The boys are back!

HARD AT WORK: The CPUT rugby team worked up a sweat during their training camp. HARD AT WORK: The CPUT rugby team worked up a sweat during their training camp.

CPUT’s formidable rugby team is ready to return to the FNB Varsity Shield tournament this year. They will be going head to head with Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in their first game, which is scheduled for February 22 in Pretoria.

Last year kicked off with a bang when the FNB CPUT team made their debut in the competition and now they are tirelessly preparing for the 2018 competition, which will see seven teams competing for the title.

Their first home game will be on February 26 against Walter Sisulu University at the CPUT Stadium in Wellington and the team is calling on the whole CPUT community to come out and show their support.

This year’s team captain is Henrico Jacobs. “The team has been working hard. Our preparations have included a training camp, which took place from January 4 to 20 in Wellington,” says Bulelani Mlakalaka, Sport Development Officer for Rugby.

Varsity Shield is played in round robin format while the final games will be knockouts.

Last year’s competition was won by UWC who beat Fort Hare in the final.
