UCT take on the 2006 Boland Champion Ceres this Saturday 15 March 2008.
It will be the last friendly before the season begins early April and also the last chance for some of the youngsters to put up their hand to be included in the Ikey Tigers’s Varsity Cup squad to travel to George for the Easter Bumper weekend. In the 2007 showdown between the two clubs Boland narrowly defeated the UCT 1st XV, so Richard Ince’s team certainly has a point to prove this year.
For UCT, flyhalf James Bailes and Ashley Wells are back from injury and fullback Pietie Olivier is back after his bar exam.
