CLOSER … BUT, Still A Bagel! CW Men played three games on Saturday, resulting in two losses and a tie.  The Third Div., Islanders were at UVic to take on Shane Muldrew’s, very fit Saxons squad.  Although it was a competitive first half, the final score was a lot to a few.  Despite this...

Kickers In The House Last Saturday, Comox Women brought almost a full team and CW had some 25 ladies dressed for four quarters of teams twelve-aside.  The Hosts managed go ahead margins in all four sessions.  The Visitors put in a solid effort although appearing somewhat weary in the...

Weekend Doings

CW's Premier Reserve Men travel to Port Alberni tomorrow for their first Roadie of the season.  Port are always a vigorous opponent, especially so, at home.  Their club "gets" the true comraderie of rugby, for their hosting is renowned.  Good luck to the lads - do us proud, safe trip, good game...


A Tough Day At The Office

A Tough Day At The Office

M-o-M, Steve Pyke, breaks out. There was plenty of scoring, but Saturday was a tough day for the hosts.  The curtain-raiser to the curtain-raiser saw the Comox Kickers take the laurels.  It was great to see Comox with a full roster, a sign of health of the code in the Upper Island.  They...

  87 POINTS AS PREMS PROGRESS Our first game report for Monday comes from Vancouver.  On Saturday, King Kyle and his Merry Men set out on a Monumental Mission to take on #1 seed, Bayside RFC.  Despite a late season slump, the boys had scraped in at #8.  Might I suggest they...

PREMIER PLAYOFF PUZZLE SOLVED Last outing, the Ravens experienced the agony of defeat on the last play of the game, losing, 32 – 33 to UBC.  On Saturday, they inflicted the same emotion on CW, when on the last play of the game, they accepted a ‘gift’ intercept pass for a 30m scamper under...

A Lot on the Line

The House of Windsor will witness three hard matches tomorrow.  First up, we welcome after a long lapse, Kats RFC.  Who can remember the last time, no doubt, Vs the Wanderers, yonks ago.  CW’s Islanders, with a win, could assure home field advantage for the Playoffs in Div.3.  K.O....

Trifecta of Losses

Trifecta of Losses

For the second week in a row, Saturday was not kind to CW!  Our Women dropped a Divvies’ decision, 10 – 56 to UBC and the Prems were paddled, 21 – 67.  Based on these results, 12th of February seems like a long while ago.  This was the date of a 53 – 17 CW victory over the same Thunderbird...


On The Road Again

On The Road Again

No Home games this weekend.  Premier and Divvies Women do battle at UBC, with the Premier result being crucial as the regular season winds down.  UBC trail The Tricolour by  a mere point.  As evidenced last week at Caps, the outcome likely depends on the strength of the travelling team.   On...


Bubbles Burst With A Bang!

Bubbles Burst With A Bang!

It was a day when the realities of rugby reared their head!  Italy d. Wales, Caps won a pair at Klahanie and the Divvies got a clinic at Windsor Castle.  We will briefly cover the last of these debacles and a note or two about the remainder. Our Premier Women escaped with not much pride intact...

A Chronicle From The Mac CW’s Divvies set the table with their result in Saturday’s curtain-raiser against rival James Bay.   Led by Harry Elliott’s brace of tries, the boys amassed a mammoth nine try total in their victory, 61 – 7.  This result keeps the Divvies undefeated.  The boys...

The Future Awaits The Train A great day for rugby saw The Park gradually fill with fans, much to the delight of ‘Bogie’ whose task it was to pass the hat amongst the students!!  The proceedings commenced with a packed deck of 23 ‘Islanders Rolling Subs’, minus The Don, conspicuous by his...


RECORD REMAINS INTACT - BARELY

RECORD REMAINS INTACT - BARELY

  (Crediit, Mark Bryant - BCRN) By 2:30, the heavens had opened.  As with the pre-game prediction, “inclement weather and home field” were factors.  In my opinion, it was more how the boys wearing White played, fighting for every inch before capitulating, narrowly, 23 – 15. It was...


Triple-Header at Westshore

Triple-Header at Westshore

Finnie on the rampage. Overheard at training last night, from Captain Chiz; “Don’t take this game lightly, Westshore always shows up to play us!”  Truer words could not be said, no matter what the respective records of the Premier teams are to date.  Today we will just touch briefly on the...
