UJ looking to get out of a precarious position

With only three points from five matches and sitting in the relegation bracket of the log, FNB UJ hope to tap into winning ways as there are only a couple of weeks left of the 2024 FNB Varsity Cup competition.  


Despite the less-than-ideal performances so far, speedster Boldwin Hansen has given credit to the Orange Army’s coaching staff.  


“We have a great relationship with all our coaches. They work hard behind the scenes. It’s just unfortunate that the result is not coming our way, but we still believe we can [win].” 


With a couple of narrow losses at the start of the competition, UJ however had to contend with huge defeats as the tournament progressed.  


Hansen says there is just one reason for this.  


“We weren’t consistent enough. We just need to stick to our system and plan to be a greater team. What I liked about our team is that from the start of the competition, the boys pitch at training with an attitude of getting better each time. There was never a day where we had to fight with individuals not doing their part.”  

According to Hansen, the team’s attack force is a factor that has been working for them in the past matches.  


“We’re dangerous on the attack. When we switch on, we do everything to the best of our ability, especially from turnover ball, we switch on immediately and just drive the ball to the end.”  


Hansen shares his thoughts on their last two matches in 2024 against FNB Wits and FNB UWC.  


“We just want to end the season well and collect ten points from these last two games. Our attitude just needs to be better and not give our opponents a chance to attack.”
