Ikey Tigers end 2010 with a bang
FNB UCT ended their 2010 season – a year that promised a lot – with a 43-41 WP Super League win over Helderberg on Saturday.
The Ikeys, losing Varsity Cup finalists (to the Maties) in March, finished the league season in fifth place on the log – having, at one stage, been in with a shout of qualifying for the National Club Championships.
It’s been another long season for the Ikeys, who once again unearthed some new stars – the likes of Don Armand (who has been training with the WP Currie Cup squad in recent weeks) and Marcel Brache (now a Currie Cup player) just two names in a long list.
It remains to be seen whether John Dobson will coach the side in the 2011 Varsity Cup, but he has a more than able deputy in Kevin Foote, who has coached the side in the second half of the Super League season.
The FNB UCT team: 15 Pietie Olivier, 14 Paul Cohen, 13 Marcel Brache, 12 Adrian Kritzinger, 11 Jannie Bester, 10 Tiger Bax, 9 Nick Farrer, 8 Greg Mallett, 7 Ryan Jans, 6 Don Armand (captain), 5 Pallo Manuel, 4 Mike Ledwidge, 3 Grant Kemp, 2 Matt Page, 1 Wes Chetty.
