Elected: September 2019


My name is Hannes Bavius and I am the current Development Officer. I got my first taste of League back in 2014 when it was still in an early development fase, with no domestic season and just a couple of friendlies a year. It is amazing to see how far it has come now with a domestic competition consisting of 5 clubs. I got my first cap for the National team in 2015 when we took on the Belgium national team in Brussel, and am lucky to have played two more international games against Sweden. I have been a part of Rotterdam Pitbulls since the founding of the club. To further develop the game I also co-founded the Dordrecht Griffins which hopefully partake in the 2022 domestic competition. It is my mission to further spread the rugby league gospel on a senior and junior level and further professionalise the sport.
