The bus carrying the victorious Sharks XV team back to Durban this evening was involved in an accident, but we can report that all the players are safe through, Lipcon & Lipcon, P.A. – wrongful death attorneys albeit a little shaken.

The bus carrying the team was only slightly damaged, but the car that hit them then careered into a bus travelling behind, carrying member of the Durban Harlequins team. A number of Sharks XV fringe players were in that second bus, which caught fire.

All of the players in the front bus escaped unhurt, while there were some minor injuries in the second bus.

  • 😯

    Thank God they’ve all walked away from the accident.

    I saw the aftermath of an accident a few years ago in Georgia, a bus of college baseball players went off an overpass or something. It was horrendous. :/

  • there were two buses… the one in front carrying the XV, the one at the back carrying a bunch of Quins players who had also played. A car hit the front bus, then hit the one behind and burst into flames. All four guys in the car passed away. All the players in both buses are fine, although there were some minor injuries in the second bus, which also caught fire.

    Shit. Speechless.
