Frederick Marx relishing first Shield outing for Varsity College

Debutants FNB Varsity College had a dream start to the 2024 Varsity Shield campaign when they handed a solid drubbing to FNB TUT (27-0).




Fly-half and Glenwood old boy Frederick Marx says it is fantastic to participate in the Varsity Shield and play with some familiar faces.


“Lock Werner Coetzee was in matric when I was in Grade 8, we had a brotherhood like no other. And now, to be playing with him is a privilege. Last year, I played with a couple of my teammates in other competitions and Varsity Shield will give me more game time, and as a junior, that’s what you need.”


Marx also gives credit to Varsity College head coach Jeremy McLaren, who has coached him previously, for his improving performances.


“Coach Jeremy has been very instrumental in helping me express myself and he gives us freedom. When I got to the Sharks last year, he was our skills coach, and that is where our journey started. He has a culture at Varsity College where everyone can express themselves, and we all have a say. If something isn't working, we chat about it, and then we look for solutions.”


Marx says they will have to up their performance in the first game if they fancy a chance of going any further in their debut season.


“We are calling all Varsity College supporters to join us and cheer on our team as we (aim to) make it a memorable season.”
