Pink shorts campaign: To show their support and raise money for rugby players living with cancer, every Varsity Cup Player that Rocks (Man of the Match) wears pink shorts in the next game he plays.
After weeks of 'rugby that rocks', the FNB Varsity Cup reaches its climax on 29 March with the highly anticipated final in Stellenbosch between UCT's Ikey Tigers and the University of Stellenbosch's Maties.
Tickets are on sale at R30 each. UCT RAG has about 2 000 tickets available, as well as bus tickets at R40 each. The rugby club also has about 500 tickets available. You can find the RAG Office on the 5th floor of the Steve Biko Student's Union Building, on upper campus, or telephone 021 650 3525. You can also telephone the rugby club on 021 650 5757.
A feature of the tournament is the "forward that rocks" and "player that rocks" man of the match awards. Former UCT captain JJ Gagiano has been nominated in both categories.
Supporters can vote for Gagiano as the player that rocks by texting "Varsity A JJ Gagiano" to 34581 and as the forward that rocks by texting "Varsity C JJ Gagiano" to the same number at R2 per sms.
UCT RAG is also promoting the pink shorts campaign to raise money for rugby players living with cancer. During the course of the tournament every Varsity Cup Player that Rocks (Man of the Match) wears pink shorts in the next game he plays.
