Kovsies impress with first match in Varsity Cup Series
2012-02-08

 

Shimlas defeat 2011 Varsity Cup champions.

38-10. This was the final score of our Shimlas’ first match in this year’s Varsity Cup Series. What makes this score even more impressive is that the Shimlas defeated last year’s Varsity Cup champions, the Ikeys of the University of Cape Town. In so doing they compensated for last year’s defeat of 20-57.

There is no doubt that Shimlas are licking their lips for victory this year because in the first ten minutes of the match, they scored two tries, one each for scrumhalf Kevin Luiters and hooker PW van Vuuren.

Other point scorers were Pieter Rademan, Fanie van der Walt and Nico Scheepers.

The second half saw another two tries for the Shimlas, but it was especially the team’s rock solid defence which cemented their success.

Captain Lappies Labuschagne was named as the Man of the Match.

The Shimlas’ next match is against Madibaz (Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University) at 19:00 at Shimla Park on Monday 13 February 2012 .
