A RUGBY World Cup winner has visited a popular Northwich restaurant.

Springboks star Jasper Wiese is the latest famous face to pay a visit to That South African Place at Barons Quay,

The flanker was joined by his brother, Sale Sharks’ Cobus Wiese, and their wives on Sunday (December 17) as they enjoyed the venue’s Sunday Service, featuring a live gospel choir and a roast dinner.

Owner Rayner Muller said: “It was great to welcome a Springbok and he signed our wall alongside other rugby legends.

“Again this is fantastic for us as we are being noticed by big players and especially for Northwich to have big names come in and show their support is unreal!”

Wiese’s visit comes just days after it was confirmed he would leave Leicester Tigers at the end of the season.

Considered one of the most destructive ball carriers in the Gallagher Premiership, he is expected to join Stade Français in a move that will end his four-year spell in the East Midlands.

The 28-year-old was a replacement in South Africa's World Cup final victory over New Zealand in October and was man of the match when Leicester toppled Saracens in the 2022 Gallagher Premiership final.

“I’ve loved every minute of my time at the club and will continue to give my all for my team and my team-mates,” Wiese said.

“This is a special place for me and my family and we have a lot more memories to create this season.”

Earlier this year, Sale Sharks duo Alex Groves and Ernst van Rhyn visited That South African Place, also known as Culinary Concept.

The pair joined Rayner and his wife Lynika to watch South Africa’s opening world cup match, an 18-3 win over Scotland.

That South African Place was in full rugby mode for the duration of the tournament, with a giant mural of Springboks captain Siya Kolisi adorning the front window.

They also became the first venue in the UK to sell ‘Bomb Squad Lager Draught’, a drink created by the South Africa forwards replacements.
