Maties sneaks the Varsity Cup win at TUKS

What an exciting, Tough Varsity Cupmatch up this was between the age-old traditional North & South warriors with never-say-die action till the very last minute!
The Final Score was TUKS 24-26 MATIES (half-time 14-12)
Thinus De Beer’s two crucial missed penalty kicks were the difference at the end of the day but TUKS kept coming and closed the gap with a try by the spirited replacement lock, Bart le Roux in the last minute!!  You gotta feel for the boys!
