Caps visit Windsor tomorrow with a bitter memory of last season’s sound 52 – 12 defeat, no doubt, still on the minds of those that played in the game. But as the header says….CW fielded a team that included; Buydens, Tiedeman, Jake Ilnicki, Kleeberger, Dingwall, Buckley, Monro and Northcott,...

  Plenty of weekend rugby, although not a whole lot to crow about from a Tricolor viewpoint. Saturday started with The Ones getting hammered by The Norsemen, 76 – 12, confirming an earlier expressed pov about just how challenging it will be this season for many club sides playing the...

  A pretty good crowd for a mid-weeker went home disappointed from Westhills Stadium last night when Canada lost to the U.S. by a score of 16 – 3. The contest was only ten minutes old when quick hands saw winger, Stanfill on the overlap, in for an easy tally. In the early exchanges,...

Under 18's Go 2 - 0.

CW U.18 team ( otherwise know as "the future" ) took their show on the road to challenge the mighty Burnaby Lake RFC. As with every occasion that these two clubs meet, the game was played in the true spirit of the game. The CW-ians, hit by injuries and illness, had several personnel and...

It didn’t take long on Saturday for UBC to make their mark at Windsor. Last year’s CW U18 captain, James Carson was the first to cross the line in the curtain-raiser. It then seemed like an open door policy had been adopted by the hosts as an endless parade of eight tallies proceeded, leaving...

On paper, the hosts appeared as underdogs but on the day, every player did his job, confidently and competently, providing a win of good value. The highlight was a team commitment to defense. CW opened the scoring with a penalty and the contest went twenty minutes before the first tally after...

If you were not a fan of the women’s game before this morning’s Canada Vs England, 13 – 13 tie, you most certainly would have changed your tune by game’s end. It was a classic battle between two fairly equal teams, with play ebbing and flowing from end to end. On the day, Canada was unlucky not...

  MoM, Jones, feeds DTH.....   Predicted here was the fact that the Eagles could be expected to show greater cohesiveness – prediction correct. It was a match that was entertaining enough but errors aplenty abounded. The Eagles could have been taken but if this was Canada’s best effort...

Saturday promises to be a barn-burner when the Eagles play The Maple Leafs. Perhaps a form line can be taken from recent scores vs the same opposition.  Let's look at this.  The Eagles lost to the Scots, 6 - 24 but pulled up their socks last week, narrowly losing to Japan 29 - 37, an eight...

 Almost 19,000 fans flocked to BMO Field to see if Canada’s NSMT could front up and dispel the doubts that crept in during the second stanza against Japan last week. During the week, the IRB had adjusted the global standings and Canada found itself sliding one place to Georgia. Short...

Burger ramapaging towards the try line! 1200 fans, a sun-drenched evening and a good game of rugby…all that was missing was a cold brew! Bedlinog, a Welsh 1st Division team, took to Windsor Park against the locals in their third game of a whirlwind Tour of Canada and Washington State. After...

The day was a magic one for rugby – sunny, firm surface, testing breezes, not to forget the “MacDonald Slope”. Fans were amassed in number and we must editorialize that it would be great to see such “home” support on a regular basis at Windsor. Two evenly matched teams promised to make this...

There are very few games in a season when an observer can be completely knackered just from "merely looking on" and so it was this past Saturday.  The writer can only imagine just how gutted the CW boys must have been post game.  Thanks to both teams for giving the contest your utmost and...

“Hard earned” was predicted and hard earned it was! For much of the day CW was out of synch and a determined Loma provided testy opposition. It looked like it might be easy when Mike Fuli almost “waltzed in” on the first attack but he stepped out of bounds. A seeming, almost complacency and...
