Argentina made 108 all out (32.3 overs), breaking the century mark for the second game in a row, which is commendable for an emerging team.

Once again a repeat reminder that CW rugby is gearing up for an outstanding season. We have players returning and new players arriving....many looking for a place to stay. Maybe that is for a short time until they can get familiar with Victoria and find their own place....maybe for a longer time if you are looking to rent a place/room or know of a friend or neighbor.
So please think it over....good lads all.....and let me know if you are able to help the lads in some way.

Thanks for all your ongoing support.....07/08 shaping up to be a great season for all CW.
