FNB Vishuis still the team to beat as Shimlas kick off their FNB Res Rugby League

FNB Varsity Cup, Koshuis Rugby

Review
FNB Res Rugby kicked off on 27 July 2018 at the University of the Free State with huge excitement. Five games were played where the 2017 FNB Res Rugby Champions, FNB Vishuis, had to dig deep to beat FNB Kagisho 19-12. The experience of FNB Vishuis pulled the game through after a nail biting game. Shimlas flyhalf Henco Posthumus' tactical kicking was superb and lock Sihle Diniso dominated in the lineouts. Hooker Daniel Victor made a huge difference for FNB Kagisho in broken play. It needs to be said that the game was competitive and an excellent display of FNB Res rugby.

FNB Armentum played well against FNB Veritas securing a well-deserved win 17- 14 with rock solid defence and exciting high tempo running rugby.

Preview
Although FNB Vishuis are still unbeaten and they would want to build momentum and secure a good win over FNB Legatum this coming Friday to secure an early lead in the FNB Res Rugby. FNB Legatum is known for physical rugby and an exciting running backline. FNB Vishuis and FNB Legatum are fielding four teams in round two – a huge ask. FNB Vishuis, seven-time FNB Res Rugby Champions, are still the team to beat.
