Rugby Canada faced the second of three similarly ranked opponents today in Bucharest, when they played Romania.  Unfortunately for the boys, the result turned out to be the same as it was, same place, same time, one week ago when Romania defeated Tonga 19 - 18.  Today it was 21 - 20. Romania...

  A sold out, 19,000 at PPL Park in Philadelphia last Saturday witnessed one of the finest performances from the Eagles, all time, in this viewer’s recall.  The U.S had The Maori on the rope in a well officiated match from Canada’s Chris Assmus.  He discerned the constant infractions by The...

A moment to Remember was taken prior to kick off when Nanaimo Hornets visit to Windsor provided a small salve for Ceedub Ones on Saturday.  In a very well played, enjoyable to watch and close match, the Tricolors eked out a 24 - 17 win.  The teams traded tries in the early going and it was right...

A brief Hornet History 101!  Being a Founding Father of the rejuvinated (1968), version of the Hornets, The Ruggernut actually has some credibility in reporting this story!  Nanaimo Hornets (originally, The Rovers), were instituted in 1888 when the Free Press reports; “The match between the...

You may have read it on this site a few days ago that much would be learned from the Women's game #1 loss to France.  Clairvoyant, it was - quickly assimilated and acted upon.  We dip our lids to the NSWT that defeated France 11 - 6 yesterday.  Under inclement skies, the ladies scored the...

Yesterday, some 22,500 took in the Canada Vs NZ Maori game in Toronto, a crowd somewhat paling the mere 3500 at Westhills for the ARC’s and probably nixing any future big matches for the west coast.  On the tele, the atmosphere appeared to be magic with the exception of some voice...

Let’s rewind to Saturday's 'Big Picture'. The NSWT lost a close one to France, ranked fourth place in XV’s standings and host of the RWC later this year.  Canada, ranked sixth, got off to a slow start and reading between the lines on match reports, it was a game they still thought they could...
