Saturday Under Preview

Not sure if our women will be serious contenders for a playoff spot or of a mere nuisance value to teams for the rest of the way. A win vs Seattle would be absolutely essential if a playoff run is to be the case, as Burnaby travels to Capilano and a five –pointer at home just might put a semis...

PREMIERS SPLIT A PAIR CW teams had a mixed bag of results on Saturday. For the CW Women Prems, the rubber has hit the road as the gap between contenders was widened at Cowichan on Saturday, with the locals dishing out a fairly convincing, 46 – 24 score line. With only seven comp points after...

CW sends both men and women on the road on Saturday. The women travel over The Hat to Piggysville, a team they have to catch in the standings as they drive for the semis. The Cowichan, Kelly Russell led women, have a five point lead on The Tricolour going into this one. Last time round,...

On the road again…………….. Off to Rowers This time last season when The Boatmen visited Windsor. Our Reserves let one get away with a catastrophic second half implosion. For the Prems, it was somewhat of a breakout encounter with the Tricolour going away. 52 – 14. Pre-Xmas, Rowers went 2 – 5...

A centennial occasion was reached on Saturday at Westhills when the NSMT defeated Chile by a score of 35 - 16, (five tries to three). The game never really aspired to any high standards and there is work to be done to be in a place where the boys can put the wood on the U.S. next Saturday...

Doug “The Iceman” Fraser Cometh (the hour, cometh the man), pins his ears for a ninety meter scoot to cinch victory. ** Very poor crowds at Wellington Sevens, once the highlight of the circuit, the past two years have seen a diminishment of notable proportions.  Maybe IRB will review...

Who Let the Dogs In?  It was rather a bizarre Mullet Tour for the boys to Seattle this weekend. After a 5:00 a.m. rising for a 5:50 departure, the group was delayed for nearly three hours at the border crossing, compliments of yet, another Executive Order. Upon arrival, the teams mutually...


The Bigs K.O. Saturday for CW

The Bigs K.O. Saturday for CW

CW Men take their Premier and Reserve teams on the road to challenge Seattle at Magnussen Park tomorrow. By some quirk of scheduling, CW has drawn away games in succession to the Sarries, perhaps a mistake but one which costs CW some added $$ despite players paying for overnight...

A Day of Tough Outcomes

A Day of Tough Outcomes

(Photo credit - John Richardson) For the second week in a row, the weather failed to cooperate. Regardless, a good crowd was mustered by start of play at MacDonald last Saturday. Action began very favourably for CW with a couple of very focussed and strong drives, five or six retentions,...


Is This the One?

Is This the One?

It has been a rewarding “first half” of rugby for CW with The Ones finishing in third spot and the Prems in second – the only Island club with both teams in the playoffs! Of course, these placings pose a challenge on Saturday, with The Ones needing to travel to Port Alberni whilst the Prems need...

When it was all done and dusted, CW came away from MacDonald still sporting a bagel against James Bay from the three encounters so far this season in Premier play. It was a day that only the staunchest of rugby fans might want to brave to watch these storied clubs do battle. Perhaps it was...

CAM POLSON For a number of years, rightly or wrongly the guess, it seems as if CW has given more to the UVic rugby program than what it has received in return. This season the tide has somewhat reversed, although this “giving” continues with the likes of White, Kratz, Masterton, Prevost,...

Last night at UVic it was a game of two halves with The Visitors, a team which could control its own destiny, doing just that by the end of the night. It was good to see CW do that and also to finish with a flourish, both aspects we have not witnessed in recent seasons. The Vikes opened by...
