Eight Try Shellacking!

The writer's M-o-M, Tomas Eton, proves hard to pull down.  (Credit- Wendy Norman) Despite CW being the first and last on the score board, there was a deluge of a torrent of eight James Bay tries across the line in between! The header describes the day.   It was very difficult to follow up...


Critical Clash for Castaway Wanderers

Critical Clash for Castaway Wanderers

  Captain Flies High! CW travels across town tomorrow to take on the Bays at MacDonald in three games. I would be remiss by omitting credit to both clubs for fielding three senior men’s teams on the same afternoon. Both clubs have had some lean patches, with the Bays being...
