Possibly the best hooker on the planet!?
Sad to see him injured, very sad.
Whish him a speedy recovery

ah kak for the boks this is the very last thing they need

@Boksmashoffice, I could not agree more. Wouldn't it be better if there was just the Currie Cup, ITM and an Aussie provincial competition, maybe mix in an Argentine provincial competition and the winners could play each other Heineken Cup style to determine a SH champion? Then there'd be less of a brutal schedule resulting in these types of injuries. I think the Top 14 is also too long and probably the main reason the French have never won a RWC.

Very disappointed for him. Can be a bit of a walking penalty at times but no doubt in my mind that he's the best hooker in world rugby. Very highly regarded here in New Zealand. All the best for your rehab Bismarck...

GoWalesGo, why would we be worrying about writing muck on Saffa articles? No need for us to prove ourselves.
Pity for Du Plessis, would prefer it to have been his brother.

A major loss for the bokke the worlds best hooker not avilable for the rest of the year..It is going to impact big time on SA as they will miss his dynaism,and hits

This is a real putty but would rather this happens now and we get to see how many other n°2s of international quality we have rather than in 2015...
BTW Ed, could you please block FISH's account, he's pissing everybody off with non-rugby related comments...

I am going to have a moan. These lads are playing too much rugby. I put his ijury down to the long seaon. The super 15 should be a super 12 comp. Maybe i am too we emotional about this and and not thinking correctly.

Sad to hear this as BDP is one of the class men in footy...
Posted 15:28 19th August 2012
This a sad - he is not only a top act on the field, but a gentleman who represents all that is good about rugby union.

This mans career seems to be cursed: four years political pine riding for Mr. John Smit's honour and now: Free sight and then this.
Get well soon and fully recover, Bizzie!
If i were religious, I'd pray for you.

@FISH, You are 16, right? And acne is a problem? And the under 15 C team dropped you just before the Cake League Final because you still can't catch a pass even it's lobbed. Now you are an online rugby expert because you think nobody sees through your crap. Think again.

I recently heard Bismarck du Plessis described as the best player in the world, and thought: "My god, that's just about right."
It's tough that South Africa, and world rugby, should have lost first JP Petersen and now Du Plessis to injury. But one would think that if anyone could surprise with the speed of his recovery, it would be Du Plessis.

Sad sad news. As a rugby fan I am sad, As a Bok fan I am devestated. Burden should be called up.
Posted 08:16 19th August 2012
What are you trying to prove? You've written that in every Bok article. Are u a Kiwi?
Posted 07:53 19th August 2012
Terrible news for SA! I like many Kiwi's have utter respect(awe) for the way this guy plays rugby..To me he epitomizes SA rugby..he's a FREAK..Powerful & technically sound on all facets scrum/defense/line out/attack. A beast on the paddock and a gentleman off the field. We will be deprived of one of the draw cards of super rugby.Best luck on the REHAB BRO
Posted 02:20 19th August 2012
ah well, that is sad. His 'Mr. Furious' runs are a great sigjt in Int'l rugby.
Posted 21:46 18th August 2012
No Chilliboy either. Now we can see just how far down the depth chart Schalk Brits is.
Posted 20:13 18th August 2012
the s.a front row is weak, jannie is old and gives away too many penalties and beast is not as brutal as he used to be, and now bismarck, its over the dream is over the no.1 hooker is done so sad so damn sad
