Varsity Cup – FNB UCT Ikeys Crushed FNB UWC


The Chester Williams Memorial Trophy remains with FNB UCT Ikeys for another year after they beat FNB UWC 91-9 at the UWC Sports Stadium.

In perfect conditions for some entertaining rugby, Ikeys brought the heat to Bellville running in 13 tries to one when they thoroughly outplayed Udubs in their backyard.

Ntokozo Makhaza kept the scoreboard ticking over with his accuracy off the tee and made telling runs that got the visitors over the advantage line at regular intervals.

The home side enjoyed very little ball, and had it not been for a few errors when they did carry the ball, their promising phases of attack could have kept them within touching distance of the Ikey Tigers.

As the players headed into the sheds for half-time, UCT was comfortable on the scoreboard, leading by 33-0.

The second half got off with a repeat of the opening 40 minutes, with Ikeys scoring five seven-point tries. Luke Burger first completed his hat-trick and then added a fourth to his tall.

An all-around clinical display by UCT proved to be too much firepower for UWC to handle in their final home game of the season.

FNB UCT Ikeys: Tries: Joshua Miller, Luke Burger (4), Keagan Blanckenberg (2), Mika Schubbert (2), Joshua Miller, Ntokozo Makhaza, Tian Vorster, Alexander Vermeulen. Conversions: Ntokozo Makhaza (5), Alexander Vermeulen (3).
FNB UWC: Try: Hlomla Ncana. Conversion: Aaron Swartz.
