Southern Kings could lose defence coach

Omar Mouneimne could leave for Lyon

p>The Southern Kings could lose another staff member as reports have surfaced
stating that Kings defence coach Omar Mouneimne is set to link up with French
club Lyon.

Eastern Province Rugby CEO, Charl Crous confirmed reports that Defence Coach,
Mouneimne, has been approached by French team Lyon OU to possibly assist them
on a consultancy basis.

“At this point in time nothing has been confirmed and there is no agreement
in place with Lyon. Omar played a valuable role in making the Southern Kings
one of the toughest teams defensively in the 2013 Super Rugby competition, and
we can already see the positive impact that his return has had on the team,”
said Crous.

Crous said Mouneimne, who is personal friends with Lyon’s manager Tim
Lane, had confirmed that he had been contacted by Lane regarding assisting on
a consultancy basis.

“We are discussing the matter with him and these talks are ongoing. We will
comment further once these talks have been finalised
