It's not common anymore for SA Schools players to make the decision to study at UCT and play for the Ikey Tigers, particularly in recent years as they are recruited by the unions or by the cash flush university sides. This, however, has not always been the case...

After a drought delayed the start to the season, the 1st XV, 2nd XV and under 20A teams kicked off their respective league campaigns a little later this year, with a two month break further disrupting momentum after only three games. Nevertheless, 9 games in and the Ikey Tigers sit mid-table, with the u20A's holding an unbeaten run.

A personal view of some of the very best teams of the past and the present reveals that often those teams which have to struggle against adversity and seeming disadvantages, frequently take the ‘against factors’ and turn them into a motivational weapon which they thrive on. Such a team was the UCT First XV of 1960/1961.

Rob Bertram was not a man who did things by half measure. He was possessed of self- confidence which is the hallmark of all achievers, but combined it with kindness and considerable charm, and genuine concern for people. Some of the men who played with Rob at UCT in the late fifties and early sixties pay tribute here to Rob.

The big news item for the Ikeys was the appointment of Siya Kolisi as Springbok captain. South Africa achieved a series win over England in Siya’s first test as captain, an outstanding achievement for the young captain.

This is a story of two boys who came from the Eastern Province of South Africa. They were born 51 years apart, from two very different lineages and backgrounds, but a thread of connectivity makes their tale a fascinating one.

Start something, then you must finish it, John le Roux once said to me. While we all obsess about equality on the field, the off the field stuff is missed. The Ubumbo – UCT FRC journey is not yet finished.
It being my first Intervarsity, and with the rules around how players behaved in the build up to the game being a smidgen more fluid than they are today, I thought it a good idea to take up my selection into the UCT down-down first team.
