Crusaders earn respect from Scribes

Taking on the top dog in their rugby league, Chilliwack's Crusaders gave East Van's Scribes their toughest test of the season.

Chilliwack’s rugby Crusaders faced a titanic task last Saturday as they hosted East Vancouver’s Scribes RFC.

The visitors came in undefeated, with 40 points their average margin of victory and not a single point surrendered this season. The Crusaders held the Scribes at bay in the opening half with solid positioning and tackling.

The Scribes were only able to score three points to lead 3-0 at the break.

The Scribes broke through in the second half, using their height advantage in lineouts. Defensive miscues led to two Scribe tries and an 18-3 final.

Solomon Puckey picked up Chilliwack’s points on a penalty kick, and the Scribes left with a little more respect for the rebuilding Crusaders.

The locals travel to Surrey this weekend and are always looking for new players. All ages and experience levels are welcome. Visit for more information.
