Saturday's a Rugby Day

A strong men's combination has been selected to face Rowers in the final league game of the season. Rowers went down to JBA last weekend with a score line of 12 – 48 and have to return to the Island again to face a team preparing their game for playoff action. The Rowers have been doing it...

SATURDAY'S SCOREBOARD PREMIER WOMEN UPSET AT KLAHANIE This was not a Cup Final but what must have been a very satisfying upset for our ladies, posting a 39 – 19 score over the home-team, Capilanos. Caps, in second place in a league which currently looks like, Westshore and the rest, must...


Men's Premier Reserves VIRU Times Cup Final

Men's Premier Reserves VIRU Times Cup Final

Mike Makaroff will lead his boys to the fray at UVic tomorrow morning at 11:15 a.m. in this one. On paper, it could be argued that it should not be close, as The Norsemen have really hit their straps of late. The UVic team includes CW Jr "Grads" Carter White, Callum Mastereton, Jonas...

Ollie Gets Throttled by CW Jr Grads, Carter White, Callum Masterton & Aiden Cole! It was another valiant but losing effort against Westshore Valhallians by our ladies on Saturday. The rivalry is bitter but the respect is great. Westshore won the contest 38 – 12 to remain undefeated...


BARNARD CUP CHAMPS REPEAT!

BARNARD CUP CHAMPS REPEAT!

Rain?? What rain? This fan arrived late for the altered start-time for the Divvies and for the first quarter it was close. CW edged to a 12 – 5 margin. Suddenly the switch was turned on and with sure hands assuring width of attack and superior pace the lads opened a 26 – 5 differential at...


To the Games

To the Games

For the ‘curtain-raiser’ this week our Men’s Divvies have posted one of their strongest selections in recent weeks despite some players being called for higher service. In the hopes of finishing with a flourish, we see a combination that finally gives Heppy a rest, Haydn Jenkins and Horton pair...


Here's Your Docket!

They Came; They Conquered!

  Tally Time! It wasn’t all disappointing news on Saturday, the CW Women Prems managed to defeat Burnaby, 39 – 17 for a promising start to the afternoon. The match was only two minutes old when CW broke from their own end and Bazian finished with opening points. Burnaby...


SUCCESSFUL SELECTION RETAINED

SUCCESSFUL SELECTION RETAINED

    Coach Manning has rewarded the fine play of last week's starting XV Vs Westshore, making just one change, that being the return of Dustin Dobravsky, to face Burnaby tomorrow at 2:45 k.o., Sponarski, Hohert, Kegode, Morris and Hall being beneficiaries of their efforts. This makes way for...

BIG NIGHT Under Lights

BIG NIGHT Under Lights

CW took a pair off Westshore last night at Juan de Fuca. Just comparing the training and playing conditions as attested by the lighting facilities for the two clubs places CW in the ‘Spartan’ category and provides a definite home field advantage but on this night that was not to be. Despite...

Wednesday's Ruck & Maul

Owing to the inclement weather of recent weeks, CW finds itself in a very rare, midweek encounter.  In order to enable Westshore to complete their season schedule, the chaps will front up for two matches tomorrow night.  The Reserves play at 6:15 and the Prems will kick off at 7:45 at Jaun...

"D.J." Back in the Fold

"D.J." Back in the Fold

CW Rugby had to search long and deep to find a picture of DJ Sears-Duru in action. We go back some six years when DJ first came to the west coast as a touted junior prospect with a national team future. Djustice played 2 – 3 seasons with the Tricolours before this prediction came to fruition....


Three for the Road

Three for the Road

CW Pilfers A Pair At The Mac

CW Pilfers A Pair At The Mac

The Skipper in full flight! CW Reserves made a rollicking start with seven or eight phases early, resulting in a try to the Captain, Makaroff and matters looked well in hand but we all know the game lasts for eighty and the Divvies were about to be exposed with some short-comings. James...

Locked & Loaded!

Maybe tomorrow might come to pass that the chaps can get back on the park. Today’s weather appears to be trying to belie that hope, stay tuned. For the Premier Men tomorrow at The Mac will represent the best two of three for the season. CW Prems have only lost two of eleven games this season,...
