Hooker

Weight

Age

Bismarck du Plessis is widely regarded as one of the best hookers in world rugby, with his skills in the loose and power in the scrum making him the complete package in the number two shirt. He has had to endure a tough wrestle with captain John Smit for a starting berth, however, and is consequently often used as an impact player. He made his debut in 2007 against Australia, a historic occasion as his brother Janie also made his Springbok debut in the match. He now has over 35 caps and going into the RWC had scored five tries. He made five appearances at the 2007 tournament.
