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...

CWRFC will be pushed to its very limits this weekend.  Premier Men & Women travel to Vancouver Capilanos, Men & Women Div.1’s will be at Home against Bayside and Men’s Div.3 are on the road to Abbotsford – a full bill!  With three of these five teams atop their Leagues, this Saturday could be...

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...

Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad

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...

The Boys are Happy or What???

Oh, and there was rugby too!!! Yesterday, the CW Islanders Third Div. sought to keep their perfect record intact when they took on the Comox Kickers.  That is one heck of a trip, so good show Comox for mustering sixteen players to make the game. CW had 27 guys dressed for this one, so...

                      Bowd finds another way to beat the defensive line. The day unfolded under a glorious sky, yet a chill, when out of the sun, and no wind factor to speak of.  Fans had barely settled and for this pundit, years of “eyes in the back of the head”, caught Makaroff diving over...

Officials from both Cowichan and CW clubs have arrived at the most prudent decision for the weekend, that being, cancellation of both games.  Given Provincial travel requests regarding essential travel only, the fact that the Malahat is still one-lane, in a major state of disrepair and the Mill...
