VARSITY CUP EXTRAVAGANZA

By GLRU

Posted on March 14, 2016

The first Varsity Cup extravaganza will be played on the Lions’ doorstep at the the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Monday afternoon with both the local Universities standing strong in the Shield and Cup competitions.

Wits will kick-start proceedings at 13:00 on the outer field when they meet the current log leaders, UKZN, in a match which will probably decide who gets automatic promotion to the Cup next season.

The Varsity Cup champs, the Shimlas, will be in action simultaneously in the stadium when they meet their Bloemfontein neighbours, the Ixias, in a derby.

The UJ, very much in the hunt, will meet Tukkies, who will have their backs to the wall.

UJ can guarantee themselves at least a place in a play-off should they prevail against a Tukkies team which is right at the bottom of the log, and a very dangerous opponent because of that.

Wits and the UJ will rely on their packs to secure their victories and their “home-town” advantage could be an ally.
