Today, we call upon The Sage on the Sidelines for a take on the weekend matches. “Saturday past saw CW men on the road for the first time this season. The Lomadome was the venue, facing a Reserve team that sat atop the table, undefeated and a Premier side in the cellar. The coaches, knowing...

HUBERT HITS HALF CENTURY Today we bring readers a couple of human interest stories, going back into our archives for content for one and pilfering a great story from Rugby Canada’s website for the other. Last Saturday in Marseille, Hubert Buydens suited up in a Canadian jersey for the...

Ceedub takes its act on the road this week with their first trip to the mainland where they will take on the storied Meraloma club at Connaught Park. It is a tale of opposite ends of the ladder, with CW tied for second spot and games in hand and a 6 – 0 record and Lomas as cellar-dwellers at 1 –...

Three 'Dubs' For Ceedub!

It was all CW on Saturday - Men's Premier Action. Saturday saw a hat-trick of home wins for CW rugby. Action began on this glorious sunny day with the Premier Women at 11 a.m.! The ladies fielded a very strong group against what seemed like a fledgling Comox club. Comox continued to...

WEEKEND PREVIEW

Tomorrow’s scheduled slate of four games has been reduced to three following Westshore’s forfeit in the Men’s Third Division match. The Valhallians need to fill two complete men’s teams for their trip to Nanaimo and simply put, do not have enough players for the third match. This is a plight...

UNSUNG HERO(OINE) ON/OFF the FIELD It has been some time since we have run this club interest item.  Today we feature Lauren Sargent. CW: Lauren, you could hardly be described as being of average size. Just what is it that attracts you to this game of rugby where you play against women of...


RECORD REMAINS UNBLEMISHED

RECORD REMAINS UNBLEMISHED

Surreal? On an almost perfect night for ‘Under the Lights’ football, the Vikes and many alum with CW, assembled to do battle. In a match that was far from technically perfect, it mesmerized with its tenseness and all out energy. A throng, worthy of the occasion filled the stand and the...

Perhaps on paper, the visitors, CW, might be deemed favorite however UVic are fielding a confident squad, led by their very capable and threatening link at #9/10 – Stewart and Bowd. CW’s newcomer, Hall slots back in at #10 and he will be keen to match his talents with Bowd. The Vikes will...

CW traversed the Malahat and wended to The Pigpen on Herd Road, with two senior teams this past weekend.  The Premier Women provided the curtain-raiser against the locals as the skies opened and the winds blew.  The weather proved to not be a detriment to the rugby.  Cowichan has had a...

Mini Rugby - Turn Back Your Clocks!

CW Action, Saturday - Herd Rd., Cowichan Piggies RFC. Premier Women 11:15 a.m.  Island Fall League.  CW at 3 - 2 take on the always tough Cowichan ladies at 2 - 4.  CW had a great tussle with Westshore Women last Saturday, losing by a mere two points, so we can expect this match to be...

My interest was recently piqued when chatting with a club member who was present at the Million Pound Game in Toronto. What on earth was the Million Pound Game? In brief; “marketing of Rugby League in Canada”! Had the Toronto Wolfpack won the match against the London Broncos, they would have...


Local Derby Produces Highlight Reel Stuff

Local Derby Produces Highlight Reel Stuff

Today’s game recap is provided in length given the fact that very few CW fans seemed to (disappointingly), make the trek to the western suburbs.  Deservedly, you missed a cracker – for the second week in a row!  Much of what was predicted by this scribe on Friday came to pass in a classic...

In Defense of Barnard

CW will be looking to put the Barnard train back on the tracks tomorrow at Westshore (Juan de Fuca Arena).  The Tricolors lost their first round game in Barnard Cup play to JBAA and tomorrow they travel to the western suburbs to take on the Valhallians, a team which defeated CW handily, almost to...

Double Header to Men's & Women's Prems

What an amazing day of wonderful weather to backdrop the action at Windsor which started at 10:15 a.m. yesterday.  The UVic Saxons had a convincing win, although the Islanders were happy with their trio of tries.  Best take-away from this one was the fact that the team had some eighteen...

UBCOB Ravens will arrive at Windsor tomorrow with a complete, allowable contingent of “international” rugby troubadours.  Despite their unexpected setback last week it is still more than fair to label them as “The Best” – defending B.C. Champs as well as National Club Champs, ergo, favorites...

It seems almost foreign to see a Caps team minus Glen McKinnon! With weather predicted as perfect, CW will take to the pitch on Saturday for three outstanding contests.  The Premier Women kick off at 11:15 a.m. Vs Westshore.  With only the two women’s teams in town, the matches...

Growing the game. Earlier this week CW took some flak from some sources for stymying the game.  We would be remiss were we not to respond to such accusations.  It’s good to have a whipping boy.  Whipping boys around the BC Premier League include but are not exclusive to referees, import...

Stretching the point! On a personal note – always good to be at Hornets RFC, as one of the 1968 “re-founding fathers” I can usually bump into an old mate or two and on this occasion it was Bill Dryden.  A good support group of Used-to-Bees was on hand as usual and Nanaimo, your ground, lights...
