Tuks head coach Jenny van Dyk believes her team can add a third Varsity Netball title to their trophy cabinet.

The last time Tuks bagged the prestigious university title was back in 2019. 

The Pretoria side are gearing up to face defending champions, Maties, in the semi-final on Monday, 11 September and van Dyk believes her team can top the podium. 

“We haven’t won in a while but we have played in a bunch of (other) finals and we have won this competition twice. Yes, why not us? Well obviously, a new competition (semis) starts next week but we are ready.”

Tuks finished the season as the only undefeated team when they beat NWU 67-52 in the last round-robin match – a major confidence boost for the final four. 

“It’s always important to win. We are not afraid of being on top of the log. We are not afraid of going unbeaten into the semifinals, for us it’s about the consistency and getting consistent performances. So it’s about standards. Yes, it is important but more important is the lessons we take out and the preparations that will take us to the semifinals. I am proud of the players but there are still areas that we need to work.”
