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.

UCT vs Collegians

UCT 22 – 7 Collegians

The first match after a long 8 week break for Varsity and vital fixture in the survival of Collegians RFC, sitting bottom of the log with only one win so far, desperate for points to fight relegation – it was always going to be an interesting affair. Surprisingly the Ikeys started in a very clinical and organised way, quickly putting points on the board, dominating the tight lose and being determined in defence. After 20 minutes the score was already 15:0 and it looked like it would be a long night for Collegians.

SK Walmers vs Ikeys at Greenpoint

SK Walmers 21 : 0 UCT

skwalmers_away2007_01_sml.jpgOn Saturday 11 August, UCT travelled to ‘the track’ in Greenpoint to
take on SK Walmers. Conditions were atrocious, with torrential downpours during
the week, the SK field had been turned into an ankle deep mud bath.
UCT took to
the field in a torrential downpour with determination, however a mistimed cross
kick put SK onto the scoreboard early on. SK’s flyhalf, kicking for the corner,
skewed his kick, which went straight down his left wings throat which resulted
in a short sprint to the try line. Score 7-0.

Ikeys go down at Brookside

Villagers 18:10 UCT 

UCT took on Villagers on Saturday 26 May. Unfortunately, villagers sealed victory in the dying minutes of the game through a try in the corner. The game was another bruising encounter, with both teams defence
holding strong throughout the first half. However, UCT did fail to
capitalise on a number of opportunities during the first half, most of
which were instigated by the ever-prominent James Richards. Villagers
led going into the half 6-3.
