We've featured some wonderful prop tries over the years, and this effort from Dean Greyling during the Bulls' 32-30 defeat of the Crusaders is another must-see. A few other great ones have been added to the related posts down below too.
The Bulls held off a late fight-back from the Crusaders, who trailed 32-16 with ten minutes left but managed to get within two points thanks to late tries by Zac Guildford and Tom Marshall.
"They showed what a quality team they are. Luckily we held out," said Bulls captain Pierre Spies.
The Crusaders now have three wins and three losses, while the Bulls picked up their fourth win and keep the pressure on the Stormers, who lead the South African conference.
One of the tries of the game was this lovely effort from 120kg prop Dean Greyling, who was up in support then threw an audacious dummy on Israel Dagg before sprinting to the tryline, and of course finishing with a big dive.
"I am sure Dean will remind us of that try at every possible occasion next week," Spies said.
"He will certainly talk about that try for a long time, but why not. It certainly was a brilliant effort and it proved to be a turning point in the match. Individual moments of brilliance often change matches and his did lift the team and put us on track to victory," he added.
