Petersen named Varsity Cup's backliner of the tournament

03 April 2009

So, yes, Stellenbosch University's Maties took a deserved second Varsity Cup title and, rightly so, picked up most of the other awards, including that for the team that played the best rugby ("Rugby that Rocks", viz the competition's byline). But UCT didn't walk off empty-handed. Fullback Therlow Petersen, one of the Ikey Tigers' most consistent performers, was named Back of the Tournament. (For the record, Maties got the better of North West University's Pukke by 11-6 in a blood, sweat and tears final in Stellenbosch on 30 March.)
