Munster Confirm Devastating RG Snyman News

Sidelined.

Munster have confirmed that RG Snyman sustained an ACL tear in the opening minutes of Saturday night’s Guinness PRO14 encounter against Leinster following a scan.

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

The injury will likely keep him out of action for quite some time in a huge blow for the province.

Dave Kilcoyne and Jean Kleyn have also been ruled out for the immediate future with both players requiring rehabilitation periods for respective ankle and neck ligament injuries.

The squad gathered at the HPC this morning to commence preparations for the Round 15 Guinness PRO14 encounter against Connacht, with players and coaches taking part in the next phase of the IRFU’s routine PCR testing.
