Johannesburg - Bismarck du Plessis is not likely to start when the Springboks name their side to face the Wallabies in the Castle Lager Rugby Championship match at Newlands on September 28.

According to the supersport.com website, Du Plessis, who has faced a torrid week after being incorrectly red-carded by French referee Romain Poite in Auckland last weekend, is set to be on the bench when the Boks resume their chase for the title next week.

It is likely then that Du Plessis will be back to face the All Blacks at Ellis Park a week later.

At the back, it is unlikely that there will be any other changes, with the Boks likely to opt for continuity in the backline as well.
