A lot at stake for UCT Ikeys

FNB UCT Ikeys are still very much in contention for the top prize in the 2024 FNB Varsity Cup competition. 

This is according to flanker Enos Ndiao who says there is a lot at stake for the Tigers.  


"The team’s confidence is still high … We have secured a semi-final spot so we can take much confidence from that while remembering there’s still a long way to go with a lot of hard work.  


"We just feel like we need to be a bit more consistent in building pressure in the game … if we can apply pressure constantly and minimise our errors we can be dangerous." 


Ndiao has applauded a school rugby development for the role it played in his rugby career.  


The Kenyan-born, in his second season with the Tigers, was part of the Western Province team for the U16 Grant Khomo Rugby Week back in 2018 alongside teammate and fullback Duran Koevort.  


Ndiao says he is blessed to have gone through the national school rugby week.  

"Grant Khomo was a great experience and I learnt a lot from it, however not everyone who plays in the prestigious tournament ends up still playing high-level rugby years later. So, I’m blessed that my path has led me here and to have (had) other opportunities.”  


He is hoping and dreaming of going far with his rugby career while balancing his books at the same time, says Ndiao, in his second year at UCT and majoring in Film Studies and English. 


⁠"I want to prioritise my studies while trying my best to get given opportunities to play high-level rugby after the Ikeys. 


"I hope to go overseas at some point in my career and play rugby there. That has been something I grew up wishing (for) and I can only do it when I am working hard."
