FNB UFS-Shimlas will play in their first-ever FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International final after beating defending champions FNB UCT 21-10 in their semifinal in Bloemfontein. Livewire Flanker, Daniel Maartens, who has been sublime this season was named the FNB Player That Rocks.
Each Varsity Cup Player that Rocks gets a R1500 cheque courtesy of FNB as well as a Samsung Galaxy phone. The player that rocks will wear the pink shorts in the next fixture to raise awareness to the “Keep the Aggro on the field” campaign – taking a stand against violence against women.
Varsity Cup players are gentlemen and in the spirit of the pink pants, the Player that Rocks gets to chose a lady in his life to have 50 pink roses delivered to.
