Varsity Cup is without fail one of the sporting highlights of the year. Even for those of you who don’t watch rugby, one can indulge on the vibe that comes with the mass of blue Ikey shirts. Lucky for us, we don’t have to wait long before action hits our fields, since Varsity Cup kicks off in the beginning of the year.
On match day, it’s a beautiful sight to behold – floodlights shining down The Green Mile, stands full of supporters (hopefully), drinks flowing and The Ikey Tiger keeping the noise at a high.
The Ikeys return to this season from a tough year in 2016. So far, the Ikeys have played 3, taking away 1 win against CUT. Unfortunately, the most recent game was a loss in the much hyped-about derby of the year – Ikeys vs Maties. At least from a spectator’s point of view, the evening was still packed with action! Whatever the season has in store, the Ikeys can take comfort from a fellow Ikey – Siya Kolisi – who was recently announced as the new captain of the Stormers.
The boys take on UJ this coming Monday, 13th March, at home. In fact, you have no excuse not to be there because it will be our first official day back at varsity for 2017! Hope to see you there at 16:45pm for kick-off!
