The moniker "legend" is too easily bandied about nowadays, reducing that honour to a flippant compliment when used to describe a truly deserving legend. One such recipient is Charlie Koster, who passed away on last week after a long battle with cancer.
A natural sportsman with a zest for life, a deep compassion for his fellow beings and a positive attitude seldom equaled, Koster's trademark smile disarmed and relaxed people, opening the door to a true gentleman and humanitarian. He left his mark wherever he went, and it was always kindness, compassion and genuine interest in his fellow man.
Koster joined False Bay RFC in 1988, at a time when most young players chose other clubs as an option. His dedication and passion to the club burned brightly until the very end. He re[resented the Bay's First XV at flyhalf as first choice for a few seasons and when his competitive days had passed, he became a stalwart of the Club's highly successful Jocks team, which experienced a highly successful run in the later '90s.
