I was most impressed by Fiji they’re big and they’re fast and the Bokkies were fast and SMALL in comparison.

Jamba Ulengo on our team was impressive, maybe the WP boys should contract him to get some experience he’s big and fast too.

Now in his second year of FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International rugby, 21-year-old Ulengo told “We (at Shimlas) play to enjoy – that’s all that matters.

“At the same time, however; the Varsity Cup is a good platform for young guys, like myself, to get exposure.”

Jamba was first noticed while he was still attending primary school at Fauna in Bloemfontein. He was actually a very competitive athlete in those days, a 100m sprinter – which is no surprise!


Fiji won the Dubai Rugby Sevens for the first time on Saturday, hammering New Zealand 44-0 in the semi-finals before crushing South Africa 29-17 in the final.

It was an astonishing show of Sevens expertise by the south sea islanders as they handed a worst defeat ever to the New Zealanders, who had won the first tournament in the IRB World Sevens Series at Australia’s Gold Coast last month.

It was the first time in 120 matches that New Zealand had failed to score in World Sevens Series matches and the defeat was even heavier than the 43-14 thumping they received at the hands of Fiji in the Cup quarter-finals at the George Sevens in 2005.
