FNB Varsity Young Guns bringing the heat in the u20 tournament

With the FNB Varsity Cup in full swing it's time to brace yourselves for a fresh surge of excitement as the eight FNB Varsity Young Guns teams begin their campaigns in the u-20 competition kicking-off on Monday, 4 March, 2024. Defending champions the NWU Young Guns will get the tournament underway and will be hoping to repeat alongside their Varsity Cup brothers.



Since its inception in 2012, the Young Guns competition has been the battleground for under-20 teams from the top eight university rugby squads in South Africa. In the spirit of high-stakes rivalry, teams earn their spot based on their first team's performance in the Varsity Cup competition. This year sees UWC joining as the new team while Tuks drop out after the senior team were relegated to the Shield competition.


The eight Young Guns teams, divided into two pools, will engage in epic home and away duels where the quest for supremacy unfolds with four points for a win, two for a draw, a bonus point for four or more tries, and another for losing by a mere 7 points or less.


In Pool A the Wits, UFS, CUT, and UCT Young Guns locks horns, while Maties, NWU, UJ and newcomers UWC bring the heat in Pool B.


Last year's final went down to the wire with the Eagles beating Maties by just a single point to be crowned champions. NWU will open the 2024 competition against FNB UJ at 3pm at the Fanie Du Toit stadium in Potchefstroom.



All Young Guns games serve as pulsating curtain-raisers to the FNB Varsity Cup matches. When you grab your TICKETS for the FNB Varsity Cup game, you're not just getting a seat; you're securing a front-row view of the Young Guns fixtures as well.


The heat is on!
