FNB Madibaz rugby player Johan Lombard was happy with his efforts after contributing 16 points to the Nelson Mandela University outfit’s Varsity Shield win over Rhodes last week.
The 20-year-old inside centre was the Player that Rocks on Friday after crossing for two tries and kicking three conversions.
“I think it was a good overall team performance that led to the final result,” he said of the 50-0 win.
“It was nice to get the award, but we played a selfless game and made sure that we tried to get the ball wide.
“It was a matter of sticking to our structures and I just focused on what was expected from me in an individual capacity.”
Madibaz now turn their attention to a clash tomorrow with Cape Peninsula University of Technology,
“I believe we have the ability to do well, but we just have to make sure we keep our focus for the full 80 minutes,” said Lombard.
The Madibaz side are hoping to return to the top-flight next year and promotion will go to the team with the most log points over the 2019 and 2020 tournaments.
Although they suffered a slight setback with a loss to Walter Sisulu University, they still head the combined log.
The latest overall standings are (2019 and 2020): Madibaz 41 (9), CPUT 34 (9), WSU 30 (9), UKZN 17 (8), Fort Hare 14 (8), TUT 9 (8), Rhodes 5 (9).
