1st Division Men 38 – Comox 5 (Exhibition)

The Piggies left the Warmland and traveled up to the torrential rainland of Cumberland to play the Comox Kickers on October 1st.

The game was played in close.  The Piggies used this exhibition match as an opportunity to practice some new things and play people in new positions.  As there is no active 3rd Division on the Island at the moment, and Comox isn’t yet ready for 1st division, it was important for North Island Rugby that this game took place.  This was Comox’s first game this season and they played it with heart and hardness and acted as gracious hosts afterwards.  

Cowichan Scorers:

Jenner Teufel:  1 penalty, 5 converts

Peyton Eagar:  3 tries 

Seth Davis:  1 try

Drew McCarthy:  1 try

Rugby resumes with a big home game home against the Port Alberni Black Sheep this weekend, October 15th.  The Sheep sit in 2nd place in Times Cup play with a 2-1 record. The Piggies sit in 4th with a 1-2 record and need a win (preferably with a bonus point) to close ground on the league leaders. 

Next Game:  October 15 hosting Port Alberni Black Sheep, 1:00 pm k/o

U16 Boys

Finally able to fill a full side and a few extra bodies, the U16 boys faced a strong Ravens side who shot to an early lead due to some crafty running from their #10 and eventual man of the match.

Cowichan rebounded at times with some well connected phases and drew last blood but eventually fell short 69-21, their first lost of the season.

Cowichan Scorers:

Jamin Hodgkins:  3 converts

Jacob Bossi: 1 try

Nick Joe: 1 try

Matt McDougall: 1 try

The boys now sit 3rd in the league with a few games left before playoffs.

Next game:  October 16 hosting James Bay, 1:00 pm k/o

Junior Girls

After a great starting weekend, the Junior girls traveled to the north island for another series of jamborees October 2nd.  The U14 girls travelled all the way to Campbell River, the U16 & U18 girls made the trip to Comox.  

It’s really exciting to see Junior Girls rugby thriving on the Island!  The jamboree format a is a great formula for young players to get game experienced in a controlled environment.  

We look forward to seeing this program grow!

Mini Rugby

The littlest Piggies had their first jamboree of the season October 2nd in Campbell River.  The Campbell River Rugby Club did a great job hosting the Mini’s and have posted some really neat drone videos of the event.  Check out those videos on the Campbell River Rugby Club YouTube page
