Joel Stransky hospitalised after cycling crash in Cape Epic Cycle Race

Former Springbok flyhalf Joel Stransky, known for slotting the drop goal which broke the hearts of All Blacks fans at the 1995 World Cup, was left bloodied after falling in a cycling accident in South Africa.

Riding in the 2017 Absa Cape Epic, Stransky crashed out of the event when he went down in Sunday's 26km Prologue stage at Meerendal Wine Estate.

The 49-year-old was left with a bloodied face and was taken to hospital with a broken rib and punctured lung.

6 Nations Rugby Pays Tribute To South Africa’s Joost Van Der Westhuizen In Europe

A minute’s silence (and/or applause) is being held in honour of Joost van der Westhuizen, who passed away on Monday, at each of the Six Nations matches this weekend.

Six Nations organisers posted a photo Saturday afternoon to Twitter of the minute’s silence before the Ireland vs Italy match in Rome.

The message said: “A rugby legend. The great Joost van der Westhuizen will be remembered at all our matches this weekend.”

Later today in Wales, South Africans described the incredible atmosphere as a minute’s silence was held before the England vs Wales match.

Both teams and spectators stood for Joost… as they played a video clip of the former World Cup Springbok scrum-half on the large screen.

France and Scotland will pay their respects at Stade de France in Paris.

Joost died on Monday after a six-year battle with Motor Neurone Disease. He was just 45.

The Six Nations tournament comprises England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

Stadio Olimpico, Italy – the crowds and players applaud Joost van der Westhuizen
