Springbok’s former lock Kobus Wiese suffers from heart attack
Former Springbok Lock and popular TV host Kobus Wiese is in hospital recovering from a serious heart attack, according to a radio report this morning.
Sports radio host John Walland of HOT 91.9FM in Johannesburg said Wiese, 56, was rushed to Panorama Clinic in Cape Town and was being closely monitored. The enormous Wiese played 18 tries for the Boks in the 1990s and was a key member of the 1995 World Cup winning team.
The ancient pillar of the Transvaal, 2m high, weighed 125kg at its peak and went on to grow into a giant man. After retiring from rugby in 1997 after 128 games for his beloved Transvaal, Wiese has been a popular host of SuperSport on their rugby shows and on match days.
The 1995 World Cup team was in the throes of tragedy. Flanker Ruben Kruger died in 2010 after a long struggle with a brain tumor; scrum-half Joost van der Westhuizen died of motor neuron disease in 2017; James Small, right, died two years ago from a heart attack; and Chester Williams, the left winger in the All Blacks World Cup final loss, also died of a heart attack in 2019, just two months after Small’s death.
Wiese was a belligerent lock who took no prisoners at large and was a reliable No.2 rider for the Boks and the Transvaal team who won the Super 10 in 1993 and the Currie Cup in 1993 and 1994.
