Heartbreak for Madibaz

Staff Reporter

THE FNB NMMU Madibaz pushed the unbeaten Maties to the limit before bowing out 16-15 in an exciting varsity Cup semifinal in Stellenbosch last night. Meanwhile, a rampant UP-Tuks scored a runaway 61-24 win over University of Johannesburg in Pretoria.

Stellenbosch University will take on Pretoria University for the second consecutive year in the Varsity Cup rugby final after registering contrasting victories in last night’s semifinals.

Last year, Maties and Tukkies met in Pretoria, with Tukkies going on to lift their maiden title. This year, the scene shifts to the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch with hosts Maties yet to lose a game this season.
