Spreading Some CW Rugby Love Across the Ocean!
Lou and Tom both hail from the Victoria region of British Columbia on the western seaboard of Canada (near Vancouver). The pair come from Castaway Wanderers RFC which is a Canadian rugby club based in Oak Bay, British Columbia. The Oak Bay Wanderers rugby club was founded in 1906 and merged with the Castaways rugby club in the 1990s. The modern version of the club has won multiple provincial titles in the B.C. Rugby Union.
Their clubhouse (The Temple) is a converted 1910 brick house in downtown Victoria. “We also have a facility at our field where we can hoist a few while watching a match. The Temple made it into a book of the top 100 rugby clubhouses in the world.”
So if any LFC members ever find themselves visiting or working in the area, be sure to get in touch with Lou or Tom and they’ll return the hospitality. Thanks for visiting LFC and we hope to see you again soon.
CWRFC offers its heartiest congratulations to James Bay and Canada’s Hans De Goede. Hans has finally been nominated for the Canadian Rugby Hall of Fame and will duly take his place. We will leave it to others to mention the fine achievements of this wonderful rugby man, suffice to say, we think he is a ‘cracker’. ‘onya, Hans.
