• Bismarck suffers serious blow

    Montpellier hooker Bismarck du Plessis has been ruled out of action for up to three months after tearing a pectoral muscle.

    It's been confirmed that Du Plessis will have to undergo surgey after sustaining the injury while in action against Pau this past Saturday.

    Although Du Plessis has been overlooked by the Boks, the injury could scupper any possibility of a recall for the end-of-year tour.
