UKZN managed to win their very first Varsity Shield. They faced a Wits side that was yet to taste defeat and it was a tall order. The question now is where to next for the IMPI? I spoke to their humble, driven and courageous leader. Captain Lwazi Ngcungama tells us about the season, building on this piece of history and their Varsity Cup dream!

Benedict: Hi, how are you?

Lwazi: I am well, thank you.

Benedict: What a year for you boys. What does it mean to you guys to not only win the Varsity Shield but also for the first time in the Varsity’s history?

Lwazi: It is an amazing feeling to be the first Varsity team to have won the Shield campaign because we worked very hard from pre-season to in-season for one goal and to have finally achieved it as a squad was just magical.

Benedict: The mission is to have a KZN representative in the Varsity Cup. Considering there is just a handful of survivors from last year. Are you guys ready to build on this win next season as a squad?

Lwazi: The majority of the squad this year was made up of youngsters who will still be around next year and since it is a promotion year we will be looking to build on this win for a better performance next year.

Benedict: Is there some disappointment that there is no promotion this season?

Lwazi:I can say there were some disappointments but we still had to overcome them and pull off this win in order to stay in contention for next years campaign.

Benedict: You scored a try in the match against UJ (University of Johannesburg) last year, and managed another this season. You have a fever for the white line in big games?

Lwazi: Yeah it’s always good to score tries but it’s all credit to the other 14 men on the field with me.

Benedict: It’s finally happened this season, what do you attribute to finally getting it right?

Lwazi: The team culture was a major factor this season, guys wanted to play for each other and it it showed on the field.

Benedict: From a personal point of view, where to next for your rugby career?

Lwazi: I really don’t know hey, I’ll be playing for Impi in the upcoming Moor Cup and hopefully one day with the good Lord’s grace I can get to wear that black and white Sharks jersey hey.

Benedict: If you were to pick one moment that defined your season. What was it?

Lwazi: I have to say this past final game where I could see that the boys were really hungry for this win and it happened, we won and it was amazing.

Benedict: Thanks Lwazi, enjoy the celebrations!

Lwazi :P leasure bro!
