Kelton Dawe is in his second season with the club, having joined us after a brief stint in Vancouver, after arriving from Nova Scotia. He has not always been available due to demands of work but whenever he has been on the pitch he has been very visible in either the lock or back row spots and...

'Chappy' Retains the Chair

Matt, in a formal role. Last night, Matt ‘The Chaplain’ Gordon was re-elected to serve the club as President for another term. Matt has given much to Ceedub since his joining some ten years back. During this time, he has been coach, player and administrator, certainly a “giver back”. This...

CW YOUTH - U19 ISLAND CHAMPS The U19 Final last Sunday was a rematch of the previous weekend’s road trip for the CW team when they travelled to Comox.  With the wetter conditions, the going was to favour the North Island style of game. As the game progressed, it was clearly evident that the...

This Has A Nice Look To It!

Today, we call upon The Sage on the Sidelines for a take on the weekend matches. “Saturday past saw CW men on the road for the first time this season. The Lomadome was the venue, facing a Reserve team that sat atop the table, undefeated and a Premier side in the cellar. The coaches, knowing...

On behalf of CW Rugby I offer the club’s heartfelt congratulations and thanks to the players and staff (including those who did not make it to Marseille but were involved in the build-up), on achieving their goal of qualifying for the 20th RWC in Japan next year. They have been a wonderful...

Ceedub takes its act on the road this week with their first trip to the mainland where they will take on the storied Meraloma club at Connaught Park. It is a tale of opposite ends of the ladder, with CW tied for second spot and games in hand and a 6 – 0 record and Lomas as cellar-dwellers at 1 –...

"Oh, what a beautiful morning....!" …….. in the words of Rodgers and Hammerstein. And from the late Tom Browne in his Irish brogue as he coached his grand-daughter in U6 Minis; “Aaah, Macca, it’s just like being in chapel!” CW Rugby hosted some 250 girls and boys, aged 5 – 11 at Windsor...

Tomorrow’s scheduled slate of four games has been reduced to three following Westshore’s forfeit in the Men’s Third Division match. The Valhallians need to fill two complete men’s teams for their trip to Nanaimo and simply put, do not have enough players for the third match. This is a plight...

RECORD REMAINS UNBLEMISHED

Surreal? On an almost perfect night for ‘Under the Lights’ football, the Vikes and many alum with CW, assembled to do battle. In a match that was far from technically perfect, it mesmerized with its tenseness and all out energy. A throng, worthy of the occasion filled the stand and the...

My interest was recently piqued when chatting with a club member who was present at the Million Pound Game in Toronto. What on earth was the Million Pound Game? In brief; “marketing of Rugby League in Canada”! Had the Toronto Wolfpack won the match against the London Broncos, they would have...

Local Derby Produces Highlight Reel Stuff

Today’s game recap is provided in length given the fact that very few CW fans seemed to (disappointingly), make the trek to the western suburbs.  Deservedly, you missed a cracker – for the second week in a row!  Much of what was predicted by this scribe on Friday came to pass in a classic...

CW will be looking to put the Barnard train back on the tracks tomorrow at Westshore (Juan de Fuca Arena).  The Tricolors lost their first round game in Barnard Cup play to JBAA and tomorrow they travel to the western suburbs to take on the Valhallians, a team which defeated CW handily, almost to...

Battle For the Best

UBCOB Ravens will arrive at Windsor tomorrow with a complete, allowable contingent of “international” rugby troubadours.  Despite their unexpected setback last week it is still more than fair to label them as “The Best” – defending B.C. Champs as well as National Club Champs, ergo, favorites...
