BARKWILL HOISTS THE SPOILS! Although Ruck and Maul is taking a summer hiatus, there a few items of interest that have met the eye recently.  First and foremost, the Seattle Seawolves (7 – 2) claiming the initial MLR trophy in a come-from-behind victory over the Glendale Raptors (8 – 1) in...

Our Man in New Zealand

Our Man in New Zealand

Had word recently from CW’s, Jordan Ford, giving it a go in Canterbury.  Jordan had the first half of the season at the House of Windsor but as many young men are wont to do, packed his bags and headed to the Mecca of Rugby Football – N.Z.  Jordan has picked up with Timaru and from his report,...

PUTTING THE SEASON TO BED   This writer has to thank all those who dressed for the Men’s Prems this season for a job well done.  One firstly thinks of the multiple-season stalwarts, Braddock, Thornber, Heppy and Ollie and a few others with not as much seniority.  Then one reflects on the likes...

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...

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...


VALE - Don Burgess

VALE - Don Burgess

In recent days much has been written in a variety of sources about the life of Don Burgess.  ‘Burge’ was in many ways, a rugby Renaissance Man – one ahead of his time.  Nearly everyone who has responded to the loss of Don, has referred to the values and qualities of Don, the man.  Anyone who...

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...

2017 IN REVIEW

2017 IN REVIEW

  It would be most inaccurate and unfair of CW to lay any more claim than that of choice to Julia Zussman and Ray Barkwill. Both players learned the game elsewhere however, having been chosen as the most recent club for them to hang their hats, we are totally proud of their honours earned...
