The entire Springbok team is pretty much still a topic of discussion wherever you look - and with good reason.

The Rugby World Cup meant so much for South Africa, and after their victory against New Zealand in the final, the Springboks were seen as heroes for the country.

Along with the World Cup win came international recognition and celebrity status for the Springboks, which is probably why many people were shocked when they saw the lock sitting in economy class while on a plane. 

The picture was shared on social media with the caption, "This guy is a World Cup winner. Get him the first class seat he deserves".

Many X users agreed with the post, saying that the Springbok star deserves better. 

"He is a national treasure, send Inkwazi to fly him around. I’m not joking."

Others praised Snyman for being humble and down to earth. 

"What makes Most Springboks players so humble? I don't get it."
