You should never put any faith in the Sunday papers but at this time of year we like to get some good news.
According to Rapport, Bismarck Du Plessis and Frans Steyn are among a few players that Rassie Erasmus still looking at for next years world cup.
Both players were in Erasmus group in June this year but both pulled out due to injury.
Well that was the story that we were told. The rumour has it that SA Rugby did not wanted to pay the medical insurance and for that reason they were not available.
Bismarck last played for the Springboks in the 2015 World Cup in England with Steyn last test in 2017.
Other players still likely to make the World Cup squad is Jan Serfontein, Pat Lambie and Francois Hougaard.
We will take these type of news in this silly-season with not just a pinch of salt but with the whole bottle, but at least it will be great news for these players fans.
