UCT travel to Ceres

UCT take on the 2006 Boland Champion Ceres this Saturday 15 March 2008.

It will be the last friendly before the season begins early April and also the last chance for some of the youngsters to put up their hand to be included in the Ikey Tigers’s Varsity Cup squad to travel to George for the Easter Bumper weekend. In the 2007 showdown between the two clubs Boland narrowly defeated the UCT 1st XV, so Richard Ince’s team certainly has a point to prove this year.

UCT friendlies vs Stellenbosch- results

Friendlies UCT vs Stellenbosch / UCT U20 vs Parow NNK

It was a hot day indeed for the UCT teams, when they took on the young Matie teams on Saturday, with the sun burning down mercilessly at 35C in the early afternoon fixtures played in Coetzenburg.

UCT A played some enterprising rugby against their much
younger and lighter opposition, but handling errors and lack of
concentration let them down at crucial times. After a constructive week
of training, the lineouts in particular looked sharp with towering Bodo
Sieber and Dayne Allenbrook well in control and the scrums were also
much improved, supplying a solid foundation off the set phases – it was
the breakdown that let down the Ikeys team, with the young Maties
forcing way too many turnovers / freekicks.
