What do you like about False Bay? 

The gees is on top form.... that's for sure. The quality of rugby played at the Bay, especially with snoopy shouting behind you "HIT HIM!!". Those awesome crossfit sessions to clear the head and loosen some tight bolts in the legs and arms after a awesome weekend. 

 

Best Bay rugby moment?

Starting a Tighthead for the False Bay 1st team against Durbell in the final preseason friendly. What an awesome experience.
