Wiese is one of six nominees alongside Dave Ewers, Steven Luatua, Piers O'Conor, Marcus Smith and Sam Simmonds. 

The 25-year-old made his Premiership debut in the opening round of the 2020/21 season at Mattioli Woods Welford Road against Gloucester, going on to make 15 league appearances and score three tries.

Wiese was nominated for April and May's Premiership Player of the Month awards and received the fan-vote to be crowned Newcomer of the Year at the Leicester Tigers Supporters' Awards, before capping off his first season at Leicester Tigers with selection in the South Africa squad for the upcoming Test series between the Springboks and British & Irish Lions.
