Varsity Saga on SuperSport

The 2014 edition of the FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International will forever be etched in everyone's minds as the most-tightly contested tournament to date.


It was capped off with one of the biggest and most dramatic comebacks in the final between FNB NWU-Pukke and FNB UCT Ikey Tigers.


In this two-part series, Supersport will be airing the Varsity Saga, highlighting all the highs and lows of the 2014 FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International campaign with a unique insight into the minds of the coaches and players.


There were major upsets along the way, incredibly tight matches which went down to the wire and pre-tournament favourites were knocked out at the end of the round robin phase.


Heading into the final match of the round robin fixtures, seven of the eight teams were in with a chance of making the play-offs, proving that the 2014 edition was the most-dramatic and tightly contested of all the Varsity Cup campaigns thus far.


In what was meant to be a walk-over, the table topping FNB NWU-Pukke hosted last-placed and winless FNB Wits, who were in a tough relegation battle. The match turned out to be a tightly contested one in a wet Potchefstroom which eventually saw the home side walk away with a narrow 16-8 victory.


In the final, NWU-Pukke looked to have their first-ever title wrapped up with a comfortable 33-15 lead heading into the final stages of the match, however, the proverbial fat lady was not ready to sing yet, and the UCT Ikey Tigers staged a dramatic comeback.


Three tries in the final five minutes secured an unlikely 39-33 victory for the Cape students, to claim their second Varsity Cup title.
