False Bay RFC during Graham "Snoopy" Knoop's captaincy adopted an initiative wherein they recognised those that went before and that all current players were merely "Custodians of the Jersey". This story embodies that, with the past, the present and the future each playing a role.
On a two-night, two-course golf trip to Langebaan which included the legendary champion of Southern Suburbs Club Rugby, Dennis Nick, False Bay President "Doc" Gareth Jones, former Bay Chairman, club "vertebrae" Mike Punt and former Bay players Brent Jordaan and Andrew Knight among others, this feelgood story takes root.
Jordaan took honours and ownership of the R6000 winners pool and immediately handed it to Nick, a benevolent supporter of rugby causes, for distribution to a worthy rugby recipient. Taking his time in careful consideration of where to apply the money, Dennis settled on supporting, through FBRFC, Brad Bing, an Honourary Vice-President of False Bay, Founder and MD of Sporting Chance and their project at Constantia Primary School, literally up the road from the Bay.

PRE-SEASON IN FULL SWING
CONSTANTIA PRIMARY SCHOOL
The second month of the year is already upon us, time truly standing still for no one, rather appearing to pick up pace for all. Rugby clubs across the Peninsula are past the fitness training stage and are into contact sessions and on the verge of cropping their training groups to squad size.
At False Bay RFC, back in Constantia after a few weeks at Wynberg Military Base while their fields were being rehabilitated, Head Coach Gunner Hughes is no different to his counterparts in the Super League A.
Yet it is not all about the Men. The Bay Women’s team under Zoe Naude and assistant coach Ryan Henry, have been hard at work preparing for their upcoming season. Runners-up in last year’s inaugural Women’s Rugby league, practices have been attended by no less than forty players per season, with a fair sprinkling of new faces amongst the many players of 2022.
