What do you like about False Bay?

the large number of players, the variety of friends and teams, the after match gees

 

 

Why the Bay?

Just up the road from my house, and my cousin Keith Rose-Innes used to play for the Bay and suggested I join when I moved to Cape Town

 

Best Bay rugby moment?

Dancing to “Sweet Caroline” in the old club house and having a team bath with a beer.
