Wesley Wyndham Cloete (born 8 February 1990) is a South African rugby union player.[1] His regular position is prop.



He went to school at Selborne College in East London and played for the Border Bulldogs at the 2008 Craven Week tournament and later represented them in the 2011 Under-21 Provincial Championship competition. He played in five of their matches in that competition, which saw the team win the Division B final and the promotion play-off which saw them promoted to Division A.

Border Bulldogs

His senior debut for the Border Bulldogs senior side came in the 2012 Currie Cup First Division season, when he started as the tighthead prop in the team's 11–33 defeat to the Falcons,[2] before quickly establishing himself as a first team regular during the 2012 Currie Cup First Division and 2013 Vodacom Cup seasons.


In 2014, Cloete moved to Gauteng, where he made five appearances in the 2014 Vodacom Cup competition for the Falcons. He also played some club rugby for UP Tuks in the Carlton League.[3]


He then started training with Kimberley-based side Griquas during their 2014 Currie Cup Premier Division campaign.[4] He was named on the bench for their final match of the season against the Blue Bulls in Pretoria and made a single appearance for Griquas.[5]
