The log standings say it all: 14 wins in 14 games for the Ikeys Cubs, UCT’s U20 A1s. They scored a massive 124 tries at an average of nearly 9 tries per game. Included in this were wins away against the Maties in the Hedley Atkins Trophy and at home against a strong Villager side who draw players from the Western Province Rugby Academy.

Ikey Legend, Wes Chetty was written into the UCT Rugby history books this month as one of the few to reach 100 caps for the Ikeys. He captained the side on Saturday, 8th September 2018 in his 100th match, when the Ikeys took on Tygerberg away.
The 2018 Internal League Championship has reached the playoff stage of the competition and never before has it been so tough to call. This year the teams have it all to play for with a spot in next year’s Varsity Cup competition up for grabs.

As we take a look back at the 2018 WP Super A League season, although the mighty Ikey Tigers may have disappointed with not finishing in a playoff position, the future looks bright as the U20A team finished with a flourish.

Florida Park was a buzz this past weekend as Tygerberg hosted the UCT Ikey Tigers in the annual Tiger Cup Derby.

The age old rivalry between the Ikey Tigers and Tygerberg rugby club will be reignited when the two sides meet in the penultimate week of league action.

On the 1st of September the University of Cape Town achieved yet another milestone when its first women's rugby team, known as the UCT Swifts, took to the field to compete in their first game of rugby at City Park, Athlone.

After hitting a bit of a stumbling block in the middle of the season I think it’s safe to say that the Ikey Tigers are back to winning ways after mounting two very impressive back to back victories over the last week.

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.
