From Eight to Eighties

The fabric of CW culture is based on this catch phrase. Last week we referred to the inventor of the Tetley Kicking Tee, when introducing Mark Wyatt. Let’s introduce you to the real Don Burgess. Burge achieved many notable feats on the rugby pitch for the Oak Bay Wanderers, the Crimson Tide,...

Tricolour Tripleheader

Tricolour Tripleheader

  Seattle Women, in second place in the Premiership League proved to be a real hurdle to their hosts on Saturday. Seattle opened strongly, keeping CW under huge pressure and in fact, not scoring created some visible deflation. CW managed to survive the early onslaught and work their way...

On the road again…………….. Off to Rowers This time last season when The Boatmen visited Windsor. Our Reserves let one get away with a catastrophic second half implosion. For the Prems, it was somewhat of a breakout encounter with the Tricolour going away. 52 – 14. Pre-Xmas, Rowers went 2 – 5...

A centennial occasion was reached on Saturday at Westhills when the NSMT defeated Chile by a score of 35 - 16, (five tries to three). The game never really aspired to any high standards and there is work to be done to be in a place where the boys can put the wood on the U.S. next Saturday...

Who Let the Dogs In?  It was rather a bizarre Mullet Tour for the boys to Seattle this weekend. After a 5:00 a.m. rising for a 5:50 departure, the group was delayed for nearly three hours at the border crossing, compliments of yet, another Executive Order. Upon arrival, the teams mutually...

The Bigs K.O. Saturday for CW

CW Men take their Premier and Reserve teams on the road to challenge Seattle at Magnussen Park tomorrow. By some quirk of scheduling, CW has drawn away games in succession to the Sarries, perhaps a mistake but one which costs CW some added $$ despite players paying for overnight...

When will he ever learn?? England’s captain, Dylan Hartley, sent from the field once again last week. The disdain on Eddie Jone’s (face in the crowd), kinda said it all! Hartley had only been on the pitch for six minutes when he swung a ‘haymaker’ which made some contact, arguably...
