What Makes A Rugby Club? No matter the outcome, the commonality of the game produces respect and life-long friendship! Firstly it needs players.  Hopefully, players who want to get better by working hard and then there are those that just wish to play for the love of the game....

Cometh the Hour

……………….Cometh the Man During the past decade, since the club’s last BC Championship in 2011, CW has had a great trot with #10’s.  There has been ‘Maestro’ Monro, ‘Ice Man’ Povey, Graf, Buckley, Hall F. and Hall J., and Crossland. In 2014, Graf slotted a field goal to salvage retention rather...


And Then There Were Two!

And Then There Were Two!

Saturday last saw the Premier Men leave a damp, miserable Victoria for a grey, chilly, and eventual brilliant, sunny, in more ways than won, Jericho Park.  The affair did not commence favourably for the Visitors with Ravens having twelve points on the board within ten minutes from tries by...


MAY THE 16TH BE WITH YOU!

MAY THE 16TH BE WITH YOU!

SEEN AT THE SEVENS CWRFC's VP, Erin and daughter, Emily. The weekend saw another Vancouver 7’s Event.  For an event that Rugby Canada relies heavily upon as a revenue source, the attendance must have been very disappointing.  Whatever the reason, crowds would have been 50 %, as...

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...

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...
