Career details:

Wylie Human was another winger signed on a short-term loan deal as cover during the 2003 Rugby World Cup as Bath Rugby suffered an injury crisis that at one stage laid low twelve backs. Wylie joined from South African Currie Cup Champions the Blue Bulls had made nine Super 12 appearances in the 2003 season for the Bulls province. Born on the 26th February 1979 in his native South Africa, Human made an immediate impact on his arrival at Bath Rugby scoring a try in his first home appearance, the 42-13 Powergen Cup victory over Northampton Saints. It was a showcase for his speed with an intercept allowing him to race clear and finish with an extravagant dive in the corner. To back things up he was even the catalyst for the fifth try that day creating the opening from which Simon Danielli claimed the score. His impact was sensational, and he went on to claim a total of five tries for the club including one in the 41-7 rout of Gloucester at the Rec. in May that ensured Bath finished the regular season on top of the table. Wylie, who represented his native South Africa at Juniors and ‘A’ team level, left the club at the end of 2003/2004 to join Northampton Saints.
