Cape Town - It's been a life-changing couple of weeks for Springbok lock RG Snyman.

Not only did the 2.07m (6-foot-9) giant lock help the Springboks to a third Rugby World Cup title in Japan earlier this month - he also got married!

Oh, and he also found the time for some post-World Cup 'bomb squad' ink...

Snyman took to his Instagram account to confirm he'd tied the knot with this "best friend", Saskia Redelinghuys.

Snyman's former Super Rugby side, the Bulls, also posted a picture on social media congratulating the happy couple.

Snyman, 24, will miss the 2020 Super Rugby season due to his commitments with Japanese side, Honda Heat.

Snyman has been a regular in the Springbok set-up during Rassie Erasmus' tenure, having played 23 Tests for the Springboks since making his debut in June 2018.
