The FNB Ikey Tigers beat provincial side SWD Eagles by 24-19 at Outeniqua Park in George, during their Varsity Cup pre-season tour to Plett.
This is a promising result in what is the Ikeys team's second full match hit out of the season, after they disposed of Varsity Shield challengers FNB UWC by 60:21 last week.
Coach Kevin Musikanth who had attended the Varsity Cup national launch earlier in the day, was pleased with the outcome and the momentum the squad is building "The guys fronted up nicely" he commented.
Up next is another high profile friendly against the EP Kings on Friday evening to conclude an intense week of training and preparation in Plett.
The Ikey Tigers will host FNB NWU Pukke on Monday the 3rd in their Varsity Cup opener.
