Munster's RG Snyman will have to wait a bit longer for his comeback from injury after suffering a setback during the final stage of his rehabilitation.

Munster have confirmed that the South African World Cup winner will see a knee specialist this week and will undergo a minor procedure on his knee after suffering an unrelated injury.

Snyman was close to a return after suffering an ACL in his opening game for Munster against Leinster in August 2020.

However, the fresh injury will delay his return to training for a number of weeks.

The former Blue Bulls lock arrived with fellow Sprinkbok Damian de Allende last summer and has been a major loss for Munster.

It was only a couple of weeks ago when Munster forwards coach Graham Rowntree described Snyman as looking "fit, big and scary".

Munster will be back in action on Friday when they face Ulster at Thomond Park in the Guinness PRO14 Rainbow Cup.
