Fifth-ranked UCT's Ikey Tigers picked up their first win of the season scoring 40-13 against Nelson Mandela University's Madibaz. The home game was part of the third round of the Varsity Cup rugby competition. After the team's draw against Stellenbosch's Maties and loss to Potchefstroom's TUKS, many are seeing this as a stellar come-back.
Proud Ikeys coach Kevin Musikanth adds: "NMMU are a good side and never stopped playing, despite at one stage being more than three scores behind, which is testament to the quality of the Varsity Cup".
He cautioned against any thinking that the Madibaz hadn't played a good game, "I thought the boys really put in a sterling performance. Taking into account that we have a young squad, I think there really was great effort from the team."
