UKZN Are Done Talking & Ready To Beat Limpopo University

The University of KwaZulu-Natal Sport Director, Mark Bashe says the time for talking has stopped, and it is now time for action.

UKZN had entered its maiden season of Varsity Football with high expectations after claiming the USSA title earlier this year, but have found the going much tougher than expected.

The east coast outfit has yet to win a game this season heading into the final league round, but face fellow strugglers the University of Limpopo in their final match of the 2018 campaign on Thursday. 

“We have definitely taken a lot of learning from this season,” Bashe said.

“We came into the competition on a high, but quickly found out this is a higher level where there is less space to make mistakes.

“The biggest thing we learnt that we have to stick to one game plan. We thought we needed to change after USSA, but then found that we have to remain consistent in our planning.” 

Bashe believes the experience of now having had a season of Varsity Football behind them will benefit the team going forward.

“After our first three games, the players were still in awe. They were still looking at what was happening around them, and instead of showing off their natural ability and trusting their instincts. They would then return to the dressing room, and say ‘we could have beaten those guys'," he said. 

“It’s time we stop talking. The time for action is now upon us. I am confident of us beating Limpopo tomorrow. We can’t finish the season with just two draws. We have to win. We are going all out to finish the campaign on a high note. We have a lot of pride to play for,” he concluded.
