Munster head coach Johann van Graan says he hopes RG Snyman will return to the playing field in October after the Springbok lock was left out of the squad for the Australia leg of the Rugby Championship.
The United Rugby Championship promises a new dawn for South African rugby. It also ramps up the need to stem the tide of players leaving these shores, writes ZELIM NEL.
The Springboks have confirmed that prop Thomas du Toit and lock RG Snyman will not be available for selection for the remainder of the Rugby Championship in Australia.
It has been confirmed that Springbok lock RG has returned to Limerick to continue his rehabilitation from a skin graft procedure and knee injury at Munster.
Lock RG Snyman will reportedly have to undergo a skin graft after sustaining burns to his knee during a “fire-pit accident” in Ireland last month.
Munster have confirmed that Damian de Allende and RG Snyman have been cleared to travel to South Africa and will continue their respective recoveries under the care of the Springboks’ medical team.
Munster assistant coach Stephen Larkham has raised doubts over whether Springbok duo Damian de Allende and RG Snyman will be ready for the upcoming British & Irish Lions series.
Damian de Allende has admitted that an explosion, which left him and RG Snyman with severe burns, had been caused by a Munster teammate throwing petrol on a fire.
The tight five is in the cross hairs as Mark Keohane and Zelim Nel meet up in ‘The War Room’ to finalise a Bok team to bash the British & Irish Lions in the series decider.
