Wow what can we say about this monster, unleash him on the field and he will cause destruction wherever he goes! ┬áBismarck is arguably one of the best hookers in the world at the moment. He has incredible upper body strength which enables him to act as a ball fetcher at the breakdowns as well. On top of that he has tremendous scrumming abilities too. It is unfortunate for him that he plays the same position as the sprinbok captain John Smit, which is why Bismarck will most likely play as in impact player in the upcoming world cup. But the impact he makes when he comes on is invaluable to the team’s strategy which makes him an essential part of the team. He still has a great future for the Springboks and with the retirement of John Smit after the 2011 World Cup, he will be the obvious choice as primary hooker for the Springboks!

Bismarck is also the brother of Springbok tighthead prop Jannie du Plessis.
