Cape Town - In Varsity Shield action on Monday night, CUT kept up their unbeaten record with a 49-40 victory over former Bok coach Peter de Villiers's UWC in Bellville.

The men from Bloemfontein won an entertaining, if ill-tempered clash in Bellville which saw 12 tries, four yellow cards and one red card.

In Pietermaritzburg, UKZN did the season double over the TUT Vikings when they held on for a tense 10-9 victory over the former Varsity Cup team from Pretoria. UKZN, who have now won four matches, moved into second place on the standings in the process.
