The FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International has its semi-finalists for 2015.

Defending champions FNB Ikeys and FNB Pukke joined FNB Tuks and FNB Shimlas in next week’s semi-finals after Rugby that Rocks delivered pulsating action on Monday night.

Every single match mattered on Monday night and it showed as players from all teams played their hearts out to help their teams get over the line. Shimlas retained their unbeaten run, beating a gutsy Pukke 29-26, but it was not enough to ensure a top of the log finish. That honour went to Tuks, who managed an impressive 8-40 victory away from home against NMMU.

In Cape Town, Ikeys had a brutal match against UJ, but managed to hold on for an 8-0 victory at the Green Mile, while Maties crushed CUT 8-53 in Bloemfontein.

The win for Maties means CUT end their first season in Varsity Cup without a single point.

In the FNB Varsity Shield, FNB Wits continued their dominant run and went top of the table with a crushing 5-50 victory over TUT. FNB UWC also notched up an impressive win, beating FNB Fort Hare 8-58, meaning they still have a chance to make it to the final of this year’s competition.
