Varsity Cup Round 2

February 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

Week 1 of the Varsity showed that Maties are ready to compete for the title again, that Pukke could be contenders, that Ikeys aren’t quite there this year and that Wits has a tough road ahead. Week 2 and the winning teams will build on last week while the losing teams will look to change their fortunes.

SHIMLAS V MATIES
11 Feb – 19.00 Shimla Park

It is difficult to rate the Shimlas win against Wits until both teams have faced other opposition and no match will show whether this Shimlas side is better than last year’s than a match against three times champion, Maties.

3 responses to Varsity Cup Round 2

  1. Tuks 24 – 16 Ikeys
    Shimlas 15 – 23 Maties
    UJ 37 – 20 NWU-Puk
    NMMU 24 – 16 Wits

    • A lot of close games yesterday. It does look good for the Shimlas this year since they had a very close game against Maties. I was told that the game couldve gone either way and since Maties scored from 3 intercepts it does tell a story. It could be to early to say but from the opening two weeks of rugby I think the Shimlas, Maties and Tuks will be the front runners this year.
