BC Rugby Mentor Coaching Series featuring current Wallaby International, Matt Dunning

posted Dec 2 2005
BCRU press release

The British Columbia Rugby Union invites you to an evening with Wallaby Prop Matt Dunning. This is the first in a series of BCRU Mentor Coach evenings. It will be an opportunity for all players, referees and coaches to interact with a player involved at the very highest levels of the game.
Although Matt has appeared in a Rugby World Cup Final, he is probably best known as brother to Canada’s own Casey and Josh Dunning of the Men’s National and U21 teams respectively! And current Premier players with the Castaway Wanderers RFC .

After making his Test debut in the Rugby World Cup against Namibia and then coming on as a replacement in the Final against England, Matt Dunning went on to play in 11 of the 12 Tests in 2004, as a replacement at either loosehead or tighthead prop.

Bursting onto the Super 12 scene with some individual brilliance in 2001 and 2002, Dunning…

HELLO ALL,
I was wondering if there was interest in the annual X-mas lunch down at the club friday the 16th noon start. It is all you can eat and drink for 35.00. The food is roast beef with all the fixing's and 2 kegs of beer to wash it down with. I need to know if there is enough people who want to go. Once you sign up thats it no backing out you still have to pay.


All money just like past years goes straight to the Rugby club.
PLease Email me if you want to go guidodanger@hotmail.com before Friday so i can make a decision about the lunch.


Thanks again!
Guido

Unfortunately the Div 1 CW lost a hard fought contest in the Semi finals last Saturday. 5 -3 for JBAA. So the Div 1 Squad does not have a final game this Saturday.

The Elite/Premier team does however have a semi final playoff match vs Uvic at Carnarvon Park this Saturday...2:30 KO.
Keep your eyes out on the TC Sports Events section in the TC newspaper Saturday morning (and your email) for confirmation of field...we are currently scheduled for Carnarvon, subject to weather not being a problem for the field.

Thanks from all the Lads for you support vs JBAA last Saturday....a tough one for us all. Hope to turn it around for you this Saturday vs Uvic.

Castaway Wanderers 23 JBAA 26.
In the words of charismatic Yankee baseball player and manager, Yogi Berra, this was " Deja vu, all over again", as this classic cross- town rivalry mirrored the same characteristics, style, and result as the previous game held on October 22nd. Both victories were recorded in the dying minutes, and after one hundred and sixty minutes (plus) of genuine blood, sweat, and tears, five points eventually separated the teams, and collectively they had amassed 137 points. More often than not, it was trench warfare, followed by trench war fare, and more again of the same, but somehow the closeness and competitive nature of the contests became utterly absorbing.
There was an abundance of commitment and pride from both organizations, which was a credit to the players and officials alike. The man in the middle also deserves our thanks and congratulations, for this was a theatre of war that took no prisoners and refused to suffer fools gladly... It wo…

TO SUPPORTERS OF CW RUGBY

Friends:

I am writing to share a concern with you. After last Saturday’s game against U.Vic, I received a “Referee Abuse Report” from the match referee. There were a number of allegations in the report, however, the most disconcerting were those related to ongoing spectator comments throughout the game; culminating with those made after a penalty try was awarded, by the CW faithful about the referee being biased and dishonest.

Rugby is a difficult game to play and to referee, especially if an official is distracted. Referees are volunteers and like players, have to make instantaneous decisions and may not always have their “A game”. I need to inform you that there is a desperate shortage of referees in B.C. at present. It is not unreasonable to suggest that part of the reason for this shortage, is due to the “rubbishing” officials receive from the sidelines. A mistake by the referee does not give permission to shout aspersions about his objectivity. Everyo…

Castaway Wanderers 24 UVic 18
The fields of Carnavon Park are not located in the most pastoral of settings, but as a pure rugby ground, it has very few equals in BC, in terms of length and width, the texture of the playing surface, and its natural flatness. This was the backdrop for the second meeting thisseason> between Castaway Wanderers and the University of Victoria. Bragging rights alone were at stake, as both had qualified for the Premier League as far back as Mid October, which, along with the demands of the democratic process and calls of Municipal elections, may well have accounted for the unusually poor attendance. The ongoing calls of our National XV and 7's Teams continue to compounded the problems for many Clubs, as both squads were again badly depleted (Uvic losing 7 starters and CW 8 starters). This unfortunate overall reduction in quality, clearly draws our attention to the need for a serious review of scheduling fornext season - a schedule …

Received this e-mail from a good friend, former Canadian Rep, Daryl Noulette. Daryl is in the process of pushing Fox Sports to increase the amount of rugby programs. He has spoken with an employee who has assured him that an e-mail requesting increased coverage to ewolfe@globaltv.ca from as many fans as possible, has the potential to do increase the amount of rugby aired. I think that this is a case of "nothing ventured, nothing gained", so hope that you might take the time to write a "quickie". All you need now is Channel 113!!

Remember, the Premiers are at Cowichan this Sunday - always a good mini-roadie.

See you on the sidelines - Macca

While the Prems got the awful weather, the CW Firsts benefited from a dryer, faster, field earlier on Saturday at Gordon Head Field.
CW Firsts 46 Port Alberni 3.
The team Captained by David Fairhurst pulled together as a strong unit very well on the day which is a positive direction for the lads to continue.
Pete Rob was a standout throughout the game with his aggressive play even though he was carrying several knocks and bruises. Two young number 9's in 'WeeMan' and 'Fat Jonny' continue to perform like lions. Jonny Morris (two tries on the day!) rewarded with a try following a great individual effort.
Tony LaCarte at number 10 performed well and showed it is a solid option for him as his rugby progresses.
Josh Dunning returned from his summer broken ankle to the delight of the CW lads and put in a powerful performance......obviously a lot more to come from this fine young player. Joseph Atalifo scored his first try for the CW Club.
Once again thanks go out from al…

CW vs Velox.
CW travelled "crosstown" last Saturday to take on new kids, Velox, a team who has proven to be a thorn to CW for the four games played between the clubs since Velox's promotion to the 'Bigs'. The weather threatened to be play quite a role in the outcome, apart from the fact that both sides were somewhat less than being at full strength.
In the early going, CW made two forrays into the Velox half, coming away with points on both occasions. Scott, 'The Bus' Franklin notching another patented tally. Velox, courageous in defence but lacking imagination in attack, failed to post any points during a ten-minute encampment on the CW goal line. Declining to accept any of the penalty kicks that they were awarded and opting for a series of lineouts instead, the home team failed to use the gale force wind to any advantage. Finally, scoring leader, Ple…

While perhaps not filled with the historical significance of NZ vs Wales Nov 5th...you do have some local, in person, great rugby to take in on Saturday.
CW Firsts will play Port Alberni ko at 1pm Velox field in Gordon Head. (across from Mt. Doug School). Yes, this game will be played at Velox....the weather is cooperating (if heavy rains come we'll email you if there is a location change).

Followed at 2:45 by the Elite game of the day...CW vs Velox...Velox field. This should prove to be a great rematch following the 31 31 tie earlier this season.

At mid match the Velox U12's will have a run against the CW U12.....several very good young players to come see....and loudly cheer on...... at half time.

Under sunny skies...yes, no rain, just sun today....the Firsts had a grand day vs Comox RFC who were great lads, driving many hours to get in a game at Windsor Park.
The Comox team is to be commended for their combination of junior and senior players; for their exciting neversaydie play; and for their rugby sportsmanship.....may their Club program flourish for many seasons to come.
CW 29 Comox 7

The CW stepped up again in the front row...with several lads away or unavailable for other reasons.....Josh Handysides proved his ''rugby flexibility'' once again and took a few stitches to boot! (although no ''boot'' was involved) Guido showed up to prop if and when needed for CW...and he was needed, well done Guido. Even Dean Parchumchuk go into the front row act...and at 6' 5" he was a sight to see squeezed in up front.
Chris Horsely, working on his skills pre Bermuda trip, put in a few good minutes....as did a couple of young CW's Riis and Johnny…

James Bay Athletic Association 36 Castaway Wanderers 32

Nobody needed a manicure after this hard fought struggle at MacDonald Park! All nails were nibbled to the quick by nearly one thousand enthusiastic supporters of both sides. Scott Franklin burst through the JBAA defence following a lineout to score early in the game giving thoughts of victory to CW fans. He made it look easy, but tougher times were ahead. The boys in blue bounced back with two – if not attractive – well-worked pushover tries. The James Bay forwards were the difference in this encounter. After each phase of attractive running and passing rugby, the JBAA pack were able to slow the game down and gather themselves for a further engagement of ‘trench warfare’. Another break by Franklin sent Nathan Buckley over for a try which was converted by Chuck Baumberg. Sipili Molia split the JBAA defence with a sparkling run that put Tony LaCarte into the endzone for five points. The opposition replied with a kick ahead that was mishandled and resulted in a try for James Ba…

Fans, friends, CW Rugby;
Firstly welcome to a number of new names that we have been able to add to our e-communication this week. Many of you are alumni of either Castaways or Wanderers, we welcome you to the CW family with apologies that we have not communicated before. We also welcome the CW Minis Family - parents of the 116 girls and boys we have registered between the ages of seven and fourteen in our weekly program at Windsor.

This Saturday at McDonald Park in James Bay the CW Sr First Division and Ellite teams do battle against James Bay at 1:00 p.m. and 2:45 p.m. James Bay lead the League in both Divisions although CW Ellites are also undefeated. Many of the Provincial pundits have suggested that the Bays will fight out the title with Capilano this season, an on-line poll seems to give little credit to CW having any say in this matter as well. CW will be fielding four National team players who will be doing battle against France and Rumania in two week's time and they, alo…

Castaway Wanderers v. Cowichan Saturday 15th October at Windsor Park.
After a two week lay-off it was most important that CW would quickly get down to the business of preparing for the upcoming local derby fixture against James Bay next Saturday. This was probably unfortunate for Cowichan who may have hoped to enjoy the glorious condition of the sun- drenched turf of Windsor Park with a competitive afternoon of ‘Elite Division’ rugby.

In fact Cowichan did not ever flinch from the task of defending bravely against what became a tsunami of fifteen tries from the well-drilled CW team. Their number eight, Barrie was conspicuous in defence with an exciting touchline tackle on Ken Goodland. Every tackle made by the ‘Green Piggies’ (as they are known in the Valley of the Sun) was thwarted by deft handling of the ball from man to man by their opposition. However any meaningful attack by the visitors was absent.

Scott Franklin led the CW scorers with four tries and was clearly hard to br…

Club Dues

CLUB "DUES."Many people have been asking about annual "dues". These memberships are for the Discovery Sports Club, not CWRFC and cost $80. The funds go the the upkeep of the Clubhouse (the social heart of any rugby side), events for members, etc.. Ian Jones will be at the game on Saturday collecting Social dues. He will be located in the pavilion during the half-time of both Firsts and Premiers. Cash, cheque or Credit card accepted.>Clubhouse hours are posted on the DSC website at www.discoverysportsclub.com. There is usually a fire in the hearth and a cold pint after the games. We would love to see you there.

Friends and fans of CW Rugby;

Make a note on your calendar NOW!!! Saturday 15th our first Alumni Booster Luncheon. We've organised for 10% off baron of beef at The Penny. So beer and baron it is. Arrive around 11:30 for pre-game Guiness and we'll have some of our new players to drop in to meet you on their way to the Park. Meander down to support The Firsts in their efforts to conquer the Valleymen from Cowichan. The Premiers will be out to set the record straight about what it is they can really do when they are at full strength. Cowichan has certainly been creating some waves in their resurgence and full credit to them. We will also be making a special presentation to our major sponsor, Matt McNeill around 12:30. Matt has been marvellous in his support of CW rugby. Spread the word amongst your old mates.....although we think that we have most of you on the e-list, better yet, bring along a non-rugby friend. The train is on a roll but we need your support. Happy Thanksgiving.
