Trio stood down from action


The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd on Thursday confirmed that three players, Dean Greyling, Basil Short and Hencus van Wyk, were withdrawn from this weekend's matches for the Vodacom Bulls and Vodacom Blue Bulls after suffering minor injuries in a car crash on Wednesday.


Greyling (knee) and Van Wyk (scrape wounds) were due to play for the Vodacom Bulls against the Emirates Lions and Short (neck) for the Vodacom Blue Bulls against the Limpopo Blue Bulls on Saturday.


They will be replaced by Morne Mellett, Dayan van der Westhuizen and Nqoba Mxoli respectively.


According to Xander Janse van Rensburg, High Performance Manager of the BBC, the trio were returning home from a quick hunting trip just outside Pretoria when their vehicle overturned.


"We are grateful that they did not sustain any serious injuries. Dean injured his knee, Hencus suffered some burns and Basil injured his neck, which resulted in him spending the night in hospital for observation. We wish them a speedy recovery."


Greyling and Van Wyk is still due to travel with the Bulls on their overseas leg of the Vodacom Super Rugby competition, departing Sunday.

    Honibal jy moet dalk minder kommentaar lewer oor dinge wat jy niks weet nie. Dit wat hulle in hul aftyd doen het niks met jou uit te waai nie. Hulle kon ernstiger beserings opgedoen het. Glo nie jy is n ouer nie want dan sou jy nie sulke snert kwyt geraak het nie. Kom by in die lewe die wereld kan doen sonder morone soos jy.

    Ja nee Bullsfan. Ek stem dat die manne in hul aftyd kan doen wat hul wil. Die manne moet ook lewe en ontspanning is deel van die lewe. Miskien het Honibal dit tong in die kies gese. Ek hoop maar sotersy

    I just want to wish the injured and especially Dean Greyling a speedy recovery and quick return to the Bulls team.
