The Ones Break Their Goose Egg

A moment to Remember was taken prior to kick off when Nanaimo Hornets visit to Windsor provided a small salve for Ceedub Ones on Saturday.  In a very well played, enjoyable to watch and close match, the Tricolors eked out a 24 - 17 win.  The teams traded tries in the early going and it was right...

A brief Hornet History 101!  Being a Founding Father of the rejuvinated (1968), version of the Hornets, The Ruggernut actually has some credibility in reporting this story!  Nanaimo Hornets (originally, The Rovers), were instituted in 1888 when the Free Press reports; “The match between the...

  Saturday at Windsor saw no joy in Mudville, with the season’s best home crowd leaving the park somewhat frustrated after watching the boys leave competition points on the plate, dropping a 5 – 7 decision to The Ravens.   The Raven opened with pressure and posted first points after an...

Looking for the game?  We were too!  The Canada Vs N.Z. Maori match will be aired live on Ch #5 and #225 (HD), TOMORROW  at 10:00 a.m.  Rugby Canada has used its perogative of NOT announcing the lineup until tomorrow as this is not a certified "International Test"!  One wonders what difference...

A feast of rugby takes place tomorrow.  It all starts at 10:00 a.m. PST when Canada plays NZ Maori in Toronto.  Unfortunately, at this late stage, we are still unable to procure a starting XV for the Maple Leafs but we know for sure there will be some Tricolor connections involved.  We wish...

Visiting Burnaby Lake had lots to prove to themselves, rather than the locally assembled sparse crowd, including a large visiting contingent. There was a time when the House of Windsor was an afeared venue.  This certainly has not been the case the past two weekends.  In the curtain raiser...

Unsung Hero - Off The Field

Some 25+ years ago, the Vancouver Island Refs Society insisted (via way of a club fine), that clubs rope their fields - an innovation at the time.  This reminisce brings us to John Morley!  John started his rugby as a "late starter", around twenty, in the U.K.  He was a spare for his soccer...
