The Shimlas from the University of the Free State (UFS) have extended their remarkable record in the Bloemfontein City League. They won a tough encounter with the university’s second best side, the Irawas, by 17 points to 5. The win secured all sorts of records for the Shimlas, who have been the dominant rugby force in the city for years.

This season’s victory marks the fifth consecutive win for the Shimlas and also the tenth victory since 2000. All in all, the Shimlas have won 42 championships in the competition’s history of 118 championships, more than a third of the total.

There was more good news for the university, especially regarding the future of Kovsie rugby. The U/21 team from the UFS won the second-league cup, trumping the team from CUT by 41 points to 21.
