The Bigs K.O. Saturday for CW

CW Men take their Premier and Reserve teams on the road to challenge Seattle at Magnussen Park tomorrow. By some quirk of scheduling, CW has drawn away games in succession to the Sarries, perhaps a mistake but one which costs CW some added $$ despite players paying for overnight...

Unfortunately, this occured on eight occasions in Rosario on the weekend! Bienvenido, lo que es un abismo!  Yes, chasm rather than a mere gap. Canada NSMT suffered a rather embarrassing 54 – 21 loss to Argentina on the weekend.  Just what level of representative player it was representing...

On Saturday CW Women faced off against Seattle for the second week in a row.  Seattle had already put in a full day, leaving home early for a 1:00p.m. k.o.  The issue of travel for Island teams to Seattle and vice versa does not have an easy solution. The game was very early when Zussman made...

Official Club Photographer It takes numerous volunteers to keep a rugby club on the go.  Ron Willems, our club photographer, was raised to the role of “official” when a local ref demanded his presence “outside the ropes”.  We thought we would give Ron “official” status with his...

The Chaplain brings news of a good outing by The Mighty Thurds in the Hub City this past Sabbath.  It was loss #2 but a close battle. Perhaps poor handling was a causal factor but plenty of positives from the exercise. With the “Saskatoonies” (Siz and Coop) and Queenie making their season...
