Varsity Cup, Round 6

Jacques looks at the action from Round 5 and gives us the line up’s for tonight’s games.

by Jacques

Round 5 in this year’s Varsity Cup did not bring a lot of surprises but we still got the full throttle non-stop action last Monday.

In the first match of the day we saw a struggling UCT hosting their neighbours Maties at the Green Mile. I was actually impressed by the commitment and style the men from UCT played with and I’m actually surprised that they did not win more matches this year. They have big and fast backs which run the ball from any place on the field and the forwards can stand tall with any other team in the competition.  Maties only manage to pull clear of UCT in the second half after applying a lot of pressure on the UCT gaol line. Maties scored the bonus point try and won the game 37-15.

Our second match saw Pukke take on Shimlas in an open running game. Pukke struggled to get going on the night and in some circles the end score was a surprise as Shimlas run away with a 38-18 win. Players like Robbie van Schalkwyk and Nico Scheepers is names we will hear in the future.

Due to the fact that NMMU have beaten Shimlas, draw against UCT and win against Wits it was not really a surprise that the won against UJ on Monday night. This team was struggling for the past few years on the bottom of the log but showed this year that they can be counted as one of the top universities in the country now. NMMU won the game 20-13.

In the other match Tukkies got a good run in after their lost against Maties when the beat Wits 52-0.

In this week’s matches the one that must be the game of the week will be Pukke vs NMMU. NMMU will want to keep their good form running as they will be having one eye on a semi-final spot. Another game worth watching tonight will be UJ who will be hosting Tuks.

The full schedule for tonight:

Pukke vs. NMMU

Shimlas vs. UCT

UJ vs. Tuks

Maties vs. Wits

    It was a good night of Varsity Cup. All the teams that i wanted to win did 8). If the maties goes on like this then my prediction is going to be true :wink: .

    But Maties has to watch out for Pukke remember they did win us in the last final but i think the maties’s teamwork , defence and attack are better this year so Pukke watch out.
