The Comox Valley Kickers RFC celebrated the historic 2023/2024 rugby season this past Saturday for the highly anticipated year-end awards banquet hosted at the Comox Legion, located above our sponsor, the Beaufort Ave Pub.

A standout moment of the evening came with a performance of Smash Mouth’s “All Star” by the men’s rookies done with inspiration from Shakespeare, adding a unique and unforgettable flair to the festivities.

History Made: Comox Valley Kickers Clinches Senior Club Rugby Championships in Women’s and Men’s Divisions

The Comox Valley Kickers RFC experienced a historic weekend, clinching not just one but two championships in two closely contested and hard-fought matches.

Ged Griffiths Cup comes to the Comox Valley for the first time The BCRU Senior Club Finals started with a clash between the top two ranked teams in Women’s Division 2. Spectators, both in person and those viewing via live stream, were treated to an electric game of rugby, with moments of brilliance from both sides lighting up the field. From the first whistle, the Comox Valley Kickers and United RFC engaged in fierce battles for possession and territory. As the game unfolded, it became evident that neither side was willing to cede ground easily, resulting in most of the game being played predominantly between each team’s 22-metre lines for much of the first half. Inside Centre, Danelle Campbell scored the first try for the Kickers by chasing down a short penalty kick attempt which Fullback Cali McKay then converted. United quickly answered back with a converted try of their own. United managed to edge ahead by halftime scoring another try, only for the Kickers to stage a spirited comeback in the second half. Winger Sienna Stigant tied the game up with a burst down the sideline. With the match finely poised at 12-12 heading into the final minutes, the Kickers delivered the decisive blow that would shatter United’s dreams...
