ANOTHER WOMENS' SPECTACLE AT WESTHILLS   Elation, but…..Britt Benn’s face shows the exhaustion and possibly, the frustration of yet, another ‘Home’ underachievement.   A great weekend of Sevens, buoyed by excellent turnouts on both days. The new stands worked well and yes if the same can...

There were many stories on this day, a day when the elements decided to have their say in CW chasing the prize.

  Speaking with a few knowledgeable (CW) friends this week (some might opine, "oxymoronic") about the outcome of the Premier semi on Saturday and all reckoned it would be a CW win, given the “Points For” discrepancy between the teams.  CW, having scored 652 to Burnaby’s 505, is indeed,...

Between all 48 of us we should be able to throw a net over the students – at least for some of the match! The CW/UVic “mutual interdependence” has been no fluke. Years ago, Doug Tate was part of a triumvirate, another of whom had coached the Vikes, of instigators of CW Mini Rugby – a place for...
