    Cape Town - Sharks defence coach, Omar Mouneimne, has requested an early release from his contract, which was granted, to pursue an offer from Stade Francais.

    Commenting on his departure, Director of Rugby Gary Gold said: “Omar has worked tremendously hard on our defensive structures over the past few months. His efforts resulted in us being one of the top defensive teams in the 2016 Super Rugby competition.

    “We thank him for his invaluable contribution to the team, in a short space of time, and wish him the very best for this new opportunity he has decided to pursue.”

    Mouneimne added: “Never in my life have I felt this truly accepted as I did at The Sharks. This is truly a wonderful family environment and I would like to thank Gary Gold for giving me the wonderful opportunity to join this team.  

    "My thanks are also extended to John Smit for always having an open-door policy and assisting me, the Sharks staff for being unbelievable, but most of all I would like to thank the players for their tireless work ethic and for accepting my methods. This place is world-class.”
