Maties to tackle Wits in 1st bout

FNB UWC will play FNB UCT in the first round of FNB Varsity Cup in 2019.

With a new Varsity Cup season starting on 4 February 2019 comes another intense tournament of South African rugby action.

Newly promoted UWC will take on UCT in the battle for Cape Town in the first round, while Maties’ first game will be against Johannesburg challengers Wits at the Danie Craven Stadium. UJ will take on last year’s finalists NWU at the UJ Stadium in Johannesburg, CUT who narrowly escaped relegation last year will journey to UP-Tuks, with the Pretoria dwellers looking to start with a bang after a disappointing 2018 campaign.

Maties were victorious last season, after claiming a resounding 40-7 victory over their Northern arch-rivals NWU.

The men from Stellenbosch will be confident going into the season after keeping a host of their players from their winning run.

Varsity Cup manager Xhanti-Lomzi Nesi is ecstatic about the new season as well as the new and old rivalries taking place.

“It’s always an exciting time as we head towards the Varsity Cup season. We have some great match ups in the first round to get us off to an exciting start.

“It will be great to see Maties take on Wits who gave them trouble last season, and of course, we’re excited for what UWC will bring when they play against their neighbours UCT.”
