Spotlight - Meryck Ward
Name: Meryck Ward
50, given to me by Marc Davids, because no matter how many times coaches told me not to throw a 50/50 pass it would happen.
Family background/ recognition:
My Father played soccer all his life, he did attempt to play rugby a few times but ended that very shortly and chose soccer. None of my other family members are very much into playing rugby, that’s why I chose it to be different.
Anywhere were I don’t get the ball
Clubs played for:
The only club anyone needs to play for, False Bay
False Bay 1st Team (100+ caps)
Other interests outside of rugby:
Who has other interests besides rugby, chilling with friends talking about sports is always a good option as well.
Conrad Smith, rugby is not only about smashing and head banging, but also some intelligence
When in doubt throw the 50/50
Respect is not demanded but earned
Enjoy it while it lasts
What do you like about False Bay?
If there is one thing that I could like about False Bay, it’s that no matter where I am in the world whenever the song ‘Sweet Caroline’ plays I will always sing “FALSE BAY BOYS”
'ludus causa ludi' - the game for the sake of the game
