Sad news.;Munster provide worrying injury update on Springboks lock RG Snyman

Lock RG Snyman looks set to miss the majority of Munster’s season after undergoing surgery on an injury following South Africa’s Rugby World Cup triumph.

The second-row played a key role in the Springboks lifting the Webb Ellis Cup for a fourth time when they beat the All Blacks 12-11 in the final.

However, Snyman sustained a shoulder/chest injury in that contest which needed to be corrected via surgery.

Out for months

This implies that his absence will last months instead of weeks, however he will probably make a comeback for their final game of the season.

At this point, March is telling me. Graham Rowntree, head coach of Munster, stated, “It’s not a small operation he has had and he’s not a small human.”

“We’ll watch his development. The following month or two and a half will reveal a great deal to us. However, I’m ready for the worst-case situation.

Snyman and Munster have suffered a great loss, despite the province’s amazing efforts to sustain the lock despite a few critical ailments.

Before making his comeback in March 2023, he had only played four times in less than three years due to two ACL ruptures.

Snyman recovered for last season’s run-in and played a key role in the Irish side’s United Rugby Championship title triumph before he tasted success with the Springboks at the World Cup.

Other injury worries

The South African is not the only Munster player to be on the sidelines with Ireland star Peter O’Mahony also

tending to a shoulder problem.

Another player out of action right now is Jack O’Donoghue, but Rowntree says the outlook for that back-row combination is far better.

Yes, it will take weeks rather than months. This side of Christmas, I hope to get them participating in a European competition. We’re simply awaiting a report on that. Pete had another expert look at it [Monday] night and another scan,” he stated.

Jack escaped punishment for it. There’s an awful clearing out [during the Stormers game]. You can see how his knee has held up and the look from behind. Though it’s not too serious, his ankle ended up bearing the brunt of it. He managed to get away with it.
