MAPLE LEAF WOMEN’S XV The women lost a tight game to England yesterday, 29 – 37.  Canada led 17 – 15 at the half and pulled away to a 29 – 20 gap with not a lot of ticks on the clock.  One could not tell from the Twitter feed what might have happened but the team allowed seventeen points in...

The fact that CW was victorious in both the U14 and U18 Age Grade Finals on Sunday was part of a great story of Junior Rugby in B.C.  The games that were played (U16’s won by Cowichan over Capilanos), all resulted in close scores and the two games reported on this site, also displayed great...

It started as a replica of last week for CW men.  Losing the toss and running “downhill”.  The game was very young when J.Mo was the recipient of quick ball from Crossland, bulled his way through a tackle, juked and jiggled thirty meters for first blood.  The next significant event was when...

CW Prems will visit McDonald Park once again this Saturday with the hopes of completing the job this time round.  It was a very even game last week which might have gone CW’s way with a quirk or two but it was not to be.  This week, it is to be hoped that the boys decide their own destiny. ...

The scoring opened in the CW vs. UBC game very early when the speedy UBC fullback received quick ball from a stolen ruck, outflanked what had been attacking players, for a sixty meter romp to the line. CW was quick to equalise when Zussman returned the compliment, alertly intercepting a UBC...

Pundit; “Well, we didn’t deserve to win that one.”….. fellow fan; “Well we didn’t deserve to lose it, either!”  For CW it was that kind of game.  Actually, neither team took this match by the scruff of the neck.  Leading 12 – 10, late in the contest, CW had the chance but whilst the conversion...

In the curtain-raiser yesterday at Windsor, the Velox were bolstered by a couple of players “coming down” and opened a worthy 14 – 7 lead over The Ones at the half.  The insertion of Coach Winnie at the half was the stabilisation factor that kept scoring from either team taking place in the...

Late with the blog...late with the reports! Very much after the fact, we bring you a report that CW U14 boys took a rather clinical "workshop" from a visiting Welsh team, Cyfarthfa High School, last Friday. From reports it seems rather challenging to fathom the age group parity but regardless,...
