After losing to NWU-Pukke and Shimlas, UJ put their season on track with five wins in a row to finish in third place on the final standings.
They will now play the second-placed Maties team in Stellenbosch on Monday for a spot in the final.
Reflecting on their progress, Snyman said it was a strong spirit in their team that contributed towards the path to success.
The 23-year-old hooker said they knew they would have to reassess their situation after the opening losses.
“To do that, we needed to come together and start playing as a team,” said Snyman. “Those losses weren’t great, but they helped the team to fight together.”
Having overcome that start to reach the last four, Snyman believes anything is possible.
Although they are up against a strong Maties team, who defeated them in the final league game this week, the skipper felt their attitude could make the difference.
“When you lose two games to come back and qualify for the semifinals, it really makes you feel that you can achieve anything you set your mind to.”
Snyman, a final year logistics management student, said he had really enjoyed the season with UJ but was looking to end on a high note.
“We need to remain focused as I would really like to reach the final for the first time with UJ and hopefully have some great memories which I’ll be able to look back on.”
UP-Tuks will play Shimlas in the other semifinal on Monday.
