Munster to seek compensation from South African Rugby following latest Snyman injury


Munster look set to seek financial compensation from South African Rugby following the latest long-term injury suffered by lock forward RG Snyman in the Rugby World Cup final, according to the Times.

Snyman has been laden with injury since arriving at the southern province following their 2019 Rugby World Cup win, twice having his season ended with an ACL injury to his knee.

He returned to the fold towards the end of last season, playing a key role as Munster won the United Rugby Championship before going on to play a key role for South Africa as they retained the Rugby World Cup title last month.

But a chest/shoulder problem looks set to him him sidelined once again, with surgery on the table for the giant lock, once again leaving Munster without their star signing for a chunk of the season.

Snyman’s latest injury occurred while he was with the Springboks, so Munster are claiming for compensation in accordance with World Rugby’s Regulation 9.

Reports in South Africa are also suggesting that Snyman will leave the Irish province at the end of the season with more than one of their URC franchises interested in bringing him home.
