Nightmare for RG Snyman as it's confirmed he's re-ruptured his knee

Munster and Springbok second row RG Snyman re-injured his knee against Scarlets in the United Rugby Championship this past weekend.

The 26-year-old World Cup winner featured off the bench in Parc y Scarlets and nine minutes later was forced off after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

He originally injured his knee in August 2020 when he limped off just 7 minutes into his debut.

The incident occurred in a fairly innocuous fashion as he collected a high restart after a try. He appeared to come down on both feet but the knee gave away or twisted somehow.

Just a week back he scored his first try for the province in fairly spectacular fashion.

He will meet with the specialist next to discuss surgery and management.

Commenting on the injury blow, Head Coach Johann van Graan said, “We are all hugely disappointed for RG.

“After doing everything that was asked of him and working so hard to get back into great shape everyone feels for him right now.”

“While this is a setback, we know RG is young and resilient given everything he has gone through in the last year so there is a strong sense of perspective here.

“We have seen what other world class players have done in this position before and they have come back to reach the successful heights of their careers and I would expect no different for someone of RG’s class and standing.”

Munster went on to win the match 43-13.
