BCrugby3smVancouver, BC (ISN) - The reigning Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League champions Oak Bay Castaway Wanderers RFC recorded their fourth straight bonus point victory on Saturday, running in eight tries to down Abbotsford RFC 36-17.

James Bay Athletic Association were winners over historic rivals Meraloma Rugby Club, and Capilano RFC snapped Burnaby Lake's undefeated run in Premier competition. 

Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League - Sat. February 18th: 

Meraloma Rugby Club 10(+1) - 16 James Bay AA 

Abbotsford RFC 14 - 36(+1) Castaway Wanderers RFC 

Capilano RFC 28 - 8 Burnaby Lake Rugby Club 

UVic Vikes 25(+2) - 26(+1) UBCOB Ravens 

Castaway Wanderers 36, Abbotsford 17
The Castaway Wanderers (4-1-1) went top of the table with an eight try victory over Abbotsford RFC (0-5), downing the Fraser Valley outfit 36-17. CW speedster Mike Scholz marked his return from national team duty with the Canadian sevens team with an impressive two try performance. Tries were also notched by Toby Peyton, Ken Goodland, Kyle Armstrong, Mike Pletch, Johnny Morris and Pita Savea. Paul Buckley kicked three converts for CW. Brodie Henderson and Some Mosegau both recorded tries for Abbotsford and both scores were converted by Chris Pack. CW will look to hold down top spot next week when they host cross-town rivals James Bay in the 2012 Battle of the Bays at Windsor Park.  

James Bay 16, Meraloma 10 (+1)
In a defensive standoff that featured just two tries, James Bay (5-1) recorded all of their 16 points in the opening half, eventually defeating Meralomas (1-4-1) by a score of 16-10. Former Canadian international Dave Moonlight scored James Bay's only try, which was converted by Sean White. Canadian Sevens national team player Connor Braid tacked on another nine points with three conversions. The Meralomas (1-4-1) are now 13 points back of the Bays in the standings and will have a tough time chasing down the top four teams. BC senior men's provincial team standout Bryan Tyrer scored all the Lomas' points notching a try, conversion and a penalty. The Lomas will be disappointed with the loss but securing a bonus point could prove crucial, come time for the playoffs. 

UBCOB Ravens 26(+1), UVic Vikes 25(+2)
The UBCOB Ravens (2-4) left it late on Saturday to down the UVic Vikes (1-5) by a score of 26-25. Ravens winger Nick Waggott broke through in the final play of the game to score. With no time left on the clock, UVic alumnus and Rugby World Cup standout Ed Fairhurst slotted the conversion to see his side secure the narrow victory. The Vikes come away with two bonus points but continue to slide in the standings, failing to win a match since the winter break. The Ravens are still ten points shy of a playoff berth, and will look to close in on fourth place Burnaby Lake. Next Saturday, the Ravens are at home to Meraloma at Jericho Park. 

Capilano 28, Burnaby Lake 8
North Shore outfit Capilano RFC (5-1) avenged their only loss of the season on Saturday, downing Burnaby Lake Rugby Club (4-1) by a score of 28-8. Burnaby had thumped the Caps 25-0 back on January 28th, shocking the reigning Lower Mainland champions. Capilano are on the road next week against Abbotsford, while Burnaby head to the Island to face off against the UVic Vikes.
