WHERE ARE THEY NOW? This week we provide a brief profile of Morgan Tate. Yonks ago, when Morgan was five, his dad and the Ruggernut decided to give mini rugby outside of elementary school, a shot at the club level. Morgan is one example amongst many who represents the success of this...

...... and now for The Rest of the Day

Premier Reserves. Men. Westshore 20 CW 17. After leading 17 – 12 at the half, aided by tries from CW “Mini grads”, Mike Makaroff and Brendan Schellenberger, the Reserves let this one get away. They will, no doubt rue missing the opportunity. In the waning moments they made three thrusts within...

Premier Train on Tracks A much awaited test for the Westshore faithful, the day had arrived.  Play opened with both teams testing. CW’s recycling looked good. Westshore won some ball only to grubber away, Newman covering nicely on one such occasion and made ground. Stewart, Hohert and...

This week we welcome and thank the return of The Sage to recount events at the House of Windsor last Saturday. CW welcomed Seattle; two men's teams to Windsor Sept 23, 2017. The rugby on display, at a point early in the season, offered up some exciting play and a number of miscues. This being...

  Saturday's Results: CW opened VIRU Division1 play with a lop-sided win over visiting Port Alberni Black Sheep. Port did not quite have the fire-power we have come to expect from them in the past however, some young players will progress with the season and they certainly “hung in there”....

CW takes some time today to ask all rugby-types to remember our southern neighbours and their recent plight. Canadians are extremely generous people and many of you have donated. We are not pushing such a move but were rather touched with last night’s appeals concert that we thought it prudent...

Double at House of Windsor - Bonus Points to Boot! CW opened their season on Saturday with a pair of home wins – Reserves, 40 – 12; Prems 28 – 15, against cross-town rivals JBAA. The Reserves were ahead 19 – 7 at the half, with James Bay well “in it”. Both teams scored early second-half...

  Last encounter; CW 36 d. JBA 25 (Season Opener, Saturday, 2:45 p.m., House of Windsor) Just what is the difference between Chile’s Jr Men’s programs and those of our country?  About seventeen points!  Just how can that be so and what must be done?  Hate to ask questions...

Something for Juniors to notebook. NSMT Maple Leafs Sevens.  Sad result, 0 - 4.  We were rather chuffed to see four of our boys with this squad but results for our Tier #2 Sevens guys leave much to be desired. Brennig Prevost, moons ago and currently member of Men's U20's team that dropped...

WOMEN'S CHANCES DIMINISH Despite CW’s Karen Paquin escaping the clutches of a Welsh tackler, once again another good run would come to naught with an unforced error and this was the story of the afternoon in a contest that was somewhat lack-luster from a Canadian pov. From the kick off errors...
