RG Snyman expected to sign for quins
« on: Thursday 25-Apr-2019, 10:00* »
Owen Slott reports it in todays Times.

"..The next Springbok likely to join the exodus is the lock RG Snyman, who made such a dent in the England team on your of South Africa last summer.

He is expected to join Harlequins."

What a signing if we can get him, he is a monster and coming into his prime.

I always wonder how much these things are true or just rehashing old rumours to fill column space. Would be great if it was true though.

Very exciting if true, but I too wonder if Slot has just regurgitated old news at that point in the article.

Heís very good - and will be well aware of the announced signings. Seems unlikely he would just say it based on old rumour given how long itís been since it started and club made all the signings public.

Hasnít he been out for a while due to ankle surgery?

Looks like this weekend is his first game back after a long spell out - he's in the press this week commenting on his return:

https://www.heraldlive.co.za/sport/2019-04-23-rg-snyman-hoping-to-play-himself-into-rugby-world-cup-contention/

He doesn't make any references to where he might be next season, but I'm definitely reading too much into that.

Understand your cynicism to some extent (and I'm sure you'll be joined by many on here) but Symons and Crumpton have been two of our best players this season. So I always think the "they've been out of the game for ages with injuries, therefore bad signing" judgement is a bit crude. Snyman has shown, when fit, that he's a dominant force on the field. Just what we need and what we've all been crying out for for as long as I can remember. He'd go through a medical and be subject to all the stringent tests and data profiling. If he looks good enough to Gussy then my arms are wide open.

Not to mention that Saili is now everyone's favourite at centre and they want him to start, when last season and the beginning of this there were those saying "why did we waste the money signing him?"...

Sailli was typical of our bad luck last season. Finally getting back to fitness, then seemingly minutes into his debut he gets a horrific concussion that put him out for months.

I suspect Owen Slot picked it up from Fissler and is just regurgitating

Fissler back tracked quite a while ago (unless he has changed his mind again)

Tbf he didn't backtrack 100%. He said something along the lines of "not sure, still might be coming".
