What do you like about the Bay?

The camaraderie and the gees really stand out. It runs from the senior members of the club through to the U20's, and everyone is made to feel welcome, which I haven't experienced elsewhere. 

 

Rugby goals:

To finish this season unbeaten with the 3rds would be awesome. 

 

What attracted you to the Bay and what keeps you here?

A lot of Wynberg Boys came here to play U20's in 2013. What keeps me here is the gees, the fines and the quality people at the Bay. 

 

Best Bay rugby moment?

Winning the u20 B-league in 2013 and beating Vics and UCT away from home this year were pretty special.
