Better Odds Than Derby Winner! Rich Strike’s recent Kentucky win at 80/1 segues into the final days of CW’s 50/50 Raffle.  The pot is currently over $6000.  To my calculation, I buy $100 worth of tickets and the chances of Striking it Rich are slightly over 30/1, pretty good odds. Let’s see if...

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....

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...

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...
