FNB Varsity Shield - Players Who Impressed - Round 2

Former FNB Varsity Cup champions FNB UP-Tuks have started their climb to the top in scintillating form with two out of two victories in the 2024 FNB Varsity Shield competition. Hot on their heels are debutants FNB Varsity College while FNB Madibaz and FNB WSU round out the top four on the points table.


Here are some of the standout players from round 2.



Mauritz Maritz (FNB TUT)

TUT made it two for two for the Pretoria-based teams with their hard-fought victory over WSU where centre Mauritz Maritz was dominant in midfield and with the boot, slotting two penalties and two conversions. He duly collected the FNB Player That Rocks award for his performance.



Kyle Erasmus (FNB Madibaz)

The Madibaz forwards were in complete control of proceedings in the teams’ emphatic victory over FNB UKZN. This was despite a late change of venue that could have easily disrupted their rhythm. Leading from the front was hooker Kyle Erasmus who scored his second try in this year’s competition. He once again put in a solid performance and the opposition should be aware of the danger he poses.



Frederick Marx (FNB Varsity College)

Varsity College are continuing to impress with their style of play in their first season in the Varsity Shield and flyhalf Frederick Marx has been a key component of their success so far. His offensive kicking has lead to several tries and he picked up the FNB Player That Rocks award in their win over UFH.



Ethan Burger (FNB UP-Tuks)

Tuks romped to a comprehensive victory over FNB CPUT in Pretoria and prop Ethan Burger played a vital role. He brought fluidity to the forwards and in the process scored two tries. He also broke the opposition’s defensive line on numerous occasions throughout the match. It was a brilliant performance from a modern prop that can initiate attack and win scrums.
