After weeks of preparation, the time eventually came for the Ikey Hurricanes to hit USSA in the Big Smoke. A classic airport Mug and Bean brekkie made up for the 8am flight, and then we were finally off. Our base for the week, the Devonshire hotel, once THE party spot in Jozi, had been the subject of much debate and discussion, and boy did it live up to it.

On Saturday, 29th September, UCT's first ever women's rugby team made their Sevens debut and secured their first victory as a team. The Ikeys Swifts, as they have officially named themselves, played against the Maties women's team on the Green Mile. They played brilliantly, winning one of their games against the Stellenbosch team by five tries.

UCT RFC successfully hosted our AGM for 2018 on 24th September (Heritage Day) in conjunction with our 'Shisa Nyama’ evening (meaning “burn meat” in Zulu) as part of celebrating our culture and heritage with our community.
UCT RFC is incredibly excited to have recently launched the UCT RFC School of Leadership Programme. The objective of the course is to marry leadership required on the field, off the field, in our board rooms and then into the workplace. In addition, the programme also has a tier in place which aligns with participants’ present levels of involvement in the Club.

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

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.
