Remembrance Day Weekend: CW Defeat Westshore in BC Premier and UVic Put 90+ on Calgary in University Championship Qualifier

CW ran in 6 tries on the way to a comfortable 34-7 win over Westshore. The win puts CW in 9th place with 13 points and a 2-5 record. Westshore drop to 11th place with 11 points and a 2-4 record. Next weekend Westshore host the Pacific Pride while CW travel to the Rowers.

In the men's University Championship qualifying match to fill the West #2 position, it was UVic thumping the University of Calgary by a score of 92-14. UBC will take the West #1 spot and UVic West #2. The tournament takes place Nov 20-24 at Concordia University in Montreal.

It's quiet on the rugby front for the Remembrance Day weekend and we've given the prediction crew the week off until next weekend (Week 9 of the BC Premier).

CW host Westshore (2:30pm) in a game that was postponed from earlier in the season. Some players from both teams will be pulling double duty on Sunday when they line up for a 7s warmup against Canada and the Pacific Pride. For CW that will be scrum half Brandon Schellenberger and outside centre Sion Griffiths, for Westshore it will be #8 Peyton Eagar and outside centre Spencer Jones. Jake Ilnicki comes back into CW colours for a spot on the bench and big Mike Finnemore returns at #8. Players will be wanting to impress selectors for the January VIRU Tide trip to take on Seattle Seawolves in Seattle - part of the two time MLR champion Seattle Seawolves' preseason preparation. CW is missing James Pitblado at #10 and Fergus Hall moves from fullback to try his hand at first five-eighths. For Westshore prop Bryce McKinnon has been getting some attention from selectors and has been training with the Pacific Pride. A couple of beefy blasts from the past feature on the bench, Sanaila Dawai and Ryan Waldriff, top players from the days Westshore played on the sandy pitch at Velox. It should be an entertaining match with both teams needing a win and sitting in the bottom half of the standings.

Meanwhile over in Abbotsford, at Rotary Stadium (1pm) the University Championship Qualifier takes place between CanWest champs Calgary Dinos and the UVic Vikes. The winner will represent West #2 at the championship tournament in Montreal later this month. UBC have already claimed the West #1 position. It will be a good test to see if the Alberta universities have closed the gap on the top unis in the country. UVic have been a Top 3 finisher at the nationals the last two years.
