Cape Town - The Southern Kings will have two New Zealand coaches at the helm during next year's Super Rugby competition.

According to Die Burger's website, Brad Mooar has been named as attacking coach by director of rugby Alan Solomons.

Mooar thus joins fellow Kiwi Matt Sexton (head coach) as the Port Elizabeth-based team set their sights on impressing in their first season in the competition.

Mooar worked as the EP Kings' specialist skills coach during this year's Currie Cup First Division, which they won after beating the Pumas 26-25 in the final.

Omar Mouneimne will be the Super Rugby side's defence coach.

Mooar's appointment means David Maidza, who was the Kings' backline coach for the past three years, will be in charge of EP's Vodacom Cup backline, with Ex-Bok prop Rob Kempson taking charge of the forwards and De Wet Barry the defence coach.

Barend Pieterse will work as lineout coach of both the Super Rugby and Vodacom Cup sides.
