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...

There will be a good crowd and considerable interest at Klahanie Park and Brockton Oval tomorrow afternoon. A huge day for Burnaby in the three ‘BIGS’ – Men’s (at both grade levels) and Women’s Finals and for UBC and Seattle in both the Springs League Divisions Finals. CW congratulates...

  This event is one of our club’s special occasions. It was an evening of celebration as we had Yak Dala and Ciaran Hearn present and were all thrilled and proud for them and their Sevens team mates’ achievements on this day, qualifying for Cup play in Glasgow. These two, plus a capped...

Tale of the Tape

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

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...

A tip of the Ruggernut's cap to those lads on the road today, over to Lomaville to complete a mid-season obligation that had been postponed.  Toughie, on an Easter weekend but a sign of good character.  Best of luck, lads.     PREMIER POINTS FINAL TABLE    ...

Tomorrow CW goes on the road to control its own destiny for the upcoming playoffs. A determined "second half" has put the boys in a position where they are not reliant on the outcomes of other matches.  This being said, it is still not a "piece of cake" as to what the playoff picture may be. ...

“Hard earned” was predicted and hard earned it was! For much of the day CW was out of synch and a determined Loma provided testy opposition. It looked like it might be easy when Mike Fuli almost “waltzed in” on the first attack but he stepped out of bounds. A seeming, almost complacency and...

      Tomorrow, the Lomas visit Windsor at the end of what must seem like a nightmare to current and former players of this long and storied sports club. Their demise this year has served notice to all clubs as to how fragile our existence at the Premier level might be. It would appear...

The opening ten minutes featured CW pressure from Barkwill, Tieds and Kleeberger but UVic ‘D’ held, UVic had runs from their backs but at twelve minutes it went terribly wrong when Dingwall pinched an overthrown line out ball from the students and fed Buckley, with Kleeberger on his shoulder...

Most unfortunately, we will not see all of our grads in action on Saturday at Windsor. The biggest disappointment will be in the FRF where Thornber is injured and Bos is being kept out for the upcoming U20 RWC. Further, UVic is reported to be sporting a number of injuries. Last time these two...

Saturday last saw the season’s biggest crowd assembled to witness the season’s best display from The Prems – a comprehensive victory over Capilanos, by a score of 52 – 12. From the kickoff, Horton grubbered a loose ball from the ruck to score wide out. From the ensuing kickoff, Armstrong...

Tomorrow's action promises to be fast and furious when the Capilanos visit Windsor Park. The First Div game is an "unknown" although the locals will field a couple of lads who suited up with Prems Vs Burnaby, certain to stiffen the side.  Caps are flying high, sitting in third place in the race...

By k.o. time the rain was really living up to its prediction!  That being said, hats off to Burnaby for a pitch that was in good nick under such atrocious conditions.  There was good early engagement and commitment from both teams, Dolesau being particularly tightly marked. At the ten minute...

VRC started with great élan, their forwards showing intent not to stand down from a more vaunted pack.  At the first set, perhaps a portent of things to come, saw one of the front row players on the floor.  In fact, CW’s FRF, mostly “International” by birth only, with Jake Ilnicki having a cap...

Saturday 1ST March was a good day for the Tricolor.  The ones managed a bonus point win over current semi-finalists, Rowing Club, when they added a last minute try.  Rowers earned a bonus point in a well played First Div matchup. In the main game, CW let loose with an eight try barrage, headed...
