Our destroyer-in-chief Bismarck Wilhelm du Plessis – or just “Bissie” to the fans – celebrates his 30th birthday today.

Let’s all take a few moments to share best wishes with a true legend of Sharks rugby; Bismarck boasts the most Sharks Super Rugby caps in the current squad (114, although Jacques Botes shares that record) which is actually bloody amazing, given that he’s done it all before his 30th birthday. He has scored 14 tries at Super Rugby level for the Sharks, the most by any hooker by some distance.

While his captaincy career in admittedly in its infancy still, Bismarck has already established a proud record, boasting 9 wins in 11 games, or 81%.

Bismarck’s 57 tests for his country see him now established as the second-most-capped hooker ever (John Smit is, of course, some way ahead), with his 9 tries again the most any hooker has scored for South Africa in tests.

Happy birthday Bissie! We hope you’ve had a wonderful day in Auckland and will celebrate in style with another fantastic win over the Blues tomorrow.

Lank sal hy lewe!
