I see early betting out with the books unwilling to split Maties and Pukke - to my surprise. Maties at home is a tough prospect any day of the week. Matt Proudfoot is gone, Kabamba Floors came through the system at Maties and will be much better equipped for the job.

Maties -1.5 @ evens

A mate of mines son is in the broader Tuks squad (Varsity Shield sadly this year) and I went to watch some warm up games against Wits on Friday

Not sure if Wits were missing any players but Tuks won fairly comfortably in the Probables v Probables and the Possibles v Possibles was evenly matched

Not sure whether to read anything into that but perhaps Wits not that strong this year

Seems like Tuks put on a good show! If they're dominating in the warm-ups , it might hint that Wits could be facing some tough competition this year. Worth keeping an eye on for sure!

I see Shimlas v Ikeys points line is 61.5 now

I agree with the money and make that my best bet on the card (by Varsity Cup standards so won't be asking the bank for credit)

Shimlas love to entertain and their semi against UCT had 95 points and the match before that against CUT over 100

Outrights that appeal are all way too short.

Taking Shimla's points over 61.5 into Maties over 54.5 @ 5/2

and to win
Shimla's/CUT/Maties @ 21/4

Didn't get to watch as much as I hoped but best bet arrived however narrow miss on CUT handicap meant a losing start but far better than previous years so actually I feel like a winner :lol:

Varsity Shield Thursday and WSB have prices

After a chat with Darren Holliday on Twitter the -45.5 Tuks away to Fort Hare may not be big enough
