Monday's Musings

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...

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...

Prems Key Win in Seattle

Prems Key Win in Seattle

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...

Veritable Track Meets

Veritable Track Meets

CW’s Reserves (“Divvies” as the boys like to say), opened a commendable lead at the half in Nanaimo, Saturday. (22 – 12).  This pundit picked up the action at this stage.  Must admit, it was good to be one of a dozen of ‘the Faithful’ amongst a sizeable and knowledgeable (with no boorish...


Resources Stretched Thin

Resources Stretched Thin

With four senior teams on the road this weekend, player resources have been stretched to the max and fortitude will be required if victories are to be secured.  Firstly, our Premier Women are off to Bellingham to play Seattle.  The women had a quality win over the Sarries a couple of weeks...

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...

Sevens Back on the Continent

Sevens Back on the Continent

Vegas Sevens last weekend was certainly exciting with an all-American Final.  U.S. Sevens were the Talk of the Town after they walloped Argentina 28 – 0 in the Championship Final.  U.S. Rugby has convinced any of the Doubting Thomas’s that they have more than arrived on the Sevens scene.  There...
