He has 127 caps to his credit, including 19 tests. He was, of course, one of the World Cup Winning Squad in 1995, becoming a national hero overnight. He was appointed to the Gauteng Lions' captaincy from Francois Pienaar. Although a fearsome presence on the field, Kobus is a restaurateur and coffee shop owner whose greatest passions are coffee (not surprisingly) and red wine. Kobus is also a sought-after speaker - using his experiences both on the rugby field as well as in his own extremely successful business - to demonstrate how motivation and team spirit are essential to any kind of success. He is also a highly recommended bilingual Master of Ceremonies.

Kobus was born on the 16 th May 1964. He completed his schooling at Paarl Gymnasium in 1985. At this time he played Rugby for Boland and represented them 12 times. Kobus then moved to Western Transvaal and played 18 games for them before moving to Goudstad Teachers Training College in Johannesburg.

In 1988, while a student at Goudstad, he was chosen to play for Transvaal for the first time. In 1991, he played in his first of four consecutive Currie Cup Finals. In 1992 he toured Britain and Italy with Transvaal. He was in the Transvaal team that won the 1993 and 1994 Lion Cup Finals, as well as the 1993 Super Ten. Kobus scored 21 tries in 135 games for Transvaal.

Kobus received his Springbok Cap for the first time in 1993; he played for a total of 20 tests for the Boks, including the victorious 1995 World Cup Final. Kobus played 32 games for the Boks altogether.

In 1996 Kobus established Wiesenhof Coffees. While operating his first Coffee Shop in the East Rand Mall, previously part of another Franchise Group, he found that he received no support from the Franchiser. This resulted in Kobus starting to import his own coffee beans to support his business. And this led to the creation of Wiesenhof Coffees, which now has 20 stores in operation.

In between his hectic schedule, Kobus is also a Sports Presenter on M Net, which he terms to be more of a hobby. Kobus is a sought after Motivational Speaker and Master of Ceremonies and is often invited to appear at numerous corporate functions and events.

In the world of business, Kobus Wiese is a highly regarded coffee ‘baron, having pioneered the Wiesenhof chain of coffee shops. On the rugby field, he has left many an opposition player quaking in his boots. But in reality, I am assured that off, the field, he is a gentle giant!

His ability to secure line-out ball was a major asset to the Springbok team, while his talent to poach in the loose, and his sheer strength, allowed him to achieve incredible feats – often with several opponents hanging on for dear life.

With 127 caps to his credit, including 19 test and 19 tour caps, and probably the most memorable of all games, the World Cup Final itself, Kobus Wiese is one of the nation’s favourite rugby heroes.
