South Africa international RG Snyman faces a long spell on the sidelines after Munster confirmed the Rugby World Cup-winning lock has torn his anterior-cruciate ligament.
Snyman only made his debut for the province on Saturday against Leinster and landed awkwardly having stolen a lineout in the early stages of the Pro14 fixture.
Munster have confirmed that the 25-year-old has torn his ACL and will now meet with a specialist to discuss surgery.
Snyman has won 23 caps for the Springboks and was part of the squad which won the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
