The lock played a key role among the ‘bomb squad’ as South Africa clinched a historic fourth world title. But it seems he picked an injury along the campaign.

Undoubtedly, the news is a big blow to the star, who only recovered in time for the 2023 Rugby World Cup. Against the World Cup, he made it known that it was something special to be part of the squad after being on the sidelines.

Speaking to Jim Hamilton after the Rugby World Cup, RG Snyman said: “I really had to do everything to get back here. To be part of this squad and team is something special in itself but to perform on the biggest stage.

“To have this [medal] around our necks tonight is such a great accomplishment for all of us,” added Snyman.
