For all his sublime skill on a rugby field, excelling in the amalgam of a concentrated physical clash over 80 odd minutes, with hand-eye coordination denied most of us, fleet-footed speed and agility, all reliant on a high degree of teamwork and mental toughness, there was so much more to Mike Gillies.

The last round of the FNB Varsity Cup round robin phase saw the Ikey Tigers put on their most complete performance as they scored a very impressive bonus point victory against FNB CUT Ixias from Bloemfontein.
The Ikey Tigers go into final round of the FNB Varsity Cup knowing that nothing less than a bonus point win will secure their path to the playoffs. That and a bit of luck on the other side of the country.

Up in Pretoria the old saying “Tuks of Niks” is used rather affectionately to describe that for the students of the University of Pretoria there is space in their hearts for Tuks, or no one. In round eight of the FNB Varsity Cup that saying has taken on a whole new meaning for FNB UCT. It means defeat Tuks, or their playoff dreams are over.
