As we enter a new and exciting era at False Bay RFC, having bid farewell to Head Coach Johnno van der Walt and assistant, Ryan Williams, new man-in-charge Andrew “Gunner” Hughes shares his plans, in conversation, with us.

“I would like to thank the Committee of False Bay for giving me the opportunity to take the reins from Johnno. It is an incredible challenge for me and to continue the success of our Club.

The past months have been spent planning in terms of coaches and players for 2023 and I am happy to share the Coaching set-up for 2023.

Pieter Benade continues in his role of skills and backline coach. Sean van Rensburg steps into the shoes of Ryan Williams, his primary responsibilities being that of lineouts and defence.

Justin van Winkle will continue to oversee the breakdown within the Club and Nico van der Walt will continue with the S&C primarily assisting us with CrossFit.

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.
