FNB UP-Tuks Stumble To An Impressive Win Against FNB CUT Ixias


FNB UP-Tuks secured a much need win of 61-12 against a hapless CUT Ixias last night in Pretoria.

In perfect playing conditions, Tuks was in complete control from the start. Unfortunately, the good work of their forwards was undone time after time when the quality ball they worked for was simply wasted by a backline that could not even make the easiest of passes nor catches on their way to unopposed tries. I stopped counting at 12 tries which was wasted due to bad handling and decision making by the backs of Tuks.

FNB UP-Tuks 61 (33) – Tries: Ethan Burger, Divan Venter (1x5, 1x7), Kabelo Mokoena, Stephen Smit, Tharquinn Manuel (1x7), Werner Fourie, Orateng Koikanyang, Mihlali Stamper (1x7). Conversions: Clyde Lewis (2), Walter Visser (3).
FNB CUT Ixias 12 (7) – Tries: Jan Kotze, Matthew Sekele. Conversion: Zinedene Booysen.
