As the son of Bert Wyness, it was unthinkable that Wang Wyness would have played for any other club.
He was a surprise choice at centre for the Springboks against the Lions in 1962, but had an excellent series, making the big tackle on Mike Weston, which set up a try for Keith Oxlee resulting in making the series safe for the Springboks.
His nickname? He inherited it at Marist Brothers’ College in Rondebosch from his brother Keith who became a Springbok angler. A retired builder Wang now lives at Onrus.
