Two BIG games for our Premier teams tomorrow.  Women are at home to a Burnaby team that knocked off Caps at their last outing and will be gunning for the "W" to open some competition table “room” between themselves and CW.  Burnaby will be travelling with a full contingent and stock full...

The Magician finds something amusing! This pundit was doing too much grieving to be doing any musing on Monday last!  Last weekend was yet another tedious experience for any Canadian rugby fan.  There were many aspects of the game against the U.S. that may have been deemed as improvements...

Quoth The Sage; “Now you see wolves, now you….”  It appears that the Seattle Seawolves failed to realise in sufficient time that their players would require a passport to enter Canada – a condition that B.C. Premier Clubs’ Team Managers need to recognise and deal with some months before...

Local Derby – A Double to CW It was a dismal afternoon that bore witness to Saturday’s contests at MacDonald Park.  CW’s Reserves (Divvies) got the scoring underway early and the boys stretched it to 17 – 3 at the interval.  This pundit picked up the action in the second stanza with CW...

TRY!  Moose and Mack not in this week's picture! As of now, it's "game on" tomorrow at the Mac.  1:00 p.m. and 2:30 for the men's matches. CW Reserves (aka Divvies) will field a strong side as they seek to pick up where they left off last week at Windsor.  The Tricolour has a single...

It was a full slate of matches for CW on Saturday.  For starters, The Islanders (VIRU Men’s 3rd Div.), lost to U.Vic’s Saxons, something like a measure of five tries to two. Matches then transferred to the House of Windsor which stood up to the conditions remarkably well after three...

Loaded For Bear

It was back in mid-November when The Tricolours travelled to Klahanie and had a banner outing.   The Reserves squeaked by with a 24 – 23 win over Caps and the Prems stepped out with a champagne, near flawless game, 52 – 14.  Mucho agua under the bridge since then but Saturday sees CW fielding...

Meet “Big Mike”. Today, we introduce you to Mike Finnemore.  Mike joined CW back in late October from U.K.  He managed one game under the belt before befalling the fate of the BCRU Discipline Committee.  Mike returned to action last week against The Raven and will be on hand against Caps...

The Sage Summarises Events at Jericho. It was tough weekend for CW, losing both Battles of Jericho and the women losing to Seattle.  Today, the Sage brings a brief games review.  Before getting to that, it seems as if the women lost their first match for almost two years against The Sarries in...

CW kicks off the “second-half” tomorrow with a roadie to Jericho.  The Prems will be minus Captain Fraser, finally getting some well-earned recognition from Rugby Canada with the call to Europe.  100% behind you, Dougie, go for it!  The Ravens will be soaring high following a quality 26 – 23...


2017 IN REVIEW

2017 IN REVIEW

  It would be most inaccurate and unfair of CW to lay any more claim than that of choice to Julia Zussman and Ray Barkwill. Both players learned the game elsewhere however, having been chosen as the most recent club for them to hang their hats, we are totally proud of their honours earned...

Morgan Tate - good form, good game. Glad tidings, great joy! In the curtain-raiser, Lomas opened with an early penalty at five minutes however CW responded with enthusiasm and sustained pressure, only errors preventing a go—ahead try. Meralomas eventually worked play into the CW half and...

  The curtain-raiser kicks off @ 12:45 and Ollie and his boys will be hard pressed against a quality opponent in the Meraloma. Lomas are 8 – 2 and sitting in third spot on the table vs CW’s 5 – 4, of which, a couple of the four losses should really have been reversed. The Tricolors will...

Taking the blows...... Nanyak joined CW nine years ago.  In that space he has been a valuable contributor to both the NSMT's VII's and XV's programs. The game has taken some toll on his body and he has had to take time out for some lengthy periods to heal.  Depsite the fact he no longer seems...

Saturday was gloomy enough however, field conditions did enable both games to take place at Windsor. The writer apologizes to the Rippers with the pre-game report of being winless (in fact, a claim befitting Hornets). The Reserves match saw both teams bobbling opportunities and the Home...

Back in April when the Ravens last visited, they were underdogs in both grades yet went home with two wins! Tomorrow, it is CW that is the dog in the Prems where Ravens 8 – 0 record makes them the overwhelming favourite. We note that their team will be led by the irrepressible, Garret Garbe –...
