The NWU Varsity Cup team may be seen to some as the pride of Potch but one supporter is going the extra mile to back his team.
Tinus Potgieter, an avid NWU rugby fan, is doing his bit to encourage and motivate the NWU players to perform to the best of their ability by sponsoring fuel vouchers out of his own pocket. Potgieter, who owns Caltex Moffat’s on the N12 in Potch, knows that students are a big market and saw the opportunity to get involved with Varsity Cup.
This petrol voucher is awarded to the Coach’s Man of the Match after every game. The award is external and separate from the FNB Player That Rocks award.
With all Varsity Cup players being students, there is no doubt that this act of kindness goes a long way. Catering to every student’s every need, Potgieter’s petrol station, car wash and C-Store are now equipped with student card facilities.
The NWU hooker, Louis van der Westhuizen, who was awarded Coach’s Man of the Match in the NWU versus UJ game on Monday, 19 February, says ‘I think the petrol voucher is a great idea because players get rewarded for their hard work and effort. It sometimes feels like people never really know how much work you put in and how many hours we spend in the gym and on the field preparing for Varsity Cup.
‘Receiving a voucher from someone outside of the university is, once again, a reminder that there are people out there who really support us and back us in difficult times and acknowledge our sacrifices. It also helps because we have to drive to training and gym using our own petrol, which means that, at the end of the month, you can save, even if it’s only a small amount.’
