FNB UCT Ikeys Scored An Impressive Victory Over FNB Tuks


Ntokozo Makhaza was the star of the show as FNB UCT Ikeys scored an impressive 40-19 victory over defending champions FNB UP-Tuksat Green Mile Fields. For Tuks, it’s back to the drawing board after last week’s one-point defeat against FNB UFH Shimlas in Pretoria.

It took 12 minutes for the Ikey Tigers to break the deadlock when hooker Alex Castle went over after a successful driving maul by the home side’s forwards. Ten minutes later, the Tigers were starting to take control of the game thanks to a try by Jason MacLeod Smith with Makhaza’s boot adding the extras.

In the lead-up to half-time, UCT was running riot, adding two more tries with the scoreboard reading 29-0 at the break.

Tuks staged somewhat of a comeback at the start of the second half as they caught UCT napping. Outside centre Lincoln Daniels was rewarded with two tries while Pierre Fourie also dotted down.

It was the home side however who had the last say as Makhaza grabbed his second try of the match to take the score to 40-19 and secure a memorable victory.
