Tomorrow at Gordon Head Field, CW travels cross-town to take on Velox. We read in today's paper that Velox are the favourites in this contest, so as The Underdogs, I expect that CW players will be really cranking up the heat. Our Firsts play at 1:00 p.m. and The Premiers play at 2:30.

The Firsts play Comox. It is good to see some familiar faces in familiar roles...Hodgey is back at the helm of the Firsts and with supporting cast of Beaulac, Langdon, the Brothers Handyside, newcomers Matt James and Pollock, the pack looks formidable. It will take more than just being there, as newly-promoted Comox, is off to a good start and will be out to impress. James Carson at # 9 will link with Welshy, Jenkins (aren't they all??) and anchor a pacy backline with finishers, Wolfey (aka The Howler), Omar and Cutter.

Prems have a few injuries...good grief, so early in the season! The Bus is back after an early exit at UVic and will be an essential pillar in the Battle against the Brother…

Last Saturday the third CW team met the Uvic lads once again early Saturday morning and had an excellent run.
CW were able to put up a few more points than their counterparts on the day...with Kit Warren aka ''The Commissioner'' scoring three outstanding tries....from his backrow position.
The Uvic players were full value....young, strong and fit.
The game was played in the best of spirit.

While the Premier squad had a bye......the First Squad traveled to Nanaimo and played the Hornets. A solid win for CW with a score up in the 40's for CW. 80 minutes of rugby followed by another 30 mins of CW kick return practice ensured the lads benefited from the experience in both fitness and skills!

Preparations now begin for the upcoming First Div vs Comox game 1pm KO and the Premier vs Velox V team 2:45 KO, both games to be played at Velox V field. See you there.

CW at UVic.

Sunny skies, verdant pitch, healthy breeze, good crowd.............games on!
CW icon, Roger Robinson,declared the day as an historical event - the first time in his years of yonks that the club had fielded three senior teams on the same day! Apart from that, joyful moments were few and far between for the CW faithful at Wallace Field on Saturday.

Game #1 resulted in a 26 - 0 victory for CW. Highlights were a brace of tries by newcomer, Matt James and a single by that old War Horse - John Graf, a welcome returnee after years of doing it to us!

The second game kicked off with the students having a favourable wind and interspersing it cleverly with a mix of good hands. UVic #10 dictated the early stages (and much of the latter!), tries coming from a nifty chip kick and from the ball moving quickly through six pairs of hands. After twenty minutes CW trailed 0 - 12. UVic added another well-taken tally from a lineout drive, 19 - 0 at the half. The question was, would it be enou…

This is, in some positions, a new look Premier team. Coaches Spencer Robinson and Chris May have put together a solid squad for this first outing. Uvic, as always in the first fixture of the season, will test CW to the extreme. An exciting game will reward your attendance and boisterous CW support .
Come by also and support your 1pm First Division team. Several new faces join familiar CW stalwards who have been giving their all at training to p…

Cowichan lost to Incogs in the League Final at Beacon Hill, Victoria

Cowichan 102 for 9 in 45 overs (Dan Ferguson 18, Steve Mayall 16)

Incogs 104 for 5 in 37 overs (Louis Watson 2 for 28)

Cowichan batted cautiously from the start and could not raise the pace as wickets began to fall. Incogs' bowling and fielding were tight and none of our recognized batsmen were able to dominate. In reply, Incogs were 7 for 2 and 71 for 5, but that is as close as it came. On the day Cowichan were beaten by a better team. We wish Incogs well in the Tomalin Cup when they meet Meralomas (Vancouver champions) on Sept. 23.
On Sat. 16th. Sept. Cowichan play Albion I in the Knock-out Final, also at Beacon Hill. This is the last competitive match of the 2006 season.

Friends of CW;
It was with great sadness that I read of the passing of a wonderful rugby person, Maurice Lancaster, when I opened my daily TC today. Maurice gave much to the game, leading his legions of cadets (fondly labelled "Rodents" by many), from Royal Roads during his many years of teaching at the Academy. He always instilled the social nature of the game and respect for opposition into his players and it was a joy to experience the post-match festivities at Hatley Park. He also served time on the VIRU Executive for countless seasons. In recent times he has fought health issues but whenever he could, often during not the nicest day, he could be seen on the sidelines at Carnarvon or Windsor, offering his sage, yet respectful and provoking opinions on players and the game. Maurice's presence will be missed, as he grew to be a fair dinkum CW man and always a most respected gentleman. His time with us will be remembered at a memorial service next Tuesday, September …

We have a player joining CW from Newfoundland and from Sept 4th we need a bed//room for him until we can hook him up with another player in an apartment.
May be for a few weeks in Sept therefore.
Anyone out there with a bit of space and interest in this fellow, Cairn Hearn (playing position in the backs).
Even a camper set up in the yard or driveway would work.

Please let me know and thanks for the consideration in advance.
