Johan 'Joe' Snyman (born 9 July 1986) is a South African rugby union player, currently playing with Welsh team Scarlets.[1]

He was born in Evander, but went to Outeniqua High School in George. He played for the SWD Eagles at the 2004 Craven Week, before moving to the Natal Sharks in 2005. He was also called up to the South Africa Under 19 squad for the 2005 Under 19 Rugby World Championship, which was won by South Africa.

He made 11 appearances for the Natal Sharks Vodacom Cup and Currie Cup sides. They then sent him to the International Rugby Academy in New Zealand, where he also had a short spell at New Zealand ITM Cup team Hawke's Bay Magpies.[2]

In 2009, he moved to the Golden Lions, where he played in their Vodacom Cup and Currie Cup teams (including being part of the squad that won the 2011 Currie Cup Premier Division) and also played two games for UJ in the 2011 Varsity Cup.

He joined the Eastern Province Kings for the start of the 2012 Vodacom Cup season.

On 5 September 2012, he joined Welsh team Scarlets for the 2012–13 season on a three-year contract.[3]
