Star FNB UWC wing: I've just been finishing
Pacey left wing Peter Williams - who is studying towards a BA - starred in FNB UWC's 60-26 thrashing of the FNB Madibaz in Cape Town on Monday, scoring his fourth try of the tournament. asked him ...

How did you feel about winning the FNB Player That Rocks award on Monday night?
Look, I'm gonna put it down to teamwork. I've literally been getting the ball from my teammates who have been feeding me and I've just been finishing. Every time I've scored I've dedicated it to them because they provide me with the platform to finish.

Did you miss Gilroy Philander on Monday night as he has been responsible for most of your assists thus far?
Yes, I really missed him. It was his birthday last week. I was hoping that we could showcase our talent again but hopefully when he comes back [from injury] we can show the world what a good combo we are.

You've played in the FNB Varsity Cup for a few years now. What's the difference between this year and the previous ones for you?
As a team, we've been working towards getting better every year. We've achieved that even though we've started slow this year. We've put in a lot of hard work and hard hours in this campaign. Coach Paul [Treu] has been imparting his knowledge on us and because of him we've grown and become better.

Which players do you look up to?
I've always looked up to players like Juan de Jongh and Gio Aplon. They're players who come from our communities and the guys we loved to watch at Newlands. They inspire me.
