Leinster table colossal offer for RG Snyman to join them when Munster contract expires

Big bucks.

The rugby world was shocked last week when it emerged that RG Snyman looks set to swap Munster for inter-provincial rivals Leinster when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Munster announced last month that they would not be renewing Snyman’s contract after an injury-laded few years with the southern province, who opted to retain the services of another World Cup winner in Jean Kleyn, who has been a stalwart for the club since signing way back in 2016.

Bath seemed close to agreeing a deal with Snyman, with the Stormers also believed to be in the hunt. But now it appears Leinster’s offer for the monstrous second-row will be enough to get a deal over the line.

According to RugbyPass, Leinster are willing to pay Snyman a staggering € 500,000 a season to make the move up the road in a deal that would make him one of their highest-paid players.

No doubt, a deal too good to turn down. But will it be money well spent given his injury history?
