New boys top Tuks FNB Res Rugby log

FNB Varsity Cup, Koshuis Rugby

Internal rugby at the University of Pretoria has undergone a name change in 2018 with the league now known as the FNB Tuks Franchise Rugby League and the changes include a new team with the FNB Academy Old Boys joining the fray.

The FNB Academy Old Boys (FNB AOB) was created to allow players that enjoy rugby but do not belong to a koshuis to play rugby while studying at the University of Pretoria.

The initiative is already paying dividends as FNB AOB find themselves on top of the log after the first round of matches while FNB Boekenhout seem to be having a similar season to 2017 as they are rooted to the bottom of the log.

The league is currently on a break for university examinations and the June vacation with the action resuming on Tuesday, 17 July 2018.

Preview
The current defending champions, FNB Maroela, will look to move to the top of the log with what should be a fairly easy win over perennial underachievers, FNB Boekenhout. Former FNB Res Rugby champions, FNB Mopanie, are determined to win the Tuks league in order to return to contest for higher honours and their Round 2 journey begins against FNB Onderstepoort.

FNB AOB have a bye.
