Monday's Musings - Ups & Downs of a Rugby Weekdend

Posted in B.C. Rugby / CW Rugby / Game Reports / Juniors / Minis / Prems

A rainy Sunday saw a full slate of junior games at Windsor. Minis were on deck in full flight, despite being “clocks back”, followed by U14’s playing an inter-club match against Velox. An interesting observation regarding numbers is the fact that attrition seems to occur, mostly between minis...

Caps visit Windsor tomorrow with a bitter memory of last season’s sound 52 – 12 defeat, no doubt, still on the minds of those that played in the game. But as the header says….CW fielded a team that included; Buydens, Tiedeman, Jake Ilnicki, Kleeberger, Dingwall, Buckley, Monro and Northcott,...

  Plenty of weekend rugby, although not a whole lot to crow about from a Tricolor viewpoint. Saturday started with The Ones getting hammered by The Norsemen, 76 – 12, confirming an earlier expressed pov about just how challenging it will be this season for many club sides playing the...

Tomorrow’s CDI Premiership encounter sees The Tricolors back at Wallace Field with The Ones kicking off at 1:00 and Premiership action at 2:30 p.m. Word from the training pitch is encouraging, as numbers are picking up and competition for selection is becoming more intense. The Vikes laid quite...

It didn’t take long on Saturday for UBC to make their mark at Windsor. Last year’s CW U18 captain, James Carson was the first to cross the line in the curtain-raiser. It then seemed like an open door policy had been adopted by the hosts as an endless parade of eight tallies proceeded, leaving...

James Carson (last season U18 captain), returns "home" on Saturday. It is a resurgent UBC program that visits Windsor tomorrow, the first game here against these two clubs in many a moon.  UBC has been promoted to the CDI Premiership League and a good thing in the eyes of this pundit...

  CW takes on newly promoted UBC at Windsor this Saturday.  When we get the selected teams we'll make an effort to guess at what the supporters might see, although at training on Tuesday The Triclor ranks looked thin, as injuries seem to be prevalent once again. Although the potential of...

On paper, the hosts appeared as underdogs but on the day, every player did his job, confidently and competently, providing a win of good value. The highlight was a team commitment to defense. CW opened the scoring with a penalty and the contest went twenty minutes before the first tally after...

It was hats off to the boys for a pair of solid wins at Windsor today.  The Ones set the table with a significant seven try, 43 - 12 win over James Bay. The Prems led 17 - 7 at the half, due to a good defensive stand in the final minutes.  James Bay made it close at 17 - 14 but it was all CW...

Late-breaking because we have been holding out for lineups but it seems, "no-can-do", as an early season void has forced late selections. We can tell you that the 1:00 p.m. match CW Ones Vs Norse has been rescheduled.  So it's just the "main game" Vikes hosting The Tricolors @ 2:45 @...

Yesterday at Cowichan RFC's, Herd Rd Field, the table was set quite nicely in early matches between the Fraser Valley R.U. & the V.I.R.U.  The Spring Tide (U20) Men, coached by Winston Stanley opened with a lop-sided victory by a score of 78 to 12.  UVic's Fergus Hall led the way in the...

CW congratulates all winning teams from yesterday's Finals.  We have some measure of empathy for Burnaby Prems, losing a tight one to James Bay.  Burnaby has been in the Final for the past three years, only to be turned away, yet again.  It would have been their club's third big wn for the...

The day was a magic one for rugby – sunny, firm surface, testing breezes, not to forget the “MacDonald Slope”. Fans were amassed in number and we must editorialize that it would be great to see such “home” support on a regular basis at Windsor. Two evenly matched teams promised to make this...

There are very few games in a season when an observer can be completely knackered just from "merely looking on" and so it was this past Saturday.  The writer can only imagine just how gutted the CW boys must have been post game.  Thanks to both teams for giving the contest your utmost and...
