EGREP pattern advice

I need advice on a simiple pattern check,

Orginal Code

bpimagelist -backupid xxxxxxxxxxxxx  | grep "FRAG " | egrep -i "C5|W5" | awk 'NR==1{print $2,$9}

1 MAC514

What i want is to find any media beinging with C5|W5. I have tried ^C5|^W5, but this does not work.

Removed the awk 'NR==1

 bpimagelist -backupid xxxxxxxxxxxxx | grep "FRAG " | egrep -i "C5|W5" | awk '{print $2,$9}'
1 MAC514
1 MAC514
2 W5A716

Can you tell me how can modify the egrep pattern, to only check for ^C5|^W5.
So i should get = 2 W5A716
