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.
Round eight of the FNB Varsity Cup opened up with one of the most extraordinary games the competition has ever seen. In a match that had it all from cross kicks, yellow cards, beautiful tries and even a lightning delay the Ikey Tigers and UP Tuks played out a 26 all draw.
Ikey Tigers is delighted to announce that Neville Isdell has been nominated and elected as the Club’s 13th President in Ikey Tigers’ 137-year history. Mr Isdell is a former Board Chairman and CEO of the Coca-Cola Company and serves or has served as a Board Director for various corporate and non-profit organisations.
The Ikey Swifts participated at the WP 7s Festival earlier in March and faced some tough opposition boasting provincial players and even Springboks. Swifts have had two fixtures thus far, a 15s friendly against CPUT and the 7s tournament.
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.
