If anyone is able to offer a bed for three weeks in January it would be great.
Nigel Thompson from PEI and Will Shaw from Nova Scotia are both coming out to play with CW. They arrive January 10th.
Given the work situation in town I'm confident they will be working quickly and able to find an apartment etc. But for the first two or three weeks it would be great for them to have a place ''to land'' and get to know the town a bit.

Any help would be appreciated...let me know, thanks.

Also new News info and the second half game schedule are now up on the CW web site at www.cwrugby.com

Hope you have a Happy New Year.

It was another case of promising so much but delivering so little when CW attended yet another clinic from UVic on the art of using possession by passing at pace, resulting in the club's fourth loss to the students this season. The CW supporters came out in strength for their final fix of 06 but left, there being no joy in Mudville, discussing both the officiating and play of the Ones. Finding themselves down 10 - 5 at the half CW re-entered the fray with vigor and were the first to score, bringing the deficit to two. The parade then errupted and even the insertion of Coach Robinson, failed to stem the tide............. five yellow cards and 43 points later, UVic were the victors by a scoreline of 41 - 20.
For UVic, there were many quality efforts, #'s 7, 8, 3, 9, 15, 14 and 22...names deserved to be mentioned but more importantly, it was an attitude that had the Norse with a territorial advantage throughout, a commitment to defence and an alertness to take quick ad…

The Festive Season kicks of for CW fans this Saturday when the Firsts seek to keep their playoff hopes for the Times Colonist Cup alive, taking on the league leading Norsemen in semi-final action at UVic. This game kicks off at 2:30 at UVic's Wallace Field. CW will be seeking some measure of revenge when, as underdogs they take on the Norse, many of the players on both teams having played two weeks ago in the Barnard Cup match at Windsor. League scoring leader, James Carson captains the Ones. The team welcomes the return of Beaulac and look for centre Kevin Carr to put in another strong one. The back row of James, Middleton and Alexander will be key to the outcome of this match.

Following the game at Discovery Sports Club, Ken Goodland has organised a Christmas Darts Fiesta, where for a $10 entry fee you will be elligible for BIG prizes. It will be a random draw with double elimination. There will also be a CW Trivia Contest on Saturday.........in all, a great evening at The …

Hi All,
This is to inform you of a darts tournament being held at the clubhouse this saturday after the 1st division playoff game. It is open to supporters as well as players and there will be a money prize (depending on numbers of course). It's a 10$ entry fee and that includes some refreshments as well. Please let me know if your interested as soon as you can, I plan to do the draw tomorrow night. It will be a random draw and a double elimination so everyone has two chances. It promises to be a fun evening as there is a CW trivia contest the same night. A set of ten questions with all the answers being found on the walls of the clubhouse, save for a couple which can be found by picking the brains of some supporters or educated guesses. This part is mainly for the players so they get to know the history of the club and learn more about you guys who have paved the way. Hope to see some of you there. Cheers
Kenny

Now is the time to debut that sweater and wear it with pride.

So grab your fellow team mates and that crazy "Christmas Sweater" and come down to the club for some Christmas fun!!!
