SK holds off relentless UCT
04 August 2009
The FNB UCT First XV marked their post-vacation return to the WP Super League with the debut of Springbok hooker Hanyani Shimange, but also one-sided 11-16 defeat to SK Walmers on Saturday, 1 August, at the Green Point Track (which stands in the shade of the 2010 stadium). One-sided in that the Ikeys had the lion's share of the ball and territory, but SK Walmers fended off attack after attack with ferocious tackling and clever rucking. SK's tireless defence paid dividends as a breakaway try and a near-flawless performance from their flyhalf saw them take a prized scalp. UCT's next game is versus Victorians at the Danie Craven Stadium on 5 August. In picture UCT's Dane Johnson finds his path blocked by Tanqai Nemadire (15) of SK Walmers.
