Prems Write-up Sat May 7th 2016
Wanderers v.s. TMR (Pre-season)

The Wanderers and Town of Mont Royal “turf war” continued in a pre-season friendly match on Saturday, May 7th, that was anything but amicable. The slide line buzzed with excited as the Baby Blue took to the field (or was it just the drone?).

The Wanderers profited from a combination of fast hands through the backs, and fleet foot from winger Caleb Jordan for their first score in the corner. Not to be out shined, blind wing Fast Freddie Kacou exploited a scattered TMR backline defense to dash 60 yards for his first 5 points of the season.

Despite general Wanderer dominance, TMR managed to pull ahead with 3 devilish first half tries, including a well executed 8-9 blindside pick, and a line out maul.

But the rising Wanderers tide could not be stemmed in the second half.

After making another wide break, Fast Freddie generously brought the ball back inside to rookie outside centre Dimitri Bonkowski. With his trademark pace and physicality, Bonkowski mercilessly dispatched with his opposite number, and galloped in for the Wanderer’s fourth try.

After a nice break from newly christened back-row Jon “Pick-and-Go” Dextras to put TMR deep in their end, the Wanderers pack launched an unstoppable maul off the line-out, which ended with hooker Nicolas Ramirez flopping triumphantly in for the Wands fifth and final try.

The victory bodes well for the Wanderers first league game against Quebec City next Saturday, May 14th.


Freddie Kacou – 2 tries
Nicolas Ramirez – 1 try
Dimitri Bonkowski – 1 try
Caleb Jordan – 1 try
Remi – 4/5 conversions

Pre-Season Update: New arrivals and Renewed energy!

March 14, 2016

Hello Everyone!

Much to update so I am going to try to keep everything short and sweet!

We are into our 3rd week of pre-season training, every session has had 25-35 people in attendance, the energy is contagious with more and more men from ages 16-46 showing up every week! Our trainings in the Concordia Dome are particular rewarding as we are able to practice contact drills so early in the season allowing for many to get out some pent up winter blues.

We have a new arrival from England that is going to be joining the ranks of the Montreal Wanderers for the summer 2016 season, his name is Tom Lawson. (see his bio below). We’re all very excited to take young Tom under our family wing and make sure he enjoys his summer in Montreal and make an unforgettable experience for him. We have a welcome party scheduled for April 28th (mark your calendars more information to come!).

Tom Lawson
Age: 19
Position: Flyhalf.
Weight and Height: 88kg – 6 foot
Experience:  Durham County Colts, Durham County U20s, Newcastle Falcon Academy (Aviva Premiership team) Mowden Park RFC (National level 1).

All in all everyone is very excited for the upcoming year, we encourage all wanderers past and present to come out to any of our pre-season sessions going on now, the momentum really is special and would love to see as many faces out as possible, even if you don’t bring the cleats!


Matt Barazin.
