The first Varsity Cup game for the season kicked off this week when Shimlas (University of the Free State) and Ikeys (University of Cape Town) tackled each other on Free State soil.

On Shimla Park’s pavilion the large crowd of spectator students, dressed in their blue varsity cup shirts, unanimously gave their support to our Shimla team. Not even the final score of 10-26 in favour of the Ikey Tigers managed to put a damper on the good spirit that prevailed.
Jaco Swanepoel, the Shimlas coach, said that he was expecting a better performance in the coming six round-robin matches.
This coming Monday, 14 February 2011, Shimlas will come up against Maties at Shimla Park.
