UCT last night beat Vics in Stellenbosch by 31:20. Vics as always were full of running, but UCT controlled the game well in a much improved performance and flyhalf Ollie Braithwaite’s excellent kicking ended up being the deciding factor.
The Ikeys went ahead early, making their dominance and possesion count, with three well taken penalties by Braithwaite, then it was US Eagles backrower JJ Gagiano who crashed over from a set move to extend the lead to 16:0.
