It was ought to be a close battle in the Varsity Cup 2013, but Tukkies clearly did not get the memo in one of the most one-sided finals every witnessed.
Not a lot of analysing needs to be done in this game to understand why Tuks came out on top. It all started with Maties struggling in their line outs where the first one they lost on their own throw almost resulting in a try for Tukkies – from there, it got progressively worse.
Tukkies dominated in just about all areas of play known to man, and some areas which still needs to be defined.
For Tuks, Pollard showed the talent we have been hearing about for some time but never quite witnessed – he will be another Varsity Cup product to wear the Springbok jersey in the not too distant future. The young man showed all his classed in his kicking, running and distribution, controlling the game with ease which was made easier thanks to their dominant pack.
In many ways Tukkies showed the way forward for the Varsity Cup, a future some might not be too happy with.
