Fans will note the absence of home games for senior men, and this season the club will have to cross the Rubicon a couple of times to face Caps and UBC, already having travelled to play Ravens, somewhat a repeat of last season's scheduling. Scheduling seems to this pundit to...

BATTLE OF JERICHO

BATTLE OF JERICHO

Today’s BCRU action pales in comparison to the memories of last night’s Women’s RWC Final!  Super enthralling action, it will go into the vault of Great Games in my books.  The contrast between the two game plans was so obvious from the start and both styles would have their proponents –...
