Local Rugby Stars

We start by recognizing the achievements of CW and Canada's, Gareth Rees and his selection to the National Sports Hall of Fame.  The photo displayed here is the jubilant Rees after his successful conversion to defeat Wales at Cardiff Arms Park.  Gareth's achievements for Canadian Rugby are many but typifying the man, this recent recognition, is a " recognition of Canadian Rugby as a mainstream sport".  'onya, Garth!



An award, that is unique and a first, came the way of another outstanding Canadian player, Phil Mack during the week.  Phil was presented with the first ever, First Nations Rugby Cap at his Home, James Bay Club.  Keeping with this man's humility with his contribution, he was quoted as saying; he "could not believe how emotional the experience was."  Phil is wingng his way to Glasgow with his Sevens mates today and CW congratulates him on this achievement.
