Ikey Tigers aim to finish on a high

FNB Ikeys have been on the receiving end of a few tough results and have been involved in two draws this season so this last game will be their chance to register a win.

They play against an FNB Wits side that has found their opening season in the FNB Varisty Cup very difficult and have bot been able to find their feet as they have been able to score tries but they have not been able to defend well enough.

In the side there have been four changes made by UCT with one change in the backs where Dylan Sage relinqushes his position in the starting line-up to hard running center David Ambunya.

Amongst the forwards, Bradley Bosman comes into the No. 8 position as Josh Katzen is back onto the side of the scrum and Jason Klaasen drops to the bench.

There is a double change amongst the front-rowers as Digby Webb and Sti Sithole come into the starting XV and Oliver Kebble is rotated to the bench.

Former captain Ntsolo Setlaba is back from injury returns to the side onto the bench and will be hoping that he can make an impact if he gets on the field.

UCT will be looking to Liam Bax again to provide them with some magic in the backline after he managed to score twice against UFS-Shimlas in their previous game. 

Ross Jones-Davies has been on song with the boot and has, arguably, kept UCT in a lot of the games they have played with his accuracy from the tee.

It will not be all doom and gloom for UCT if they can register a good win against the Varsity Cup rookies.

UCT: 15 Ross Jones-Davies, 14 Richard Stewart, 13 David Ambunya, 12 Liam Bax, 11 Lihleli Xoli, 10 Dillyn Leyds, 9 Liam Slatem (captain), 8 Bradley Bosman, 7 Joshua Katzen, 6 Derek Asbun, 5  James Kilroe, 4 Kyle Kriel, 3 Digby Webb, 2 Michael Willemse, 1 Sti Sithole.
