Excellent Varsity Shield start by UWC

 Western Province Premier League B Champions,
 University of the Western Cape (UWC) made an
 excellent start to their 2012 Varsity Shield
 campaign. In an excellent display of running
 rugby, the students from Bush, beat their Fort
 Hare counterparts by 36-13. This was sweet
 revenge, for in the corresponding fixture last
 season, Fort Hare sneaked home by 18-17.

 The Bellville students looked dangerous,
 whenever they were in posession and scored an
 early try, via left wing Cheslyn Roberts, from a full
 back line movement. Roberts scored two further
 tries and a penalty try close to the end of the
 match, ensured that UWC left the Eastern Cape
 town of Alice with a bonus point victory.
 Even though Roberts ran in a hat-trick of tries, the
 Man of the Match award went to the UWC captain
 and hooker Charlton van Jaarsveld. The skipper
 led from the front and was always in the thick of
 things. Another player who looked sharp and
 showed why he was part of the 2011 WP under
 21 squad, was scrum-half Freddie Muller. He was
 always a threat on attack and kept the Fort Hare
 defence busy.

 The newly promoted WP Premier League A outfit
 will want to build on this performance and put in a
 challenge for the Shield. This will help them
 qualify for the main tournament, the Varsity Cup in

 An interesting point about last night's game, was
 that in the Varisty Shield and Cup, conversions
 will be worth 3 points, while a penalty and a drop
 goal will be worth only 2 points. This innovation
 was introduced to motivate teams to play more
 enterprsing rugby and go for tries instead of
 penalties or drop goals.

 It is still too early to say whether this innovation
 will have the desired effect. Based on this
 performance from UWC, it might just be
 something which work in their favour.

Clubs buzzing

 By Ierfaan Cassiem

 With all the despair in the mainstream media
 about the departure of Rassie Erasmus as Head
 Professional Coach at WP, spare a thought for all
 those club players who have been sweating it out
 in preparation for the new season. Much has been
 made of the fact that in the Free State there are
 only 5 clubs, compared to the 86 in WP.
 The existence of these 86 clubs, is a sign that the
 game is alive and well down here at the southern
 most tip of Africa. Rassie had 86 clubs to tap int...
