A well conditioned and prepared, UCT 7’s team did exceptionally well to make the Cup Semi Final in the well organized recent USSA 7’s Rugby Tournament, held at the Nelson Mandela University Campus in George.
After cruising through the pool stages with the only stumble against the Pukke, an at that stage severely injury ravaged side (only 8 available players) put up a courageous performance against their old Nemesis, Maties, in narrowly losing the Cup Semi final 7 – 17. The Maties were the eventual Cup winners.
The road to the Semi’s was a particularly good one for UCT, who scored some great tries and played some great 7’s rugby.
The results were:
UCT vs Umtata won 61 -0 Pool Match
UCT vs DUT won 42-0 Pool Match
UCT vs UKZN won 35-7 Pool Match
UCT vs CPUT won 28-0 Pool Match
UCT vs PUKKE lost 14-17 Pool Match
UCT vs NMMU won 26-0 Cup Quarter Final
UCT vs Maties lost 7-17 Cup Semi Final
