Prop Dean Greyling's great dummy and try against the Crusaders

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.

Love watching forwards doing such unexpected moves, Richie Gray's similarly audacious dummy against Kearny in the Six Nations springs to mind.

As a fullback myself I think getting dummied by a prop is my worst nightmare :D

Not to be picky, but shouldn't that be a penalty from the restart? I know it would be a harsh penalty, but a tackle off the ball is still a tackle off the ball, accidental or not and it would be deserving of the props skill and his the opposition got to make a pretty decent hit on his teammate from behind and quite high up (not a particularly pleasant way to be tackled).

Surely, since the incident occurred before the try was scored, if the referee were to penalize the tackle then advantage can't be played and the score would be wiped.

There's a few other old ones too, but the list was getting a bit long!
Glad you found it anyway :)

It was about the only thing worth remembering from Springbok rugby back then.

Never been a better prop try.

In all honesty, he does well selling the dummy, but really had no alternatives given the defensive numbers in the inside - hence the supporting player being plummelled without the ball.
He would have kept the ball regardless of the 15 buying the dummy or not. Really number 15 is at fault big time.
