Semi-finalists decided in Tuks Res Rugby League

FNB Varsity Cup, Koshuis Rugby

FNB Tuks Res Rugby League newcomers FNB AOB have been dealt a harsh lesson regarding university residence rugby and the fact that it is a marathon and not a sprint. FNB AOB ended the first round of matches on top of the log before the June recess but struggled to maintain their winning ways which has since allowed the defending champions, FNB Maroela, to surge to the top.

FNB Boekenhout remain rooted to the bottom of the log and are yet to register a win this season.

The semifinalists have been determined with the final round of matches yet to be played with final standings the only objective for the teams. The top four teams in the FNB Tuks Franchise Rugby League are separated by a point which could effect the log if the front runners drop the ball.

FNB Boekenhout will want to finish the season strongly but it will be a tough assignment considering their poor form thus far with FNB AOB expected to take the points against them.
