Durban - A 26-year-old Brumbies rugby player is in a critical condition after being hit by a car in Durban on Sunday morning.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said the man was knocked down while leaving the Clapham Grand night club in Morningside with fellow team mates at 04:15.

"When paramedics arrived on the scene, they found him lying on the side on the road... he had suffered massive injuries and had to have advanced life support intervention," Banks said.

He was taken to St Augustine's Hospital. The man's name was being withheld until his team made a formal announcement.
