FNB UCT-Ikeys ran in 10 tries to secure a 90 -8 victory over FNB CUT-Ixias in the FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International on the Green Mile.
A brace from both Warren Seals, Ryan Dugmore and Khanyo Ngcukana, as well as six other scorers handed Ikeys a record breaking victory over the tournament’s newcomers.
Ikeys got off to an ideal start as they took the game to the visitors. A five-metre line-out resulted in the home side setting up a driving maul and bulldozed their way over the line. Jason Klaasen emerged with the ball to hand UCT a 5-0 lead after three minutes as the try went unconverted.
The home side doubled their lead in the ninth minute when flyhalf Warren Seals stepped his way through the Ixias defence from the 22. He brushed himself off and converted the try to extend the lead to 13-0.
It was one way traffic as the hosts pilled on the pressure and were soon rewarded with their third try when Ryan Dugmore took a quick tap from back of scrum, stepped his way through the CUT defence and stretched for the line to dot the ball down on the line. Seals added the extra points to extend the lead to 21-0 after 18 minutes.
UCT brought up their bonus point in the 33rd minute when Khanyo Ngcukana rounded off a great team effort which started from a blistering run by hooker Chad Solomon. The ball was quickly sent out wide and found Ngcukana who trotted over the line for an easy score under the uprights. Seals landed his conversion of the game to take the score to 29-0.
Both teams were soon down to 14 men each as first Ixias’ Frans Sisita was sent to the bin for repeated infringements at the breakdown and then, two minutes later, Dylan Sage of Ikeys got his marching orders for a late charge without the use of his arms.
The second half got underway with an explosive 60-metre run from Seals who brushed aside three defenders and cantered over the try line to grab his second try of the match. He duly converted the try to extend the lead to 37-0 after 42 minutes.
Chad Solomon got Ikeys’ sixth try when he picked the ball up off the back of a ruck and shoved his way over the try line. Thomas Bednall added the extra points. Xoli continued the rout as he dotted over for UCT’s seventh try of the match. Bednall’s second conversion took the score to 53-0 after 55 minutes.
Four tries in the space of eight minutes extended Ikeys’ lead to 82-0 after 70 minutes as Sage, Guy Swikkard, Luke Stringer and Dugmore added five points each with Bednall adding nine points with the boot.
CUT got a consolation try in the 77th minute when Dean Kouprihanoff score Ixias first points in the game, which Arrie Vosloo converted. Ikeys had the final say though, as Ngcukana grabbed his brace in the 79th minute. Bednall added the extra points as the final hooter sounded to secure a mammoth 90-8 victory.
