FNB Varsity Cup - Players who impressed - Round 2

Updated: Feb 28

Round 2 of the 2024 FNB Varsity Cup brought a mixed bag of results. FNB NWU Eagles dominated their encounter against FNB UWC, FNB Wits staged a dramatic comeback against FNB CUT and FNB Maties won the Cape derby against FNB UCT Ikeys.  


Here are some of the standout players from round 2. 


Prince Nkabinde  (FNB UJ)  

Despite a narrow loss at home against FNB UFS Shimlas, the Orange Army’s Prince Nkabinde was a real livewire for his side. He covered a lot of ground throughout the match, scoring two tries in the process and becoming the all time leading try scorer for UJ. He was also named as the FNB Player That Rocks.  


Setshaba Mokoena (FNB Wits) 

The full-back played a vital role in the Witsies’ come-from-behind victory against CUT. He was dangerous with ball in hand and this led to a fantastic try. He also contributed with the boot (three conversions and a penalty). Mokoena was also solid under the high balls the opponents lobbed his way.  


Keano Windvogel (FNB NWU Eagles) 

The winger bagged a brace and was duly named as the FNB Player That Rocks showing sheer brilliance on the field with unmatched pace and skill. His quick footwork resulted in two tries for himself and kept the UWC defenders guessing throughout. Windvogel consistently gained ground and was crucial for his team. 


Juan Mostert (FNB Maties) 

Playing in the number 10 jersey, Mostert slotted a conversion and a penalty in a tightly contested affair against UCT. His five-point contribution was the difference in the end. He shared his thoughts after the match: “We came here with a plan, and we managed to stay on that, plus we executed everything well. UCT is a great tough side, personally doing well against a team like them boosts my confidence even more.”
