Ikeys end cup drought

Friday, 22 March 2013 04:05

Megan Kinnaird: Monday night saw the Ikeys get their first, and only, win of the 2013 Varsity Cup season, defeating Wits 50-40 on the Green Mile.

An exhilarating first half saw the Tigers sitting 42 points up by the break, but an ill-disciplined second half showing almost resulted in the win being ripped out of the Ikeys eagerly-awaiting hands.

The Black EP is a bit darker than your previous EP. What inspired this? 

Liam: I think it all stems from the fact that Jane and I don’t make music that fits into any particular genre.

The FNB NMMU Madibaz made history when they qualified for their first-ever Varsity Cup semifinal by beating defending champions UP-Tuks 13-7 in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

The hard-earned victory, which was their first against UP-Tuks, saw the Madibaz advance to the knock-out stage for the first time, edging out FNB NWU-Pukke by the narrowest of margins on points' difference.

Dramatic draw sinks Shimlas

FNB UJ scrumhalf Vian van der Watt scored two late tries to salvage a dramatic 26-26 draw with UFS-Shimlas in Johannesburg on Monday.

It was a strange game. UJ had 38 minutes worth of the first half and were down 8-5 at half-time. Then UFS-Shimlas had 25 minutes of the second half and led 26-5. And then, just to keep everybody enthralled, UJ scored 21 points in 13 minutes to draw an engrossing match.
