It was a long and wet day but it was worth it for our U18 Piggies, who beat Capilano 23-3 at Stanley Park’s Brockton Oval last Sunday, to set up a championship showdown against Island rivals Castaway Wanderers this coming weekend.

The team features a mix of local Cowichan Valley kids, Shawnigan and Brentwood students, as well as kids from Nanaimo and Gabriola Island.  The distribution of players has made it difficult to train as a group consistently but the boys have found a way to work together to produce results.

Cowichan will face Castaways in the BC Rugby Championship game this Sunday at Windsor Park in Oak Bay. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m.

The match will be preceded by a Mini Rugby exhibition featuring the U10 and U12 Piglets against Castaway Wanderers.

Junior Girls – BCRU Bronze Medalist

Congratulations to our U-18, U-16 & U-14 Girls in their wins over in Abbotsford last weekend to take 3rd place in BC.  After a season with no girls rugby in the Cowichan Junior program, the girls came back en masse, and with U-14 & U-16 players (a club 1st) in the program.

Big thanks to coaches Sherry Spence & Kristy Martin-Hale for leading these amazing young athletes this season.  Good luck to all the girls on your various high school teams this spring.   Look forward to seeing you again in June with Tsunami Rugby and next September for our fall season. 

Spread the word. The Girls in Black & Green are back!

U16 Boys @ UBCOB Ravens – BCRU Final

Our U-16 Boys will play at UBCOB Ravens this weekend in the BC Rugby Union U-16 Boys Championship game.

If you’re looking for a road trip this Sunday, Darren, Marvin & the boys would love to have some support from the Piggie Nation.

Good luck boys, play with Piggie Pride!
