What do you like about False Bay?
There is an awesome family vibe around the club, you always feel at home here. The gees never ends, not even when Vinny leaves it at the gate!
Why The Bay?
My best mates, Jake, Adam and Cam came to play here last year and I followed suit, After my first training I didn’t want to play anywhere else.
Best Bay rugby moment?
Every time I run on the field with my False Bay brothers and beating Maties and Vics with bonus points this year.
