Ikeys blitz Hammies

UCT pulled off a tremendous victory against powerhouse club Hamilton's at the Green Mile, beating the visitors 25:12. 

The UCT U20 Trojans and Eagles set the tone for the night beating their counterparts from Green Point. 

The Ikey Tigers had a great night in tough conditions on the wet and slippery Green Mile and could not put a foot wrong going up 19:0 following tries by Mike Kennedy, Luke Bax, Dylan Sage in the first 15 minutes. 

UCT continued to do most of the playing, using the wind and conditions well and added penalties to edge ahead further leading their stunned visitors 22:0 at the half.

As so often at UCT the conditions created a game of two halves, but UCT kept running the ball playing into the wind now and thoroughly enjoyed their night of rugby, adding another Ross Jones Davies penalty to make it 25:0. 

WP scrumhalf Nic Groom and center Damian de Allende were in attendance and commented: "It really was champagne rugby out there – great to come watch the Ikeys boys." 

What followed was a gutsy effort to stop the wounded beast that was Hammies, as the Green Point outfit started clawing their way back into the game with a first try with about 20 minutes to go – 25:7. 

Hammies to their credit finished strong and added another try for the final score of 25:12 to end a fantastic Cape derby match. 

"I thought it was a superb performance and a fantastic defensive effort in particular." said a happy Director of Rugby Kevin Musikanth.  

Credit to coach JJ Gagiano for this great win and the brilliant turn around following the narrow loss to Vics just 5 days prior. 

Up next UCT face Helderberg also at home.

Ikeys gear up for Hammies

UCT are taking on Hamilton's on the Green Mile on Wednesday evening in a classic cape winter clash. 

Hamilton's are sitting second currently with two games in hand and will look to make amends for their 15:19 loss to UCT in Green Point earlier in the season. The match has some added spice, as the team from the oldest rugby club in SA features two former Ikeys in prop Dylan Rogers and lock Mike Ledwidge. 

UCT's coach JJ Gagiano meanwhile has rung the changes due to some injuries, but has also been able to call up a few players returning into the fold. Scrumhalf Liam Slatem has recovered from an injury sustained in the Varsity Cup and is back in action. Also back, though on the bench is hooker Neil Rautenbach who had a stint with the Griquas in Kimberley. 

Evergreen center Andre Coetzer (pictured) moves into the side place of Andrew Norton who will come off the bench and Brad Bosman gets a start in the second row. 

The first team match kicks off at 9pm, the Eagles start at 19.45, 3rds at 18.35 and U20A at 18.25. 

Gear up in Wellies and rain kit and come support this classic Cape Town clash on the Green Mile.

Vics edge Ikey Tigers

The Ikeys rugby sides had a tough time out in Stellenbosch, with the Ikey Tigers going down narrowly by 29:33 and only the UCT Eagles booking a win away 24:10. 

The Tigers will be disappointed not to claim the win and the single log point is not what they intended to challenge for in their quest to chase the elusive league title. 

But credit has to go to the young hosts who held a narrow 12:9 lead at the half and true to their favoured running rugby style ended up outscoring the visitors by five tries to two. 

UCT's Eagles however carried on their impressive form with a bonus point victory and are sitting ahead of Maties with only one loss, 49 log points and the staggering points difference of +312 points. 

The Ikeys now host Hamiltons on Wednesday night with rain and cold forecast, which will make for a tough encounter with the heavy and experienced Greenpoint outfit.
