Ikey Legend, Nick Fenton (Bristol Bears), was named Gallagher Community Player of the Season on Wednesday 22 May at the 2019 Premiership Rugby Awards.
In the 1985 season UCT were the clear runners up in the Grand Challenge and were invited to attend The Easter National Club Championship Tournament alongside all the powerhouse clubs in South Africa at the time.
A look at some of our ex Ikey players playing professional or representative rugby all around the world.
Like running rugby runs through the veins of Ikey rugby players, it also seems the instinct and ability to coach runs deep. Varsity giants like Boy De Villiers, Louis Babrow, Doc Cecil Moss, Nick Mallett, Gus Enderstein and Basil Bey made names for themselves in coaching and a new group of Ikeys are carrying on the proud tradition.
For all his sublime skill on a rugby field, excelling in the amalgam of a concentrated physical clash over 80 odd minutes, with hand-eye coordination denied most of us, fleet-footed speed and agility, all reliant on a high degree of teamwork and mental toughness, there was so much more to Mike Gillies.
