Kings put faith in Kiwi Mooar

2012-11-27 07:47

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.

    I though the Kings whole mandate and their political goal was transformation and local development. I seems that a lot of out of province players and internationals have been bought - yes bought - in. Hmmm. Someone is being very Cheeky.

      Your comment comes on the back of a local 18 year old kid being signed to the squad as a winger for next season... Baby steps, Kings will never be able to achieve all it's goals AND be successful next season... especially if poor performance could see them relegated.

      you need to develop you brain first, before commenting on things you dont understand. Plus i believe both the sharks and the Lions had New Zealand coaches, if that is what is needed to build the brand then let them do it. Also you cant develope players if you have no money and other provinces buy all your talent.

    Go Kings !! excited for the Super Rugby season!

      I hope the Kings loose every single game and get relegated ... and that will be the end of people having to put up with the two pukes. I have nothing against Eastern Province or the folks that live there, but EARN your way into contention instead of manipulating your way in.

    Do they have any local staff or Players? All I heard before they managed to bribe/blackmail their way into the S15 was how they wanted to develop the local game and players and transform rugby? However since they have got in all i now hear is how they want to be allowed to get more foreign players the 2 max and now they are hiring foreign coaches as well. In my mind this should be a all BEE team. PS cant wait for the Kings to get thrashed. - 2012-11-27 09:45
