Cape Town - The Varsity Cup celebrates a decade of
exciting and entertaining rugby.
In 2015 the premier intervarsity competition
introduced the Varsity Cup Dream Team concept which saw standout players being
selected in the team of the tournament to play in an exhibition match against
the Junior Springboks in preparation for the World Rugby Under-20
will be played at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch and will be coached
either by Hawies Fourie or Pote Human.
Announcement of the team will take place
immediately after the Varsity Cup final in Pretoria on Monday, April 17.
Cup-winning Ikeys head coach, John Dobson and 2016 Varsity Cup-winning head coach Jonathan Mokuena selected who they thought should be in the Dream Team
ahead of the announcement.
Dobson, who is the current
Western Province Currie Cup head coach, believes that the Varsity Cup has
provided an ideal platform for provincial coaches to spot talent.
Cup is such an amazing competition and gives players an opportunity to take
their rugby career to the next level,” says Dobson.
