FNB CPUT ready to rock

PLAYERS THAT ROCK: The FNB CPUT Varsity Shield team. PLAYERS THAT ROCK: The FNB CPUT Varsity Shield team.

The FNB CPUT rugby team is ready and raring for their first home game in the FNB Varsity Shield tournament and call on the whole CPUT community to back their boys.

The team will go head to head with FNB TUT at the CPUT Sports Stadium in Bellville at 6.30PM on Thursday 21 February.

After a defeat against the FNB Madibaz earlier this week the team is hoping for a home ground advantage and call on their supporters to fill the stadium.

Head coach Ricky Petersen said the team has adopted the slogan one team, one family. As part of their preparations the team has been attending training camps. “We may not go into this competition as the favourites but we will surely go into this competition as proud ambassadors of CPUT. We have a good and talented squad of players and a good team captain in Lunathi Nxele and he will be surrounded by good leaders like Ralton October and Keadon Consol just to name a few.”

  • Anyone who wishes to attend the game can buy their tickets at the Bellville, District Six and Wellington campus cash offices before 2pm on match day, or between 2pm and 7pm at the Stadium.
  • Tickets are R10 for students who present their student card and R20 for everyone else. Grand stand tickets cost R30. Students who need transport from their campus (leaving 4.30pm on match day from Wellington and District Six campus) to Bellville pay an extra R10.
