Grade 9 Rugby

Oct 01, '13

The skill level and grit has vastly improved in the very brief period of time we have been playing together on the Grade 9 Rugby team. I remember in the first encounter against Shawnigan Lake School, we where all very anxious and slightly afraid to have to play against these “recruited rugby stars” (as some called them). The moment the...

Junior Boys Rugby

Jul 15, '13

In keeping with the new school mantra, and also to keep Boss Bud happy, I should probably start by saying that the boys in this year’s junior program showed grit. It would be more accurate to say that the boys showed grit the majority of the time, but unfortunately not when Mr. Patel came to watch their matches. We can only blame Mr. Patel. In...

Second XV Tops Kelsey

Apr 08, '13

On Thursday, April 4th, Brentwood’s Second XV Rugby team battled against Frances Kelsey’s First XV on Gillespie Field. Despite poor weather conditions, Brentwood managed to come out with the victory. Counter-rucking, powerful scrums, and well-timed plays from the lads led to many breaks through the opposition’s defensive line. By half-time...

Rugby in Any Language

Nov 19, '12

On Wednesday we played once again against St Georges School. We went to their school in Vancouver and gave our best effort, but sadly the score wasn’t in our favor.

We knew we hadn’t as much experience as them but we still played without fear; we made some good tackles and improved our scrums by winning almost all of them.

We...

Rugby, Reds and Blacks

Nov 06, '12

Brentwood’s Grade 9 Rugby team squared off against Saint George's on Saturday. Our team was smaller than usual; we were missing a few players. With only 1 or 2 subs, nearly every person on the team played the entire game, however we still held our ground and nobody complained. Rain had started just before the game did, and it continued throughout,...

Rugby in the Rain

Nov 02, '12

Thrilling excitement was everywhere as we got ready to play SMUS a second time. We got a rematch against SMUS!
Unfortunately, we did not win, but we did have a ton of fun at our first away game. We had done a great job improving many of our skills since our first game. We did a lot better in our scrums and we did a way better job passing...

Grade 9 Rugby Cuts Teeth on Blue Jags

Oct 19, '12

I wonder if the rest of the Grade 9 boys were feeling the way that I was on Tuesday, October 9 as we hurried up to the rugby field for our game against St. Michaels University School. All morning I had been feeling nervous and apprehensive. For me, as well as most of the team, this was our first rugby game ever.

The game was a hard...
