Enders in action with Paki at Newlands, the home of
WP UCT Rugby
Whatever happened to Enders, James Endersby a club man of note. Enders a light to medium weight lock, played for various Ikey sides and managed the Internal League for two years. His claim to fame is a cap for Australia – you better believe it – and making pocket rocket Brent Russel look good at touch rugby.
Snoopy with his Leinster Team mates, celebrating Ollie le Roux at the all Ireland Hot Dog Eating competition.
Here is a man who needs no introduction – the Big Dog! Stephen Snoopy Knoop! The famous varsity tighthead prop who had a strict diet of beer and boerewors after 12 at night till sun rise, with his trusted and preferred supplier of the latter being the aptly called “Boerewors Lady” ouside the Green Man, now known as Tin Roof.
Remember Kev ‘Milk’-Stout a legendary MC Marais and Moss XV prop, who was incidently also one of the social pillars of the club. Stoutie famously made the Eikestad Nuus, the Stellenbosch Newspaper’s frontpage after dominating the third half, celebrating the Ikey’s 2004 Intervarsity win.

Coached by Barry O’Mahony
Remember Dave Cumming aka Lurker, the UCT center who claims the only reason he was so good at putting guys through gaps, was because he was too much of a cart horse to take them himself. Lurker was a talented player who helped lift the first team from what used to be 30point thrashings by Maties to becoming seriously competitive.
Bon Shaw (coach with cap) and his mighty 3rds in 2004
Whatever happened to Bob Shaw, who Hellen Zille might remember as Henry Olonga. Bob coached UCT teams at all levels from U19 to 1st XV and is a varsity man of note!
