The Ikey Swifts participated at the WP 7s Festival earlier in March and faced some tough opposition boasting provincial players and even Springboks. Swifts have had two fixtures thus far, a 15s friendly against CPUT and the 7s tournament.
Up in Pretoria the old saying “Tuks of Niks” is used rather affectionately to describe that for the students of the University of Pretoria there is space in their hearts for Tuks, or no one. In round eight of the FNB Varsity Cup that saying has taken on a whole new meaning for FNB UCT. It means defeat Tuks, or their playoff dreams are over.
