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...


High Hopes - Dashed!

High Hopes - Dashed!

Saturday in Vancouver produced miserable weather when CW fronted at the Prince of Wales H.S. to play the Loma in the Reserves Semi.  The somewhat rustic conditions, the boys having to change in the bus, a Port-A-Potty so far away that players had to urinate behind a building, reminding the...


Hatrick of Playoff Performances

Hatrick of Playoff Performances

All three CW teams find themselves in semis action on Saturday.  Unfortunately, a supporter’s bus to Vancouver concept, fell through.  We would hope that our women are the beneficiaries with strong sideline support at Juan de Fuca when they kick off against Westshore at 2:30 p.m.  The men...

....And Then There Were Four!

OMG....Shut the front door! Heartiest congratulations to CW Men and Women Premier teams, both qualifying for the final four.  The Men turned the tables on UVic with a 45 – 37 win and the women had a fantastic victory over Burnaby, 53 – 29 on Saturday.  Indeed, CW is one of two club sides...

Playoff Prognostications

Playoff Prognostications

  CW Men go into three weekend playoff matches.  The Islanders (VIRU – Div2) travel to the mainland to play Meralomas.  This is a tough result to predict as The Tricolours have not named their selection and the strength of the Lomas is unknown.  I suppose, given the inconsistency of...

My period of mourning has passed and I will attempt to make some sense of the action last Saturday, with today’s musings, although there is nothing too amusing about them!  Both CW teams gifted the last seventeen points of their games to the visiting students!  The Reserves started out where...

Canada (and CW) Commonwealth Games History

The show was very young when Canada opened the scoring against South Africa, Caroline Crossley crossing for the first ever try in the inaugural Women’s Sevens. They went on to “bagel” RSA, 29 – 0.  Their second match, saw a somewhat unheralded, Kenya give them stiffer opposition with the...

The Little Master in action   Our game report labelled Gus Boyd-Porter as “The Little Master”.  Indeed, an honour.  Clive Churchill, the original and still, one and only, played rugby league for South Sydney Rabbitohs in the 50’s.  Sydney’s southern suburbs were a tough place to reside...

The recent announcement by R.C. of its approach to RWC qualification has become a hullabaloo of controversy amongst B.C. rugby fans.  Samantha Shorter, President of BCRU, recently replied with an open letter to RC, a letter which articulately expressed a B.C. viewpoint, a position which...

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...
