What do you like about False Bay? 

Its clichè but its like a big family at the Bay, everyone is always made to feel welcome, from the 1st XV captain to the young kids in the academy that always run around and there's just a great culture at the club. Also knobs don't last long at the Bay, so most of the guys you play with are good okes.
