**RG Snyman has been ruled out for at least six months, with Munster's worst fears confirmed on Tuesday morning.** \n\nSnyman made his Munster debut against Leinster on Saturday night and instantly proved his worth by stealing a Leinster lineout in the seventh minute. \n\nBut the colossal second-rower landed awkwardly and was instantly replaced, with heavy strapping placed around his knee. \n\nSnyman underwent scans and was diagnosed with an ACL injury, keeping him out of the Guinness PRO14 run-in and the beginning of next season.\n\n“It has been confirmed that the province’s newest debutant, RG Snyman, sustained an ACL tear in the opening minutes of Saturday night’s PRO14 encounter against Leinster,” a team statement said.\n\n“The lock will meet with the specialist next to discuss surgery and management.”\n\nSnyman was not the only Munster casualty, with Jean Kleyn, Dave Kilcoyne and James Cronin also limping out of their first game back in five months. \n\nKilcoyne and Kleyn are out for the immediate future, with neither player given a timeline for their return.
