Season Preview

1st Division Men

The 2017-2018 season will be a rolling start for the Club with the 1st division playing CW at Windsor Park this weekend.  The format of the season will look similar to previous seasons but with a couple significant differences:

  • Cross over matches with mainland teams, both home and away
  • A set schedule in place from September to May (online at www.cowichanrugby.ca/events)

Island rugby will look different this season with Nanaimo and Westshore making a run at the Premier Division.  There will be no mid-season relegation from the Premier competition in December as there has been over the last several years.  As such, the competition for 1st division only clubs like Cowichan (and Port Alberni) necessitated matches with mainland teams.  There will continue to be an Island 1st Division, Times Cup competition however, so the Piggies will face their Island rivals throughout the season.

1st Division Women

The women’s team will return to the 1st division competition this season owing to a significant shift in personnel.  The ladies begin their season next weekend and we will have more about the team and their season in next week’s Piggie Post.

Junior Rugby

Cowichan will have a full complement of junior sides this season, including the return of junior girls rugby.  Training has begun and competition schedules are slowly trickling in.  Please check back on our website, Facebook or Twitter @CRFCPiggies for updates.
