Cohen Jasper collects his prize after passing the test

FNB Varsity Cup

FNB CUT fullback Cohen Jasper has finally driven off in his Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 SX AT courtesy of Hertz Car Rental.

Jasper was revealed as the winner of the Overall Player That Rocks award in the 2021 FNB Varsity Cup after the final on 31 May but had to get his driver’s licence before he could pick up his prize, which he did on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old IT student also has to complete his studies and graduate with a university degree in order to keep the car.

'Hertz is very proud to be part of the Varsity Cup,' said Julian Visagie, Chief Operating Officer at Hertz South Africa. 'We believe Jasper has unbelievable talent and is definitely a star of the future. We wish him many happy miles with his new wheels.'

Jasper scored seven tries in this year’s FNB Varsity Cup, including the winner in their first-ever win against FNB Maties.

During the FNB Varsity Cup, Cheetahs coach Hawies Fourie compared Jasper to Springbok wing Cheslin Kolbe, so it was no surprise when the CUT star went on to play for the Cheetahs in the Currie Cup Premier Division.
