Second-row forward Marco Wentzel arrived at Leicester from Italian club Benetton Treviso in the summer of 2007, made his debut on the opening day of the season in the victory at Bristol and was an almost ever-present in the first half of the Guinness Premiership season. He suffered an ankle injury in the league win at Gloucester but returned in time to return to Kingsholm in the play-offs and ended his first season in England with an appearance in the Guinness Premiership Final at Twickenham.

Marco played Currie Cup rugby with Boland Cavaliers and gained Super 12 experience with the Blue Bulls and the Cats, winning Test caps with South Africa against Scotland and France during 2002. He also spent three seasons in Italy, gaining Heineken Cup experience in each season.
