Kobus received his Springbok Cap for the first time in 1993; he played for a total of 20 tests for the Boks, including the victorious 1995 World Cup Final. Kobus played 32 games for the Boks altogether.
In 1996 Kobus established Wiesenhof Coffees. While operating his first Coffee Shop in the East Rand Mall, previously part of another Franchise Group, he found that he received no support from the Franchiser. This resulted in Kobus starting to import his own coffee beans to support his business. And this led to the creation of Wiesenhof Coffees, which now has 20 stores in operation.
In between his hectic schedule, Kobus is also a Sports Presenter on M Net, which he terms to be more of a hobby. Kobus is a sought after Motivational Speaker and Master of Ceremonies and is often invited to appear at numerous corporate functions and events.
