What do you like about False Bay?

The GEES, so much gees! Genuinely feels like a family and home away from home.

 

Why the Bay?

Came to play rugby with some mates ended up making a ton more and never looked back.

 

Best Bay rugby moment?

The 2014 Presidents Cup Final at Newlands with the U20s.

Every Saturday pulling a Bay jersey over my head and running onto that field with my brothers.

 

General comments:

This is truly a special club and it's something that you have to experience first hand, the gees and the brand of rugby.
