After a remarkable season, Shimlas’ captain Oupa Mohoje walked away as the 2013 Player That Rocks, which is the Varsity Cup equivalent of a player of the tournament award. Mohoje’s performances were widely lauded during the 2013 season during which he was also the Shimlas’ top try scorer.

The inspirational captain’s performances have even caught the eye of people higher up in the South African rugby scene. His consistent, powerful performances throughout the 2013 season have been rewarded by Oupa earning a Vodacom Cheetah’s contract.

There was even more good news for University of the Free State (UFS) rugby supporters. Steinhoff Vishuis won their third overall and second consecutive title, after winning the 2013 Varsity Cup Residence competition.

Vishuis beat the team of Steinhoff Villagers from NWU-Pukke by 20 points to 16 in the final that was played in Stellenbosch on Monday 8 April 2013.

Previous titles seemingly gave Vishuis the edge as they managed to overturn a 16 points to 10 deficit with only 20 minutes left to play.
