The star in the Ikeys line-up was Marvin Christians who crossed the tryline four times, while Robert Hopwood dotted down twice. The other Ikeys tries were scored by JP Koster and Herbert Mayosi.
Tukkies had a fairy tale start to the Varsity Cup last week when they produced one of the biggest comebacks in rugby history, drawing with Maties 31-31 after trailing by 31-5 with six minutes to go. But on Monday night none of that magic was anywhere to be seen.
In Johannesburg, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) got a real thumping at the hands of Shimlas, going down 54-6. The visitors showed real class, especially in the interpretation of the new laws and couldn’t put a foot wrong.
The young Ebersohn twins are going to be stars of the Varsity Cup this year and it is hard to believe that they were still at school last year.
After the second round of the Varsity Cup the competition has been thrown wide open and it is still anybody’s guess who will be the top dog come the Easter weekend in George.Tweet
