The incredible RG Snyman stat that will baffle even Munster fans


RG Snyman hasn’t had the best of luck with injuries since joining Munster – and that’s putting it lightly.

The towering Springboks lock has suffered two season-ending knee injuries among several other niggles since making his debut for the southern province nearly four years ago.

He has returned to action in the last few weeks, playing a key role in Munster’s recent turn in form, and should he start against Connacht this weekend, it will be the first time he has started a game at Thomond Park since signing for the Irish side.

Speaking ahead of the game, Snyman says it seems luck is reserved solely for the Irish

“It’s obviously not ideal but I think I’ve learned the luck of the Irish is reserved for the Irish,” Snyman said.

“Listen, it’s not been easy but I’m certainly enjoying the time I do get and the opportunities I get to be out there with the guys.”

As for this weekend’s game, Snyman is excited to finally get a chance to start a game in the famous arena.

“Yeah, my road here and my time here hasn’t been the easiest but I’ve been as dedicated as I could have been throughout my entire time,” he added.

It’s almost as if all of the opportunities I ended up not having gets thrown into this last bit of the season and into the opportunities I do get.

“So it is certainly exciting for me to be in Thomond Park.”

“I definitely am enjoying it. It’s brilliant to be out there again, especially after everything I’ve been through but the thing is, I’ve always enjoyed my rugby and that was always the biggest driving force behind me playing.”
