FNB Varsity Cup: Players who impressed (Round 4)

Updated: Mar 15, 2023

With four rounds left in the 2023 FNB Varsity Cup, a picture is beginning to emerge of the possible semi-final contenders. And it doesn’t look like defending champions FNB UP-Tuks will be in the mix after their fourth consecutive loss.

Here are our standout players from round 4.

Tino Swanepoel (FNB NWU Eagles)

The Eagles are still sitting comfortably at the top of the log after sending Tuks packing. Swanepoel was in the thick of things for NWU with two tries and also played an integral part in his team’s defence. The fullback’s overall contribution was recognised with the Player That Rocks award.

Grant de Jager (FNB Maties)

For a while it looked like a certain victory over FNB Wits might be slipping from their hands, but Maties managed to pull it through in the end. De Jager combined well with his centre partner and his all-round performance was impressive too. He looked threatening every time he had the ball, resulting in a try and the award for the Player That Rocks.

Kwezi Dlamini (FNB UFS Shimlas)

It may not have been the result Shimlas wanted against FNB UCT, but the visitors nonetheless gave it their all in front of the Ikeys Tigers crowd. Dlamini stood tall in defence for the Free State team, putting in more than his fair share of vital tackles. The number 8 also scored a try.

Ricoman Titus (FNB CUT)

It didn’t look like being on the road bothered Titus too much, as the CUT fullback was on fire against FNB UJ. In a game raining tries, Titus dotted down three times to contribute 15 points to his team’s victory. He was quick on the ball and played a big part in CUT dominating proceedings.
