The FNB Ikey Tigers took another knock on the road on Monday evening as they suffered defeat at the hands of FNB NWU-Pukke down in Potchefstroom.
The men from Cape Town were the first to trouble the scorers with a Darian Hock penalty early on giving them a 3 point lead. The Pukke responded almost immediately with a brace of tries by Reuben Du Plooy taking the score line out to 12-3 after the first quarter of an hour.
Pukke then extended their lead with another try and a penalty before ill-discipline let them down. At one stage the men from Potchefstroom were down to 13 men as Eugene Hare received a yellow card and Gideon van der Merwe received a red card on top of that. FNB UCT struck back with a try by Joshua van Vuuren which Darian Hock converted taking the score to 22-10 at halftime to the home side.
