CW Women kick off the Island semi-final at 11:30 a.m.tomorrow at Windsor against Cowichan, a side they have beaten earlier in the season but the word is that the Cowichan side has bolstered its lineup and a close contest can be expected.  The faithful have only been exposed to one home game...

Action at the main game at Windsor opened in spades for the Visitors.  Three hit ups and a blind side thrust from McKnight for the opening score after a mere three minutes shocked CW!  Good for Velox as they had backed themselves on a penalty and won the subsequent lineout.  About ten minutes...

(This week’s game blog is brought to readers, courtesy of Sage on the sideline.) For this scribe the day had a measure of the unknown to it.  Not much was known about the opposition and the Tricolors have only had a couple of hit outs so there was concern about “Ground Hog Day’’ where we might...

Oh to be…… ……………a fly on the wall. The upcoming BCRU AGM, June 21st will see as its central issue debate and voting on the following, very cleverly, word-smithed motion, relating to the inclusion of Seattle Saracens in the CDI Premier League for the 2015/16 season.  The gist of the motion...

UNSUNG HERO – ON THE FIELD Nathan Oliver Plenty of rugby afoot but none on the CW front. The Ruggernut recently caught up with club MVP, Nate Oliver and got the skinny on his presence with CW rugby. This “Mighty Mite’s” yellow head gear can be spotted anywhere on the field where the hard...

Just a windup on the Women’s IRB Tourney. It was alluded to that there was a heavy CW volunteer involvement in an earlier blog on this site. Today, we would like to name names, starting with Dave Crossley, Chair of Local Organization – logistics, team liaison, volunteer management,...

(This game will be televised “live” at http://www.bcrugby.com/live/ ) It appears that Burnaby are coming to Windsor, loaded for bear with a selection that probably represents as good as they can muster. Cejvanovic has joined in from the NSMT’s 7’s; both Gotegote and Dolesau added in the...

  In preparation for the Burnaby Battle, we bring viewers the final fifteen minutes of last Saturday's game against the Thunderbirds, how the game was not won by the visitors almost appears a travesty based on this footage.   We have no word about the squad but "go pro" reports Tuesday as...


Blue Collar Performance

Blue Collar Performance

Eighty minute story, short. Fifteen blue collar guys fronted for the full eighty against the (new) league leaders, UBC, on Saturday. Hats off to The Ones, who, despite a lop-sided score produced a gutsy effort in the curtain-raiser. Our man at the park reports; “…despite many tries chalked up,...

REES BOOT Did a little delving after the fact and reckon this postscript blog is a credit to players who have learned how to play together as a club team but wear their loyalty to their schools in their hearts – the epitome that is the very essence of this great game of ours. SMUS fielded –...

Rugby Resumes

The CDI Premiership and Library Square Cup pick up play this weekend after a lengthy layoff. CW travels to UBC and a stint at the new Thunderbird Stadium. On paper it would appear a “no-brainer” as UBC sit in second place and the visitors are in the basement however with a closer inspection,...

Perhaps the reader may need to be a little forgiving this week for anything deemed as “overly superlative” but the effort tugged at the strings of this old timer’s heart – the very essence of the game which unfolded on Saturday. In a season that might be summed up as “tough” with yet...

Unfortunately, the First Div game is on hold - either a "re-sched" or points forfeiture.....no news on this front, suspect player shortage on CW's part.  However the "Big Shoe" will go on with k.o. slated for 2:45. UVic come into this, cock-o-the-hoop, sitting tied for first with...

With just three more home games remaining, CW takes on UBCOB Ravens this Saturday at The Park. This will be a mammoth occasion for both clubs with a mere three competition points separating the teams. These clubs have very similar records in their play this season. Ravens are 3 – 7, CW is 2 –...


Downstreaming Disaster!

Downstreaming Disaster!

Couldn’t cross the pond yesterday however looked forward to first viewing of BCRU’s down streamed version of the “match-of-the-day”. Although I was late tuning in, I had missed nothing, as “power had failed”, so it was to be old-fashioned radio the rest of the way. I can’t be too critical, for...

All Wrapped Up With Nowhere To Go! This scribe did not see this one in the flesh but the video is well worth a watch. It was far from an all-time classic. It was an error-filled, whistled-punctuated, close, hard-fought battle between these old rivals. The report will...

  Under sunny skies and a good crowd in attendance, team captains opposing each other in the battle of the FRF, the stage was set at Brockton for an interesting Premier contest. At the end of the day, The Tricolors chalked a nine-try, 53 – 18 spree over Rowers. This table had been set with...
