Looks like he confirmed it himself on social media.

Try Liebenberg! World-class offload by the current SA best lock Snyman

I used to think we had the best set of locks in the world with Lawes,Launchbury,Itoje and Kruis but I'd say it's SA now with EE,LDJ,Snyman,Mostert and PSDT. Thoughts?

Yes but none of them will be playing in South Africa next year, and our lock depth is extremely promising snd competitive in our own country. Take Spencer and Stooke, an international class lock partnership that isn’t even capped yet!

I’ve been watching the Blues v Bulls game for the past 10 minutes and I’m not overly impressed. I’ve watched a few games over recent weeks and none have been as good as people make out.

Poor defending, knock ons and teams not really getting anywhere. All of this in stadiums 3/4 empty.

I don’t get the fascination.

Like I said you get your poor games and the atmosphere doesn't help but I've saw worse in the GP. I'm looking at it as a whole and it's just my opinion.

Should have been a yellow card for Waratahs there and a penalty try awarded to the Rebels. No arm tackle which was deliberate and cynical.

How the ref didn’t notice that straight away is ludicrous.

Redeemed himself with spotting the knock on somewhat

I don’t know, I don’t think spotting a knock on makes up for not giving a yellow card and penalty try if I’m honest.

Bit of a joke that the Rebels weren’t rewarded that try! One of these days they’ll just replace refs with drones!
