Unbeaten Tuks prepared to lock horns with Varsity College

The stage is set as all roads lead to the Tuks Stadium in Pretoria on Friday afternoon (17:30) when high-flying FNB UP-Tuks take on FNB Varsity College in the final of the 2024 FNB Varsity Shield final.  


Tuks have not lost a single this season displaying relentless performances mixed with exciting rugby. Solid upfront, the Stripe Generation forwards have been a huge hurdle for their opponents.  


In-form hooker Edwin Till praises his side for the outstanding rugby they have played.  


“I’m quite privileged to be able to score a few tries this season, I have to give credit to my team (as) without them it would not be possible. It’s definitely a goal to score a few more in the final, if any way I can help the team I will do so.” 


He does however in Varsity College they face a rather stubborn side. 


“A final is a different game, everything you achieved throughout that’s on hold for now, it all comes down to the final. We know it’s going to be a big clash, Varsity College did well to make a come-back (last time) with 14 men on the pitch … they will be a big challenge (but) we must focus and give our best.  


“We knew what they are going to bring to the table, they’re impressive. The previous time we played them, they mauled well, and I think we can do a better job in defending and stopping their mauls.” 


Till believe Tuks are ready to be back in the FNB Varsity Cup next year. 


“We are ready to go back. We were ready before the Shield season, we just had to go through this road. I think if we played Varsity Cup this season, we would’ve competed well, we are a good side. Next year we will be back with a bang, now the focus is on the final, the preparations are going well, and we will be playing in front of our fans.”
