It has been confirmed that Munster’s newest debutant, RG Snyman, sustained an ACL tear in the opening minutes of Saturday night’s Guinness PRO14 encounter against Leinster.
The lock will meet with the specialist next to discuss surgery and management.
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.
RG Snyman, Dave Kilcoyne and Jean Kleyn were all withdrawn due to injury during Saturday night’s game against Leinster with James Cronin pulling out of the starting XV before kick-off.
Cronin suffered a low-grade groin strain last weekend and will continue to rehab with the medical team.
Jack O’Donoghue suffered a concussion in training last week and will follow the graded return to play pathway, under the supervision of the medical team.
In positive news, Mike Haley (calf) will return to team training this week.
Continuing to rehab: Joey Carbery (ankle), Dan Goggin (ankle) and Roman Salanoa (abdominal).
