TUT not going “to surrender” to Tuks

With just one victory in the 2024 FNB Varsity Shield competition, FNB TUT will try to move out of the relegation zone when they face Tshwane neighbours and log leaders FNB UP-Tuks at the Tuks Stadium tonight (Friday 5 April) at 19:00.  


The Vikings are currently sixth on the log, level on points with FNB UKZN and one point above bottom team FNB UFH. The Pretoria outfits’ only success came way back in round two when they beat FNB WSU 20-10 at home in the TUT Stadium.  


TUT centre Vuyani Vanqa says they need to believe in themselves more. 


“I think as a team we should believe in one another’s powers more and when a team knows if I break a run, someone is there to clean (out). 


“Even though we have been on a losing streak, there are so many positives we can take from those losses. We still believe that we change things around, we need to believe that we can win.  


“Our position on the log is a reflection of our character and not our capabilities. If we can change our attitude and our character, we surely expose our great abilities as a united TUT Vikings team.” 

With only the one victory under their belts, Vanqa hopes his team leaves everything on the field against the Stripe Generation.  


“For this clash, I am looking forward to seeing TUT click as a team and play our best. We want to say after the match that we gave our best and did not surrender. 


“Every week has been better than a week before when it comes to our preparation, this is one of our best weeks going into to Tshwane derby. The mood in the camp is very positive and focused. We are facing a bigger game.”
