UCT put 5 tries past NNK

NNK 16 : 38 UCT

In yet another late night fixture UCT took on NNK in Parow – usually a well contested high-scoring affair – as the 36:35 score, first half of the season suggests. It was also the last 2007 match for NNK who were looking to end on a high, after a fairly dissappointing season with plenty of close scores and not quite enough wins.

shoulder – had the team’s line-up change quite drastically.

The game was one of a very high intensity and one of the fastest so far this season – a true advertisement for student rugby.

Durbanville Bellville host UCT

Durbell 23 – UCT 24

27 Degrees and a scorcher of a spring day saw the Ikeys travel to Durbvanville for the third fixture after the break. A game of two very different halfs. UCT seemed to have recovered from last week’s defeat in the mud to SK Walmers and put on a very clinical performance in the opening half. The pack was working well in the tight phases and provided good ball for the back three who were in great running mood. The Ikeys repeatedly pinned Durbell in their 22 and when a deft backline move finally saw Rob Hoppwood score in the corner.
