The Ikey Tigers and Stellenbosch celebrated over 100 years of Inter-Varsity competition on Wednesday evening under the night lights of the Danie Craven in Stellenbosch.
Friday the 13th, usually a day synonymous with ghastly ghosts, breathtaking terror and spooky sounds, but this Friday the 13th promises to be a little different.
The Club has recently partnered with the VUSA Rugby Academy to launch the VUSA-Ikeys Rugby Programme for young up and coming rugby players in the Langa community. Meaning “to wake up” or “lift up spiritually” in isiXhosa, VUSA offers a structured program designed to restore dignity, build self-esteem, and develop the rugby and academic skills of disadvantaged children across the Western Cape.
The Ikeys narrowly missed out on a semi-final place by just two points in Mondays game, after being beaten in the unofficial quarter final 18-17 by UJ. A win by the Ikeys would have resulted in them ending fourth and meeting the Maties in the semi-final.
Presenting The Ikeys Premier League! 6 rugby franchises going head to head for 3 weeks on the Green Mile! We will be holding the Ikey Premier League (IPL) – based on the Indian Premier Cricket League – for the entire club, bar a few VC players who will be rested.
