The following from News24:-
"Former Springbok hooker Bismarck du Plessis has signed a new two-year deal with French Top 14 side Montpellier.
Du Plessis, who will turn 36 on Friday, has committed his services to the club until June 2022.
Du Plessis joined the French giants in 2015 along with his brother, and fellow front-ranker, Jannie.
The pair were World Cup winners in 2007.
In 90 matches for the club, Du Plessis has scored 26 tries.
Montpellier were in eighth place in the Top 14 table when the season ended early due to the coronavirus.
Educated at Grey College, Du Plessis went on to play 131 Super Rugby matches for the Sharks and 79 Tests for the Springboks, the last of which came against Argentina in the bronze medal playoff match during the 2015 Rugby World Cup at London's Olympic Stadium."
For me Bismarck was the best Hooker we had since 1992 in the period 2007 to 2014, He started to go sour in 2014 and in the WC in 2015, Since then at Montpellier he was a regular in the staring line-up when not injured, but in the few games I saw of Montpellier over the last year he either did not pla y or was on the bench. However, Montpellier will have reasons to extend the contract for two years - but it is not clear whether he is there as a back-up or adviser iro Tight 5 play.
