Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional
to play as long as the body allows, and then to make my mark in coaching
What do you like about False Bay?
The loyalty that the players, current and ex, show towards their club. It’s a testament to the club culture that has developed throughout the years
Why the Bay?
I grew up spending my Saturdays at Constantia Tennis Club, climbing the fence to watch the games. That progressed to becoming a ball boy so there was never any other club I was going to join.
What attracted you to the Bay and what keeps you here?
Best Bay rugby moment?
Scoring a hat trick on my debut at wing for the 2nd team under Kurt Botha
One day I will learn to pass left.
