Springbok Greyling, 2 other rugby players hurt in car crash

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) -- South Africa international Dean Greyling and two other players from the Bulls team of Super Rugby have been injured in a car crash.

The Bulls said Thursday that Greyling and fellow props Hencus van Wyk and Basil Short were hurt when their vehicle overturned on the way back from a hunting trip on Wednesday.

Though not seriously hurt, all three have been withdrawn from action this weekend.

The Bulls said Greyling, who has three test caps for South Africa, hurt his knee. Van Wyk sustained "scrape wounds" and Short injured his neck in the crash near Pretoria.

Greyling and Van Wyk were due to play for the Bulls against the Lions in Super Rugby on Saturday. Short was listed to play for the affiliated Blue Bulls in a domestic game.
