Opening week results and log

With the nailbiting to the wire Ikeys opening match still fresh in our memories, let’s have a look at the other games. The high scoring “Rugby that Rocks” seemed still a bit rusty, but it is early days.


Shimlas vs NMMU 37 – 11
NMMU, the wodden spoon kids from 2008’s tournament were competetive for much of the game, but Shimlas ran away with it in the last 15 and secured the only bonus point for 4 tries of the day.

UCT vs Maties 10 – 12
We all know about this one. UCT up 10:3 at half-time on the windy Green Mile, scoring the only try “but the points just would not come” afterwards – maybe the TMO would have disagreed.

UJ v TUT 16 – 9
Not much of a looker in wet conditions, one try and a bunch of kicks, this one could have gone either way, TUT, Tshwane University of Technology (UCT’s next fixture) were suprisingly strong against the much hyped and well funded UJ outfit.

Pukke v Tuks 27 – 29
Pukke, the Club Champions  and VC semi-finalists of 2008 would have wished for a better start on their home turf. Tukkies were helped by an intercept and Pukke failed to kick a last minute conversion which would have drawn the game and given the log a truly interesting flavour.
