Although the Ikey Tigers senior team narrowly missed out on a playoff spot in this year’s FNB Varsity Cup, the U20 side enjoyed a phenomenal tournament in the Young Guns edition.
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.
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.
