Piggies set to honour 96/97 champs

Cowichan play host to Castaway Wanderers Saturday while honouring a legendary Cowichan rugby side from 19 years ago.

After a dominant 46-0 win over the Comox Kickers in exhibition action last weekend, the Cowichan Piggies are hoping to replicate the effort this Saturday when they play host to Castaway Wanderers while honouring a legendary Cowichan rugby side from 19 years ago.

Comox showed up with just 13 players last Saturday, while the Piggies had their biggest turnout of the year with 28 on hand, including some making their first appearances of the season. James Patterson led the Cowichan onslaught with three tries.

This weekend, with the 1996/97 Premier League champion Cowichan Piggies being inducted into the North Cowichan/Duncan Wall of Fame, the current edition of the team is looking for a win over Castaways in a Times Cup fixture at Piggy Park.

The First Division men will face off against Castaways at

1 p.m., immediately following the

11:30 a.m. game between the Premier women’s side and Burnaby Lake.

A luncheon to honour the 1996/97 champs will take place after the First Division match.
