Snyman faces a hard road to recovery… once more.

Snyman just lasted nine minutes, and he hasn't played much in the last year since damaging knee ligaments in August.

RG Snyman, the Springbok, just can’t seem to get a break. The big Bok lock has suffered setback after setback, and now faces yet another extended layoff after “re-rupturing” his cruciate ligament in Sunday’s Vodacom United Rugby Championship triumph over the Scarlets.
Snyman just lasted nine minutes, and he hasn’t played much in the last year since damaging knee ligaments in August.

He only lasted seven minutes in his Munster debut before sustaining the knee injury, and he was set to return before the British and Irish Lions tour when he was left with burn wounds that necessitated a skin graft due to a weird campfire incident that remains a mystery.

He returned a few weeks ago, coming on as a substitute against the Sharks and scoring a try a week later against the Stormers.

However, he now faces a lengthy road to recovery as he attempts to overcome yet another setback.

According to his club, the World Cup-winning Springbok will meet with the doctor next to discuss surgery and management.

Johann van Graan, RG’s coach at Munster, remarked following the announcement, “We are all tremendously disappointed for RG.”

“Everyone aches for him right now after he did everything that was expected of him and worked so hard to come back into terrific shape.”

“While this is a setback, given everything RG has been through in the previous year, we know he is young and tough, so there is a strong sense of perspective here.”

“We’ve seen what previous world-class players have done in this position before, and they’ve returned to achieve the pinnacle of their careers, and I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone of RG’s caliber and stature.”

Cruciate ligament injuries, such as Snyman’s, can take anywhere from six to nine months to recover from
