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!
Just in case you forgot what makes the Boks, the British Lions the Ikey Tigers and pretty much any other team on this oval planet tick – AWESOME!:

Remember Axel Mcleod, the winger who would burn guys on the outside so they could have a better look at the Afrika tatoo on his calve. Mcleod, a true Eagles legend – rumour has it he is the mentor behind Marcello Sampson’s wicked step.
Dockers – still in Blue and White
Remember Neil Docking, aka Dockers, an Ikey who had as much talent as he had attitude. Dockers saw the club into the new millenium and made history having a smoke on the first team bench to celebrate yet another cap. Ah, the good old days.
Remember Chris Rood, aka Bayroot, the Glider who would run a stealthy line and appear in a gap out of nowhere to score or put one of the Ikey speedsters away. Bayroot was part of Alan Solomon’s Ikeys of 2005 that pulled the club back from rock bottom to have an unbeaten second half and put the Blue and White back on the winning track.
