VARSITY CUP RECAP: NWU 63 โ€” 16 UFS Shimlas

The NWU Eagles continued with their brilliant start to their 2023 campaign with a 63-16 win over NWU Shimlas at the Fanie du Toit Sportsground. 

Shimlas started the game strongly with a try from Michael Annies within the first minute of the game after he stormed over the Eaglesโ€™ defence from his half. The home team showed great character to fight back and score a try through Vernon Paulo.

There was a slight delay as NWUโ€™s Zane Bester was replaced by Jandre Nel following a serious knee injury. For Shimlas, it was William Moffat who left the field with a head injury with Liyema Mgwigwi taking his place.

Things got worse for Shimlas as Chadd Adams was sent to the sin bin for dangerous play in the 28th minute. Two tries from Theuns Pretorius and another one from Naiden Jaarts ensured the Eagles went into half-time with a 32-9 lead.
