Ikey legend Dugald Macdonald publishes a book on his experiences of the 1974 Lions Tour. Dugald Macdonald is an Ikey legend both as a player and as an official of the club. He served the Club as President for fifteen years, presiding over an astonishing period of change in global club and university rugby.
In this article we share a bit more information about the Ikey coaches and how each one of these fantastic individuals fit into the picture.
While local rugby has been fairly quiet other than the Rainbow Cup and Varsity Cup, the oldest provincial competition, the Carling Currie Cup started on Friday 18th June, with a premier division (a double round with semi and final). There is also a first division competition for the lower teams as well as an u20 section, so we expect a number of Ikeys to feature in the months to come.
There are a number of trophies the Ikeys get to play for, the Varsity Cup and WC Super A league probably being the more prestigious. However, there are other trophies that are played for and the Ikeys have won two so far this year. Some of these trophies have a more sentimental meaning to the Ikeys and are just as important to the club.
