Five FNB Varsity Shield players who impressed (Rounds 3 & 4)

FNB Varsity Shield


VarsityCup.co.za selects the standout players from the weekend’s matches in Pretoria.

KEITH CHIWARA (FNB UFH BLUES)

The Blues forwards have fired this season to lay the platform for four consecutive wins. That said, credit must go to Chiwara for translating much of that forward dominance into territory and scoring opportunities. The Zimbabwe Sables flyhalf was named the FNB Player That Rocks in both of the recent fixtures at the University of Pretoria. He scored 17 points in the match against the FNB WSU All Blacks on Sunday.


IWAAN BLOYS (FNB CPUT)

Bloys enjoyed a busy and productive weekend for a successful FNB CPUT side. The outside centre made some big contributions on defence, and scored three tries – including a brace against FNB DUT.

BUBELE GONGQA (FNB WSU ALL BLACKS)

FNB WSU struggled to make an impact at the set pieces against a more fancied FNB UFH Blues pack on Sunday. The introduction of Gongqa in the second half, however, provided them with some impetus at the scrums and around the park. The powerful hooker was one of the few standouts for the All Blacks.


MENZI MABASO (FNB UKZN IMPI)

Mabaso continues to make an impression with his robust carries and spectacular finishes. The No 8 was part of a dominant pack that set up a bonus-point win against FNB DUT on Friday. The match against the FNB TUT Vikings on Sunday was in the balance until Mabasao bulldozed his way through the defence to score the winning try.

RYAN MAREE (FNB UFH BLUES) Like Chiwara, Maree is thriving behind a dominant pack of forwards. The Blues centre scored a brace in the big win against FNB Rhodes, and crossed the line again in the fixture against the FNB WSU All Blacks.
