UCT Ikey Tigers went down 17:20 to the strong Durbell team on Wednesday in a great, evenly matched high intensity affair.
The Ikey Tigers are gearing up for their fourth match in 10 days and while they can field a virtually unchanged team, they will have to bring all their flair and skill to challenge Durbell.
Following the luring of UCT coach, Kevin Foote, to the Western Force where he has been appointed defence coach, the Ikey Tigers are seeking to appoint a new Head Coach, with a view to running their Varsity Cup and local Western Province league First XV campaigns.
The FNB UCT Ikey Tigers showed great character last night to outscore visiting Bellville Tech by four tries to two and grind out a 28:21 bonus point victory on the muddy and wet Green Mile. The other UCT teams also scored important victories on the night.
It is a challenging week for the UCT Ikey Tigers who will face Bellville Tech on Wednesday evening following their hard fought 24:24 draw against Belhar on Saturday.
