FNB Caput top the FNB NWU internal res rugby log

FNB Varsity Cup, Koshuis Rugby

Last year’s runners-up FNB Caput top the FNB NWU internal res rugby log going into the June recess, with FNB Over de Voor hot on their heels, trailing by a single point.

The FNB NWU internal res rugby league saw some changes going into the 2018 season, with FNB Excelsior and FNB Laureus being relegated from the competition and PUK U19/A coming in as the eighth team as opposed to the nine teams last year. The res league is in full swing, with the month of May seeing three rounds of matches played. The biggest shock so far this season was FNB Over de Voor, who pulled off a narrow 12-10 victory against FNB Caput on Monday 7 May. FNB Patria then beat FNB Over de Voor 12-9 on Friday 11 May, with FNB Caput beating FNB Villagers 18-7, allowing them to edge ahead on the log. On Tuesday 15 May, FNB Patria proved why they have been the internal res league champions for five years running when they beat FNB Caput 24-13, having been the sole team to win all three of their games in only eight days.

Preview
The FNB NWU internal res league continues on Friday 20 July, when log-leaders FNB Caput take on FNB Villagers and FNB Over de Voor gun for the top position on the log when they take on FNB Veritas. FNB Patria will be looking to secure an easy win when they meet FNB Heimat, who are yet to win a game this season.
