RG Snyman biography
He was born Rudolph Gerhardus Snyman on 29th January 1995 in the Potchefstroom region of the North West Province, South Africa. That would place RG Snyman age at 24 years.
He got his start as early as primary school playing for the Blue Bulls. One of his earliest matches was the Under-13 Craven Week competition of the year 2008.

He would return to the Under-13 Craven competition with the same team in 2013, this time held in Polokwane. There, his performance gained the attention of scouts and he was recruited to join the South Africa Schools team. The squad squared up against Wales, England, and France, securing victories against all three.
He then moved on to play for Blue Bulls U-19. One of the matches he played with them was the 2014 Under-19 Provincial Championship where he set the tone for an impressive tenure with the team. There, he was a participant in victories against Eastern Province U-19, Sharks U-19, and Free State U-19.

However, he was not sent out to play in the field during that period, so he went back to the Blue Bulls team when it was time for the Vodacom Cup of the year 2015.
