well, we at CW...


Hosts Take a Squeaker

Hosts Take a Squeaker

Pullin reeled in on this occasion.   CW Women flexed their muscles yesterday, defeating Seattle 86 – 7.  Not to blow their horn with this mammoth total, for they too have been on the receiving end of such a hiding but indeed, it did show what a difference a couple of players can sometimes...


An Opportunity for Redemption

An Opportunity for Redemption

  This Saturday, the Reserves will play the curtain-raiser at Windsor at 1:00 p.m.  Burnaby lead the competition ladder, scoring a mammoth 502 points.  Last time round, there was a thirty point differential between the teams.  The Home venue will make a difference but the Lakers are a...

  Weather last weekend made for some pretty rugged matches.  CW’s Premier Women took it on the chin at Carnarvon Park against a very good Burnaby side.  One observer remarked the Burnaby women reminded him of their strong teams of some five seasons ago and they played a game that would...

Lomas Loom Large

Two BIG games for our Premier teams tomorrow.  Women are at home to a Burnaby team that knocked off Caps at their last outing and will be gunning for the "W" to open some competition table “room” between themselves and CW.  Burnaby will be travelling with a full contingent and stock full...

The Magician finds something amusing! This pundit was doing too much grieving to be doing any musing on Monday last!  Last weekend was yet another tedious experience for any Canadian rugby fan.  There were many aspects of the game against the U.S. that may have been deemed as improvements...

  It took the game day video to more closely observe the play of Clay ‘Burger’ Thornber from last Saturday.  This writer wishes to add plaudits to the Burger who was involved with almost as much grunt work as Finnemore, Hard Hat earner on the day.  As denoted on this site some time back, Clay...

Local Derby – A Double to CW It was a dismal afternoon that bore witness to Saturday’s contests at MacDonald Park.  CW’s Reserves (Divvies) got the scoring underway early and the boys stretched it to 17 – 3 at the interval.  This pundit picked up the action in the second stanza with CW...

TRY!  Moose and Mack not in this week's picture! As of now, it's "game on" tomorrow at the Mac.  1:00 p.m. and 2:30 for the men's matches. CW Reserves (aka Divvies) will field a strong side as they seek to pick up where they left off last week at Windsor.  The Tricolour has a single...
