U14 Boys:  CW welcomed JBAA to the VIRU Junior league yesterday in their first (ever?) age grade U14 match.  This is the Bays first attempt at this age level as far back as can be remembered and no doubt, in traditional James Bay fashion, will grow into a force to be reckoned with.  It is great...

The table was set nicely by the Tricolour Women when they defeated Cowichan 38 – 17 in the VIRU semi-final but it was UVic that enjoyed the banquet after their Norsemen thumped The Ones 57 – 0 and the Vikes won the Premier game 36 – 22. The Cowichan/CW battle was arguably, closer than the...

BCRU AGM: The AGM has been and gone.  We did a little digging and found it was rather poorly attended, e.g. only three VIRU clubs being represented in person; Fraser Valley having only one club represented in person and proxy votes being the order of the day.  Not a great idea to have this...
