FNB Players That Impressed - Varsity Shield Round 6

Just one round remains for the 2024 FNB Varsity Shield before the semi-finals are set to take place on Friday 19 April. The table is set for explosive action on Friday 12 April when FNB UP-Tuks and FNB Madibaz clash to determine who will finish top of the log and claim bragging rights.  


Here are some of the standout players from round 6. 


Kyle Cyster (FNB UP-Tuks) 

Log leaders FNB UP-Tuks taught Tshwane neighbours FNB TUT a rugby lesson on Friday night (81-10) with Kyle Cyster producing a stellar performance. He showed what consistency matched with class is, orchestrating the backline and launching endless attacks for the Stripe Generation. The result? He claimed three tries for himself and earned himself the FNB Player That Rocks award.  

High School: Hottentots-Holland High School  

Provincial Representation: Provincial U19, Provincial U20/21 


Kehan Myburgh (FNB Madibaz) 

Kehan Myburgh’s kicking boots were the difference in the tussle between FNB Madibaz and FNB Varsity College, with the former holding on for a vital victory. The Madibaz fullback landed some sensational penalties and conversions from all corners of the field, contributing ten points to his team’s tally. This secured them a home semi-final spot.  

High School: Grey High School

Ntsako Mhlanga (FNB CPUT) 

Despite just falling short against FNB WSU on home turf, FNB CPUT put in a solid performance against the visitors from the Eastern Cape. The home team’s Ntsako Mhlanga ticked all his basic boxes on the day and showed his versatility. The talented lock, towering over his opponents at 1.94 metres, looked good with the ball in hand and his hard work was rewarded when he got his name added to the try-scoring sheet. 

High School: Hoërskool Hercules  

Provincial Representation: Western Province 10s 


Kamvelihle Fatyela (FNB UFH)  

Kamvelihle Fatyela led from the front in the victory over FNB UKZN and was duly rewarded with the FNB Player That Rocks. The UFH captain demonstrated strength, commitment and exceptional handling skills. His solid tackles and high work rate in the scrums resulted in two of his tries. His leadership capabilities were instrumental in bursting through UKZN's defence.
