Brentwood Led Piggies Win Provincials

Jan 05, '17

The Cowichan Piggies and the Castaway Wanderers faced off under a cold December sun for the provincial championship. As this was our first meeting since an extremely close contest early in the season, neither team knew quite what to expect, but both were prepared for their toughest game yet. Frozen fingers and plenty of nerves made for a slow...

Brentwood-Cowichan Rugby Fusion

Dec 03, '16

Rugby is a difficult game. Filled with counter-intuitive rules and opposite sides making physical contact with force and strength, it is surprising that anyone plays this sport at all. Yet Brentwood always sees many boys sign up to play three times a week, and for the second year there is a group of nine which has decided that three days just...

Junior Colts Rugby

Oct 12, '16

The Grade 8/9 rugby team hosted a Shawnigan Lake School squad for a practice scrimmage on Tuesday, and showed how far they have come in a short time.

Colts Rugby

Jul 28, '16

The Colts had their most successful season in recent memory. It started in March with a nine-try rout of St. George’s, then gained momentum during a tour of England & Wales. Overseas, they competed bravely in all of their matches, and returned harder and smarter. The obvious highlights are the results: the Colts beat Shawnigan, St. George’s, Oak...

Junior Boys Rugby

May 27, '16

Most seasons, the Junior Boys Rugby team is intimidated by one team: the Shawnigan Lake Stags. That yellow jersey has long struck fear into the hearts of our players. This was no ordinary season. This year’s team was having an outstanding term of rugby, going nearly perfect in league games, defeating the likes of St. George’s, SMUS, Oak Bay,...

A Colossal Comeback

Apr 27, '16

On the pleasant Tuesday afternoon of April 26, the Junior Boys Rugby team had an underwhelming start to their game against Oak Bay High. We started off very rusty on defence and were missing tackle after tackle until finally we got tired of being embarrassed and we gained intensity and technique. Our defence got tighter after some motivation...

Amid the sunbathers, eight senior boy rugby teams from across Canada descended on Brentwood as the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) tournament took place.
