Grade 9 Rugby

Jan 08, '18

The Grade 9 Rugby team had a season of remarkable development. We assembled in early September, looking shaky and confused. Rugby is a game with many complications; it is played a certain way, except when it isn’t. Even the drills at practice demand movement foreign to most other athletes. Our contingent was diverse. We were skinny, we were...

Piggy Left, Piggy Left!

Dec 14, '17

The U18 Cowichan Piggies Rugby team was comprised mostly by Brentwood students this fall and we had a hard, but successful, season.

Girls Rugby Provincials

Aug 11, '17

We took a young, developing team to the BC Tournament in Abbotsford with no expectations except our 2017 mantra - get better every game. We thought it was important for all of the girls to play and Imisi A, our inspirational and selfless Captain, agreed. Our first game against Kamloops saw us score three tries in the first ten minutes as we were...

Girls Rugby

Jul 24, '17

It is not uncommon for girls to underestimate themselves. Whether this is because of a flaw in the fundamental values that girls are taught from a young age, or because of pop culture, I have confidence that rugby is something that has the power to change this. Girls should see themselves as individuals who are capable, confident, and...
