Cape Town - As the Springboks plot a new era after Rugby World Cup 2015, there are a couple of uncertainties. 

One of those is Schalk Burger.

The 32-year-old stalwart had been tipped as one of a few Boks likely to play his last Test at the tournament, but that might not be the case.

"I feel I've got enough energy and enough passion and there are things around me that say I can play one more game," explained the flank, who overcame a life-threatening attack of viral meningitis two years ago.

"I've been privileged that I've had an extended run in the Springboks jersey in this World Cup," Burger added.

"At the moment, I just want to sit back with my best mates around me and drink a few beers and decide what happens in the future."
