Spotlight - Lee Muller
Name: Lee Muller
Plumstead High School
Rugby or sporting background:
Played Rugby all through junior and high school and then sat on the couch till the age of 24 when I was introduced to the Bay by Mike Chowles.
Clubs played for:
only ever played rugby at Bay.
Position played or role if never played:
I've always played front row even though my inner self always believed I was a Centre.
Geez I was never a talented rugby player but my philosophy since my involvement at the Bay has been to try and contribute positively no matter how small.
You first need to survive before you can prosper.
Rugby highlight as a player:
Actually getting to meet Van in person on the field of play when I got my 1st cap for the 1's on the B Field vs Primrose. I remember it clearly and often read my journal entry for that day (Love you Van).
Rugby highlight in your role:
Winning promotion from SLB was pretty special but to be honest just being involved is a weekly highlight for me.
Favourite Club Player:
Tough question because there are some special head cases out there - Van,Vlam,TB,Snoops,Annas,RD but my fav would be Vleis. I remember watching him play his 1st game for the 1's as an under 20. A pretty unassuming guy with all the talent in the world.
Mine @ Bay - Kallie Pretorius, there was something about his goodbyes that I'll never forget.
@ club overall has to be The VD Show - I've never seen a more prepared coach who is such a proper rugger bugger.
How do you chill?
I take time out with my boy (usually at the Bay hahahah).
What are your aspirations for the Bay?
I'm a pretty superstitious guy when it comes to questions like this so I'll just say :- That it's success on the field Mirrors the effort off the field by all involved.
What is it about the Bay that inspires you?
Belief - in itself, it's people and society as a whole. We don't live in bubbles. We live in real times, often tough times but we should always believe.
Who at False Bay inspires you?
I take inspiration from many in different ways but if I had to pick one it would be Kevin Lennet.
What do you do to relax or what are your interests outside of rugby?
Outside of rugby I try spend time with my 5 year old son and traveling when I can.
