What is there not to like lol? The people, it's a beautiful rugby environment and my team mates- what a bunch of okes to be surrounded by.

 

Why the Bay?

 Back in 2014, whilst at Collegians, 2 of my friends had watched a few games of the Bay, then suggested that I join the Bay for the following season. So i got in contact with them, checked it out, loved it. and still enjoying my rugby here..

 

What attracted you to the Bay and what keeps you here?

 The diverse cultures, and the Brand of rugby as a whole, the togetherness, the Gees, the environment, it's healthy lol
