A Feast of 'Footie'

A Feast of 'Footie'

Saturday brings a feast of rugby to CW fans,  At 1:00 p.m. at The Park, The Ones k.o. Vs high-flying Caps I's.  At best, Ceedub can play a spoiler role as the chances of a final four berth are almost mathematically off the cards.  Prems should be a beaut as two fairly equal squads match up in...


Burnaby Prevail

Burnaby Prevail

It was with a measure of optimism that the boys assembled at Schwartz Bay, only to find The Ones leaving the ramp, three players short on the starting XV.  Unfortunately, the day on the pitch went somewhat like that!  The Ones showed great resistance and resilience to a good Burnaby...


First Divvies Achieve Success

First Divvies Achieve Success

Posted in B.C. Rugby / CW Rugby / Men's Reserve Div

This one was a mere three minutes old when Rower’s #10, Recinos, spotted an opening down the blind side and showed a clean pair of heels on his 60m run to the try line.  Rowers were good value and added another for a 12 – 0 lead, somewhat deflating the CW lads.  At the fifteen minute mark,...

Hearn, Human Wrecking Ball As CW Hits Trifector

Saturday 1ST March was a good day for the Tricolor.  The ones managed a bonus point win over current semi-finalists, Rowing Club, when they added a last minute try.  Rowers earned a bonus point in a well played First Div matchup. In the main game, CW let loose with an eight try barrage, headed...

    This time five years ago Rowers made their last appearance at Windsor, against the likes of O'Toole & Sinclair.  We know Sinclair has since earned a Currie Cup ring and successfullty plies his trade with London irish.  O'Toole had a brief stint with the Ospreys and since has worn...

It's gonna be a beaut!  There will be three very BIG happenings for the Club this weekend.  Firstly, on Saturday at 1:00 and 2:45 the senior men take on the Vancouver Rowing Club, an up and coming team in the BC Premier League - a club which has its First Divvies well ahead of The Tricolor...

CW Split At MacDonald

CW Split At MacDonald

Posted in CW Rugby / Men's Reserve Div / Game Reports / Rugby Club

The Curtain Raiser was a dour battle between a "middle of the comp" team and a cellar dweller.  The day, being inclement, meant the struggle was to be evenly matched, with the Visitors having the likes of Middleton, DJ Sears and Chapman, leading the pack, a sniff of potential dominance in this...

A veritable Who's Who around Rugby Canada appears to be suiting up for what could be an epic contest tomorrow at MacDonald Park when CW comes up against James Bay for the third time this season, the previous two encounters, with the exception of one half, both being forgettable occasions...

Keelan Chapman on the rampage! CW 's First Divvies started the second half of the season with a good win yesterday over UBCOB Ravens.  The four points earned now places the club in a positive vein and off and running for more.  Ceedub trailed 7 - 8 at the half but soon got things going in...

UVic came up with two, rather comprehensive victories over Ceedub, this past weekend.  The Norsemen shellacked The Ones, certainly the biggest hiding in distant memory.  Hopefully, in the New Year, the hackneyed; “it can only get better”, will actually apply.   The Premiers had the score at 7 –...

This week’s hero is the Captain of The Ones, Jacob “Chips” Lamb.  Jacob is a hard, uncompromising man who leads by his deeds. Jacob gave away his age to CW – 33. He and his dad run Engarde Trucking Co.  He is a hometown boy, becoming a rarity with the two Premier clubs in Victoria and he...


The Ones Break Their Goose Egg

The Ones Break Their Goose Egg

A moment to Remember was taken prior to kick off when Nanaimo Hornets visit to Windsor provided a small salve for Ceedub Ones on Saturday.  In a very well played, enjoyable to watch and close match, the Tricolors eked out a 24 - 17 win.  The teams traded tries in the early going and it was right...

A brief Hornet History 101!  Being a Founding Father of the rejuvinated (1968), version of the Hornets, The Ruggernut actually has some credibility in reporting this story!  Nanaimo Hornets (originally, The Rovers), were instituted in 1888 when the Free Press reports; “The match between the...

  Saturday at Windsor saw no joy in Mudville, with the season’s best home crowd leaving the park somewhat frustrated after watching the boys leave competition points on the plate, dropping a 5 – 7 decision to The Ravens.   The Raven opened with pressure and posted first points after an...

Excitement is in the rugby air as another CDI season kicks off.  The state of the CW Nation appears hale with 58 senior men registered.  These numbers are every bit as healthy as the past three seasons, yet it is a problem that the club is having to field two senior teams.  CW is struggling to...

In horrendous weather conditions, CW dropped a pair of results to James Bay yesterday.  The Ones found themselves down 10 - 18 at the interval and failed to make any inroads in the second stanza, losing 17 - 33.   The Prems had a plot that could have and some might say, should have, succeeded...

Students School Hosts

A case of "all tied up and nowhere to go"   UVic visited Windsor Park yesterday and gave a clinic to the Hosts, winning the curtain-raiser 53 - 0 and taking the main game 45 - 10.   "Scores perhaps did not accurately reflect the extended periods of possession by CW.  Unfortunately, The...

Scotty ('The Bus') Franklin, on the rampage at Gordon Head.  Relishing his return to #8, Scott had a solid game, being named MoM.  (Game photos posted - credits, Ron Willems.) The two matches at Gordon Head produced somewhat stereotyped results, with CW opening up big leads and the home...

Saturday, April 20, 2013 CWRFC vs Meraloma RFC.   Division One: Dry fields; sunny with cloudy periods; limited wind. This match was to be another amazing chapter in the story of the CW season of bizarre injuries and playing rules that saw Canada VII’s captain Nanyak Dala start on the side...

Saturday, April 20, 2013 CWRFC vs Meraloma RFC. 2 games Premiers: Clouded over; spit of rain towards the end of the match This game scribe was reminded of another must win game played on this pitch some years ago that went into quadruple overtime on the strength of a last ditch try by...


Not Necessarily A Very Good Day!

Not Necessarily A Very Good Day!

Saturday last saw The Tricolors visit the Shark Tank.  Bayside, a club battling relegation and their plight looking even more dismal following the Ravens win over hosts, JBA, provided more than sufficient creditable opposition for the visitors.   The Ones needed a win and a win of some measure...

Coach, Hyde-Lay has announced a strong XV for Saturday's Bayside encounter.  Mike Scholtz has finally completed a long injury recouperation period and will join Mike Fuailefau in the centers.  Although Fuli was called up for VII's duty, he saw little playing time, so this pair should be itching...
