The University of the Western Cape hosted the University of KwaZulu Natal in the opening round of this years FNB Varsity Shield at the UWC Sports Stadium in Bellville last night.

It was, however, the Impi’s from Durban that opened the scoring through inside centre, Marius Louw, towards the end of the first half. Fly-half, Innocent Radebe converted the try to give his team an 8 – 0 lead.

The two teams went into the half time break with the Impi’s leading 8 – 0.

Fifteen minutes into the second half, Radebe, who was also named man-of-the-match scored his teams second try. He also converted the try as Impi’s took a 16 – 0 lead with 25 minutes to go.

UWC’s right wing, Gavian Cloete scored his teams only try minutes later. Fly-half, Quaid Langeveldt was unable to add the extra three.

Scores remained 16 – 5 untill the final whistle, as Impi’s get their Varsity Cup campaign off to a winning start.

Scorers:

FNB UWC – Try: Gavian Cloete

FNB UKZN – Tries: Marius Louw, Innocent Radebe. Coversions: Radebe (1)

  • My boytjies, Maties, lead 37-8 and have wrapped up the bonus point. Currently that puts them in fourth position and in a semifinal spot…

  • Pukke are the only guys who can displace the Maties. To do that they have to win in Bloem against Shimlas. Currently they trail 24-5…

  • Pukke could also make the semis if they get 2 log points either through a draw or by getting 2 losing bonus points by scoring 4 tries and losing by less than 7…so this is still wide open…
