Wednesday's Ruck & Maul

The year in review would have to have the performances of Canadian Women’s teams in both VII’s and XV’s as arguably, the top achievement. Further to this, Canada will be hosting a leg of the Women’s World Rugby VII’s Circuit in April. This tournament will take place at Westhills Stadium in...

Schnell & Riordan on the attack! Anna Schnell, coach of CW’s Girls program was an elite player on an elite Burnaby Lake Rugby Club squad in her playing days. In her six seasons (2004-2010), Schnell was a dominating force as Burnaby Lake won three provincial championships. She also led B.C. to...

SEVENS HEAVEN? Canada’s Women went 2 – 1 on day #1 at Dubai, losing to nemesis, England, 17 – 12 in a hard-fought contest. The physicality and commitment in this video makes many a mere watcher, cringe! After defeating U.S.A., 36 – 0 on day #2, the ladies faced another nemesis in the...

GOLD COAST SEVENS. The results of Canada’s matches on Day #1 provided very interesting statistical analysis but unfortunately, for the boys, all meaningless, as no wins occurred and relegation to the “lesser” echelons resulted from what was a good day of work and “ever so close” but we know...

Another High Achievement for Women. Canada’s U20 Women won a second, high profile silver medal yesterday when they finished runner-up to Australia at the Youth Olympics at Nanjing, China. Perhaps the journey was more important than the destination. In Pool play, Canada lost to China, 24 –...

Well, Canada's dream run is over.  Fair go for the English - runners-up three times and today their defence was simply impregnable and Scarrat showed her class, as it should have been.  This pundit cannot offer sufficient superlatives for the effort throughout this campaign and especially,...

  By now, any readers of this site would have seen/ heard about the Women's monumental, semi-final victory yesterday over France, 18 - 16. One cannot offer enough superlatives for this monumental milestone for Canadian Rugby, specifically, for Canadian Women’s Rugby. Their self-belief,...

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...

Canada Women Go 2 – 0 @ RWC, Paris. Canada Women scored six tries (through the backs) and 21 points in each half to decimate Samoa yesterday. The point’s differential was big however they still need to beat or tie England on Friday to get into the Championship side of the affair. Brittany...

  This review of the women's opener against Spain shows some classic stuff!  Just loved Harvey's convert of her own first tally from the side line - skills some local "kickers" would envy.  The game report you read here asked some questions of the performance and speculated that the...

Canadian Women Hurdle Spain In Opener

  After a shaky start, the women got untracked, led by a hat trick of first half tallies from speedy, Magoli Harvey.  The interval score had Canada up 24 - 0, with the promise of more to come. After what must have been a "perplexing" second forty, the final score read 31 - 7, a 7 - 7 second...

Canada won the Bowl at the Commonwealth Games yesterday in Glasgow.  South Africa upset N.Z. for the gold and Geriant John's Aussies took the bronze.  There were nine "core" teams in this contest and unluckily for the boys, they finished ninth when they failed to qualify for championship play...

 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...

The Canadian ladies managed to get intriguingly close to the Silver Ferns in their "exhibition" match, two day's back. The Kiwi women, like their male counterparts are almost "unbeatable", particularly, one would think in their home stable.  The 8 - 16 scoreline is close and must be...
