VARSITY CUP SPOTLIGHT: UWC scrumhalf Herschel Jantjies has been rewarded for his brilliant performances with a call-up to the 2017 Varsity Cup Dream Team that will play a friendly match against the Junior Springboks in Stellenbosch on April 25.

Jantjies played a major role in UWC's Varsity Shield-winning campaign and finds himself named on the bench for a side that will be captained by Maties' explosive fullback Craig Barry. 

Barry, Duncan Saal and Kobus van Dyk, are Maties' representatives named in the starting XV -  that UP-Tuks dominates - and a further three players - Johan Momsen, Theo Stapelberg and Michal Haznar - on the bench. 

Tuks has seven players - Sibahle Maxwane, Impi Visser, Tinus de Beer, Andre Warner, Aston Fortuin, Neethling Fouche and Andrew Beerwinkel - in the starting XV while Pukke has been rewarded with two spots - Loftus Morrison and Wilmar Arnoldi - in the run-on team.

The remainder of the starting XV is made up of Aphiwe Dyantyi (UJ), Kevin Kaba (NMMU-Madibaz) and Daniel Maartens (Shimlas).

UJ has a further two players - Johannes Snyman and Nico Du Plessis - on the bench while Shimlas is also represented by Phumzile Maqondwana, who starts the game on the bench.

There is no space for any player from UCT-Ikeys and CUT-Ixias.

The team will be coached by Tuks' Pote Human as reward for claiming the 2017 Varsity Cup title.
