Over the long weekend, the B's travelled to Courtenay for an exhibition match. After enjoying the night life of the Comox Valley on Saturday night, Sunday's game got off to a slow start. With a number of former Velox players on the Courtenay squad, and no less than five players on the Velox squad originally from Courtenay, the match was aggressive but friendly.
Tries for Velox came from Colin, Aaron "where's my watch" Akehurst, Craig, Andy, and myself (my apologies if I've missed anyone). We aren't entirely sure of the final score, but I think we won based on conversions, thanks to Sean's kicking. Man of the match went to Jr, who put on a show in the open side flanker position.
We'll have a rematch on November 14th, when the Kickers make the trip down to Victoria.
The B's and the women both have byes this weekend, so the only match for Velox is the A's vs the Pride in the Premier division. It will be Sunday, at Velox, with a 2:45pm kick off. We have co-existed with the Pride for years now, but this will be the first time Velox has ever played them. (Correction we played them when we where in premier.) Don't miss this one!
I'm having an extra session for the B's that day, starting at noon. We'll train for a bit, play some games (maybe 7's?), then watch the premier game.
The Velox website is undergoing some changes. As of today the site is located at veloxrugby.com. You won't notice any differences right away, but our new hosting provides a lot more disc space, which means that we'll be able to post a lot more content and oodles of pictures.
A special thanks goes to Paul Belley at NetComp Solutions (a local web design and hosting company www.netcomp.ca). Paul has generously donated his time and disc space to Velox.
