Yet another tough customer from Johannesburg’s East Rand, Wiehan Hay represented the Valke at both the U16 Grant Khomo Week and U18 Craven Week, before signing with the Blue Bulls. An U19 Currie Cup campaign in Pretoria was followed by a move to Durban, where he became a regular starter in the Sharks U21 Currie Cup squad. A senior call-up followed in the 2013 Vodacom Cup, before Hay made his Sharks Currie Cup Premier Division debut in the following year.
2015 saw Wiehan move to an ambitious Mpumalanga Pumas team, before bringing his considerable frame to the SWD Eagles. Hay found a new lease on life at SWD, bringing intense physicality to a young group and helping them lift the 2018 Currie Cup 1st Division trophy. His ability to offer his front row a ‘second shove’ from lock drew critical acclaim in France, and it came as no surprise when the man who is known to boss the collision eventually signed with US Cognaçaise in Fédérale 1. Regularly drawing the attention of two defenders, he creates the gaps in which his outside backs can thrive.
