A Clean Sweep for the Caps

The Third Division playing on the road defeated Ridge meadows 33-10 today.  The game was supposed to be out in the Valley but I believe it was switched to Brockton Oval according to the game sheet.  The sheet came in sideways and my neck is strained trying to look at it.  I also don’t know who scored but congratulations to the Capilano 3 As on a bounce back game after a mediocre losing effort last week at Rowing Club.  We all knew that you were better than that performance and today you proved it.  Next week you play again at home at Klahanie.  Congratulations to the players and coaches!!

An Open Letter to all Capilanos

posted by Jan-Christian Sorensen

As a former member of the Capilano RFC, and lifelong player with other rugby clubs in BC, I would like to take this opportunity of the changing of the guard on the executive of the Capilano Club to make an observation from the perspective of an outsider……..well sorta….”Once a Capilano always a Capilano”

The Caps have come a long way since I left the North Shore in 1978 when the clubhouse was a second story walk-up and on any given weekend there were games spread over the landscape. Continue »

Capilano weekend recap for Nov. 15

Rowing Club hosts Caps:

The games today might not have been played due to a partly frozen field.  Brockton gets quite a bit of sunshine but one shady part was frozen and questionable. We must give credit to referee Gerry Clayton who checked out the field, discussed the problem with both sides and came up with a plan.  The south west corner would be avoided if possible.  Scrums and line outs in that area would be moved to the other side.  Some referees would have cancelled the game but Gerry worked it out and it was an enjoyable rugby game. Well done Gerry!
