Nick Wegner : Hamilton SP RFC History

Full name: George Nicolaas Wegner

Born: Nelspruit, 3 December 1968

Clubs: Stellenbosch, CA Villeneuve sur Lot, Parma, Hamiltons

Provinces: Western Province, Natal

International career: 1993: 4 tests

Tall and springy, Nico Wegner, who came to Stellenbosch from Nelspruit High School, seemed likely to solve South Africa’s line-out problems in a world which, then, forbade lifting in the line-out. Strangely for a man who played in four tests he struggled to get into provincial teams, except for Western Province in 1996.
