What do you like about False Bay?

Just the camaraderie  and the banter between the boys is something so special, that in my opinion no club can match! Very humble arena


Why the Bay?

Initially was close to home, but now because I love going out onto a Saturday pitch with a band of brothers and smashing the opposition.


Best Bay rugby moment:

Beating Vics at Danie Craven Stadium 9-8
