After Ikeys had booked their semifinal spot as undisputed logleaders with a game in hand, Stellenbosch, NWU-Pukke and Tukkies ended their FNB Varsity
Cup league campaigns with convincing wins in George on Monday – with
all three sides securing semifinal places in the process.
Tukkies sealed a place in the last four by beating NMMU 48-13 in the
day’s first match at Outeniqua Park, followed by Pukke crushing UJ
Stellenbosch then wrapped up a home semifinal thanks to a 36-10 win over TUT.
The day’s final match, between log leaders UCT and Shimlas, ended 28:14 in favour of the Ikey Tigers, but had no bearings on the semifinals.
UCT will host Pukke in one semi-final next Monday, 31st of March, with Maties
hosting Tukkies in the other semifinal on the same day; making an
all-Cape final a distinct possibility.
Results of the final day thus far:
NMMU 13 Tukkies 48
NWU Pukke 67 UJ 14
Stellenbosch 36 TUT 10
UCT 28 Shimlas 14
