Ravens at Klahanie plus two 3 Div games with Brit-Lions
It was a full slate of Men’s Rugby at Klahanie today.
It is good to see the Brit-Lions fielding two sides. Hopefully they will advance and get back into the higher divisions in the future.
The 3A game: The Capilanos are leading the league with a powerful 3A side that is working very hard. Today Caps played a Brit/Lion side with some size and potential. The pitch was in decent shape considering the recent rains and the rain stopped just prior to the kickoff and the sun even peaked through occasionally. The weather was far better than the predictions and it made for a fairly open game. Caps opened the scoring with a try by Matt Plant after others made several previous attempts to cross the line. The convert was missed and in fact only one try was converted today. Caps also missed on their PK attempts. Brad Whiteman made it 10 to 0 with a nice finish. Brad scores a lot but today he lost several balls in contact while trying his Rudolf Nureyer, Russian Dance moves! Austin Karius scored a couple of nice tries for Caps and shows much potential. He makes some mistakes as all young players do but I like the way he gets into the game. To me he shows lots of promise for the future. I like the spirit shown by this Capilano side and their veteran leadership. Brit/Lions are not pushovers and showed some promise also. They did score a try and had several other opportunities. The final score was 37-5. Continue »
