Shimlas start Varsity Cup victoriously!
2014-02-04

Kovsies’ Shimlas gave the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) a fierce welcome in their first Varsity Cup match on Monday night at Shimla Park in Bloemfontein.

Shimlas beat Wits 31–15 in the first round of the 2014 Varsity Cup Rugby tournament. The home side took the lead on the scoreboard early on with two converted tries.

Wits, who still played in the Varsity Shield tournament last year, managed to score a try seven minutes before halftime. However, a penalty kick by Shimlas’ fly-half, Gouws Prinsloo, put the Kovsie team in an 18–5 lead at the end of the first half. The second half saw both sides score two more tries, attaining a four-try bonus point on the log for Shimlas.

Proud Shimla captain, Elandre Huggett, was named the Player that Rocks after the match. Shimlas will face NWU Pukke in this coming Monday’s round two fixtures at the Fanie du Toit Stadium in Potchefstroom on 10 February 2014.

Shimla scorers
Tries: Oupa Mohoje, Divandre Strydom, Fanie van der Walt, Tienie Burger
