The FNB Varsity Shield final between the Cape Peninsula University of Technology the Walter Sisulu University All Blacks will kick off at 19h00 on Sunday, and will be broadcast live on the SuperSport Rugby channel (211).

CPUT will be out to defend the title they won in 2019, while WSU are hoping to lift the trophy for the first time.

Final round match wraps:

FNB TUT Vikings 64 (38) FNB WSU 8 (8)

TUT ended their best-ever FNB Varsity Shield campaign on a high as they ran in nine tries to beat this year’s finalists, WSU.

Having already secured a spot in Sunday's final against CPUT, the All Blacks opted to rest 13 first-choice players, which made it somewhat easier for TUT.

Take nothing away from the Vikings – who finished third on the log with five wins from six matches – but an WSU team operating at full capacity is no easy affair as the understrength Tekkies found out in the penultimate round.


FNB TUT Vikings – Tries: Goabaona Mokone, Lusanda Xakwana, Laro Delport (2), Wanga Shumi, Franco Stassen (2), Vuyani Vanqa, Nyakallo Masitha. Conversions: Xakwana (8). Penalty goal: Xakwana.

FNB WSU All Blacks – Try: Mbulelo Totose. Penalty goal: Sakhele Ngeno.

FNB UKZN Impi 40 (17) FNB UFH Blues 33 (12)

The UKZN Impi secured fourth place on the FNB Varsity Shield log by beating the fifth-placed UFH Blues.

The Impi were outscored by five tries to four but four penalty goals from fullback Sibongile Novuka helped them claim a third win of the campaign.


FNB UKZN Impi – Tries: Charl Cuttings, Jarryd Nicholls, Llawdden Roux, Johan Maritz. Conversions: Sibongile Novuka (4). Penalty goals: Novuka (4).

FNB UFH Blues – Tries: Merlin du Plessis, Lukho Jongizulu, Yamkela Mzozoyana, Brandt Fields, Kamvelihle Fatyela. Conversions: Fields (4).

FNB DUT Rhinus 3 (3) FNB Rhodes 46 (15)

Rhodes broke a 13-match losing streak in the FNB Varsity Cup after finding their feet in the final quarter of their meeting against DUT.


FNB DUT Rhinos – Penalty goal: Nelson Mhlongo.

FNB Rhodes – Tries: Cameron Marais, Damian Morrow, Simamkele Ngantweni, Athenkosi Nkewana, Simelela Mbanzi (2), Dimitri Mngqolo, Abongo Manka. Conversions: Matthew Royle (3).
