False Bay players and coaching staff testimonials acknowledge the benefits of training with False Bay Crossfit
After a 2019 season which can most certainly be regarded as a success, False Bay have pulled off something of a coup in the appointment of Ashley Wells and Richard Lawson as coaches for the Under 20 section. They will be strongly supported by manager Harold Kesler, an experienced administrator and team man whose strong presence adds to the smooth-running of a squad and the general club experience of the players.
In a league dominated by Stellenbosch and UCT Universities, False Bay ended a credible fifth on the table last season, the foundation for continued success.
FBRFC U20'S LOOK TO BUILD ON LAST SEASON
THE GOLDEN YEARS
The 2014 season reiterated that False Bay could compete in the Super League A. They had done so under Kevin Musikanth with third and seventh position finishes in their two-year visit back to the top and under a fresh, albeit unproven coaching panel, they delivered an impressive fourth place finish.
Both the player group and the coaching staff recognized that a different approach was needed, that the “same-old” would not suffice. Michael Poppmeier was appointed as First XN captain and was supported by an exceptionally strong and experienced senior player group which included Justin van Winkel, Vlam van Vuuren, Marc Davids, Ryan “Vleis” Olivier, Ridhaa Damon, Danie Roux, Graham Knoop, Franky Charlie and Andrew Whittaker, amongst others.
The Bay were determined to improve on this, not only in terms of the First XV but with regards their other teams, equally important in the Club dynamic.
In his piece already posted (https://www.falsebayrugby.com/the-poppmeier-era), Popps touches on the change in approach to fitness and team spirit, while van der Walt and his panel prepared the playing force for the season ahead.
