RG Snyman man his long awaited Munster return in a 49-42 URC victory over the Scarlets last night, at a sold-out Musgrave Park.

Snyman had not played since October 2021, after re-rupturing his ACL in only his third game back after tearing his ACL in his Munster debut in 2020.

The mammoth South African lock has paid back the faith of Munster rugby by showing incredible strength of character to return from two massive injury setbacks.

The Munster fans responded in kind when he was brought on in the 63rd minute, giving him a standing ovation as he entered the game.

The match itself was a thriller as the Scarlets launched a mad second-half comeback after being down 35-7 at half-time.

Munster finished the game with seven tries in total, with scores from Shane Daly x2, Calvin Nash x2, Patrick Campbell, Paddy Patterson, and Gavin Coombes.

The night was also bittersweet for the province as they paid tribute to former Munster player and academy coach Tom Tierney, and Munster hall of fame member Brian O'Brien.

“He had the ability to light up a room when he came in,” Munster defence coach Denis Leamy said of Tierney.


“He forged an incredible relationship with the young players he was dealing with. He was hugely passionate about them.

"He was hugely passionate about Munster rugby and I suppose the values he was instilling in those young men, we were starting to see on the training pitch and in the building.

“It’s a great pity, it really is… It’s unbelievable, really.

“Tom is being buried on Thursday and we’ll be out in force.

It’s incredibly important for us to be there. He’s part of our history, he added so much to the Munster jersey as a player and in this building as a coach.

“We’ll be out in force."
