Munster’s squad planning for the 2022/23 season continues apace, with five more players committing their futures to the province added to the 13 to have done so in the past few days.

South African lock RG Snyman is the headline of the new batch of signings, along with three props: Stephen Archer, Roman Salanoa and Liam O’Connor, and hooker Scott Buckley.

Snyman has signed a two-year deal that will see him remain with the province until at least June 2024. Despite enduring a difficult time with injuries since arriving at the province in the summer of 2020, including an ACL injury and a freak accident leaving him with burns, the 26-year-old is well settled at his Limerick base.


An out-and-out leader, he is highly regarded across the squad and already in four short appearances he has managed to display his athleticism and skill set this season, including his first Munster try against the Stormers at Thomond Park.

The province’s most-capped prop Archer has penned a one-year contract extension. The 33-year-old is the most recent player to reach 200 caps in 2019, joining an illustrious group of 11 players to reach the milestone. Archer has now made 235 appearances since October 2009.

Loosehead prop O’Connor has also signed a one-year contract extension having made 32 Munster appearances since his 2016 debut in a Champions Cup clash against Stade Francais, while tighthead prop Salanoa has signed on for three more years at Munster after one try in eight appearances for the province to date.

A former USA U20 international, the Hawaiian joined the Leinster academy in 2018 before making the move to Munster in the summer of 2020.

Hooker Buckley follows Alex Kendellen in becoming the second academy player to be promoted to the senior squad ahead of next season, signing a two-year deal after a debut as a try-scoring man of the match in the Champions Cup win over Wasps last month.
