UWC Rugby make it three-from-three in FNB Varsity Shield with win at TUT
Not even a home-ground advantage at the TUT Stadium and last week’s victory over FNB Rhodes could prevent FNB TUT from an 0-31 defeat at the hands of FNB UWC.

The visitors bullied the Pretoria-based team from the get-go with winger Will Vraagom crossing the try-line within five minutes after a strong scrum in the middle of the field.

Hooker Mauritz Swart added his name to the score sheet in the 11th minute before he completed his brace with a cheeky run in the opposition’s 22. Conwill Conradie added two conversions for a comfortable half-time lead of 19-0.

UWC picked up where they left off when Elkan Willemse slipped through the TUT defence and offloaded to Conradie who crossed over for the fourth try of the day.

The visitors closed off their Pretoria party with Romuald Nsombamanya’s try in the 73rd minute.

Next up for Paul Treu's charges will be their first home match of the season, on Thursday, 9 March against FNB WSU (kickoff 19h00).
