FNB Rhodes will play their last game of their Varsity Shield campaign as they take on FNB UKZN on Monday.
FNB Rhodes have had a fairly bleak run in the tournament, losing all of their games so far. The team looked like they were going to provide FNB WSU with a tough game last week but failed to conquer, as they were beaten 45-15.
Captain Jono Braans said that the guys are looking forward to Monday’s game and “want to end the season off on a good note. We know it will be tough in Durban but we’re hoping to cause them some problems.”
The game kicks off at 18:30 on Monday 20 March at the Howard College Rugby Stadium in Durban.
FNB Rhodes starting XV: 1 Mwambu Njolomba, 2 Uzu Nyanda, 3 Chris Whiting, 4 Jesse Rich, 5 Joshua Parsons, 6 Jonathan Braans, 7 Owethu Mkolo, 8 Devon Barnard, 9 Zuko Zote, 10 Mike Steel, 11 Jordan Waugh, 12 Ryan Horne, 13 Nic Butler, 14 Keagan Deponselle, 15 Daniel Coughlan
