The Premier Women‘s Division has been exceptionally competitive thus far, with five of eight teams sporting winning records. There have also been some surprise upsets in recent weeks, which makes for some very compelling rugby. Mainland rivals Capilano and Burnaby Lake face off at Klahanie Park., while top ranked Seattle (6-1) are home to Cowichan (2-5-1). Second place Castaway Wanderers (6-2) are at SFU (0-6) , while Bayside (1-7) will have an opportunity to get back in the chase when they travel to UBC. All four games are set for Saturday at 11:30am.
In the Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League, the men from Capilano (1-0) and Seattle (1-1) both looked decisive on the attack last week, so expect high scoring rugby when they meet Saturday in West Vancouver. Burnaby Lake (1-0) will have a tough test at home against UBC (2-0), while James Bay (1-1) and Castaway Wanderers (0-1) renew rivalries at Windsor Park. Rowers (0-1) travel around English Bay to Jericho Park to face the Ravens (0-1). Both teams are vying for their first win of the campaign. Kickoffs for all four games are set for Saturday at 2:30pm.
Other notable fixtures include a neutral venue matche between Women’s Division 1 sides Abbotsford and Kamloops (in Chilliwack), while a middle-of- the-tables contest between Meraloma and Langley could eventually prove to have major playoff implications in the Men’s Okanagan Spring Brewery League.
