The FNB UCT teams made the most of the excellent conditions at Helderberg RFC on Saturday, with the Ikey Tigers booking a dominant 34:5 victory and the Eagles imressing with a 87:14 rout away in the Stand.
Head coach Hanyani Shimange had rotated his squad a bit to cope with the touch three match a week schedule and it was the new faces who sparked the Ikeys attack.
Dilyn Leyds back from provincial duties held the reings at flyhalf and unleashed his backs on the Strand fields that presented a complete reversal to the previous Wednesday night's conditions on the Green Mile. Leyds crossed the white wash for a classy try, as did center Andrew Norton who got a start in place of the hard running David Abunya.
The young Ikeys backrow, around skipper Josh Katzen did the rest of the damage with both 8th man Michael Botha and flank Vincent Jobbo crossing the line.
Ross Jones Davies – who played at fullback was on song with the boot, adding 14 points to secure a solid 34:5 victory and 12 points from the first three matches.
The UCT Eagles / 2nds scored an impressive 15 tries to beat their opposition 87:14 and the Ish Dramat 3rd team hung on to beat Helderberg 3rds by 18:14 in a tight match. The Trojans continued their bonus point streak putting away the 'Berge U20s 31:10.
The UCT teams continue their condensed three match a week schedule when they head out to Durbanville Bellville on Wednesday night.
