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 costars and close friends attended a rugby match 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 rumors of a potential romance into overdrive once again.
The two have consistently denied rumors they're anything more than friends ever since the fantasy series premiered, both from tabloids and from superfans eager to see their favorite 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.
