ARDRON HEADS UP LONGLIST Tyler Ardron, playing in this weekend’s Super Rugby Qualifying Final, heads up NSMT’s long-list of forty names, as Captain for the upcoming RWC. This long list is not exclusive for those currently injured who may become available. It is with interest that there are...

Unsung Hero - Off the Field

KEEPERS OF THE GATE Every little bit counts when it comes to keeping the head above water, regarding the operating costs required to run a rugby club. Each home game, Gord Hawkins and Peter Kilshaw “patrol” the pathway egress at Windsor Park, courteously requesting a “donation’ from attendees...

Sadness & Gladness

It is an exception that we post today’s sad story and subsequent appeal. The news comes from a former player, Trevor Pollock who is appealing on behalf of his daughter. “Charleigh's journey started eight months ago, when she had her first unexplained seizure. Our family had no idea the...

Breakout by Morra in Paris …..and why does this headline not surprise CW fans?  Windsor Park has seen Josiah’s mercurial magic and enthusiastic exuberance over the past three seasons, patrons scratching their heads; “How did he do that?”  He has been included with a number of Canadian...

TO A MAN!  (Photo; BCRN) Very interesting to note the NSMT’s 7’S were present to a man to offer their thanks and best wishes to their past coach, Damian McGrath, last Friday at JBAA. The coach gave each player a mounted collage of memory, recorded in photo after the team had won their only...

This site has provided a good picture of the visiting Vikes this week with few accolades for our boys. Today we will muse a little about The Tricolours. The teams match up so equally in so many ways and in so many positions that it is difficult to predict a winner. Will CW react and nullify...

FOUR to WATCH All Eyes on Nick!  Early in the week we looked at U.Vic’s seniors, so today we mention two freshman who could put a serious stamp on Saturday’s match. We open the batting with Nick Carson, a man of many talents, not the least being his size! We watched Nick handle ball...


Call Out the Army

Call Out the Army

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...


Tricolours Best Visitors

Tricolours Best Visitors

It was a good day at the House of Windsor despite the weather conditions varying from deplorable to acceptable. The table was set with a close-fought, well played, Men’s 3RD Div. match between Westshore and CW. The win went to the Visitors, something like 41 – 33, with ALL of CW’s points...


Saturday's a Rugby Day

Saturday's a Rugby Day

A strong men's combination has been selected to face Rowers in the final league game of the season. Rowers went down to JBA last weekend with a score line of 12 – 48 and have to return to the Island again to face a team preparing their game for playoff action. The Rowers have been doing it...

Deja vu?

Deja vu?

Zuss; "Not on my watch!" Is this the season for The Tricolour women?  CW has been building each game, somewhat reminiscent of the 2015/16 Premiership winning season.  That year all four games went to Westshore – then there was that unforgettable B.C. Final!  Of course there is no...

To the Games

For the ‘curtain-raiser’ this week our Men’s Divvies have posted one of their strongest selections in recent weeks despite some players being called for higher service. In the hopes of finishing with a flourish, we see a combination that finally gives Heppy a rest, Haydn Jenkins and Horton pair...


Here's Your Docket!

Here's Your Docket!

  First on the Block #1 John Braddock, already with a bid of $20 from an unnamed overseas bidder. Opening bid takes place 5:30 p.m., precisely this afternoon at Discovery Street Temple, Happy Hour. Fifteen starters and the sixteenth bid on the bench as ONE. Ah, the bench – a...

They Came; They Conquered!

  Tally Time! It wasn’t all disappointing news on Saturday, the CW Women Prems managed to defeat Burnaby, 39 – 17 for a promising start to the afternoon. The match was only two minutes old when CW broke from their own end and Bazian finished with opening points. Burnaby...

BIG NIGHT Under Lights

BIG NIGHT Under Lights

CW took a pair off Westshore last night at Juan de Fuca. Just comparing the training and playing conditions as attested by the lighting facilities for the two clubs places CW in the ‘Spartan’ category and provides a definite home field advantage but on this night that was not to be. Despite...

Owing to the inclement weather of recent weeks, CW finds itself in a very rare, midweek encounter.  In order to enable Westshore to complete their season schedule, the chaps will front up for two matches tomorrow night.  The Reserves play at 6:15 and the Prems will kick off at 7:45 at Jaun...

"D.J." Back in the Fold

CW Rugby had to search long and deep to find a picture of DJ Sears-Duru in action. We go back some six years when DJ first came to the west coast as a touted junior prospect with a national team future. Djustice played 2 – 3 seasons with the Tricolours before this prediction came to fruition....

Riley Inicki and Cole Braid in action, Saturday. Yesterday’s game report was cobbled through rather hazy eyes after a BIG weekend! In the report we applauded the Bay’s, Cole Braid who had overcome a go round with cancer some years back. Some of our special interest and pride comes from the...
