Lock Wiese won the Super 10 with Transvaal in 1993 before making his Springboks bow later the same year but he would have to wait two years to cement his place in the stsrting line-up. Currie Cup success with the Lions laid the foundation for his international return and he would be a pivotal member of the side that clinched the sport's biggest crown in 1995.

He also memorably knocked out Wales lock Derwyn Jones with a punch during a clash in 1995 for which he eventually served a three-match ban. Since hanging up his boots he has launched a successful coffee house company and worked for broadcaster M-Net.
