Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe at Rugby Game April 2017

Outlander's Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe Have a BFF Date at a Rugby Game

The season three premiere of Outlander is still a few (unbearable) months away, and it looks like Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are making the most of their downtime. The co-stars and close friends attended a rugby game in Cape Town, South Africa, on April 1, which Sam documented with a fun photo. "Thank you @THESTORMERS What a result!!!!! And so good to meet '4Ball' @iamSivN @caitrionambalfe," he tweeted with the picture, which features them smiling at the camera in a sea of blue-clad fans of the Stormers. Although the picture is a simple selfie, it will no doubt send rumours of a potential romance into overdrive once again.

The two have consistently denied rumours they're anything more than friends ever since the fantasy series premiered, both from tabloids and from super-fans eager to see their favourite characters — who play husband and wife on Outlander — fall in love in real life. Sam recently told POPSUGAR that Caitriona's "extremely talented and an extremely nice person, and we have a lot of fun," but that he sees her as a member of his family, not a girlfriend. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last year, Caitriona also clarified that she and Sam are merely "best friends." Whatever their status is, we can't get enough of them.
