Brad Mooar: Heading back to NZ

The Kings have announced that their back-line coach Brad Mooar has left the franchise and will be returning to New Zealand for personal reasons.

"I can confirm that Brad has left the Southern Kings and will be returning home; I wish him well," said Kings director of rugby, Alan Solomons.

Eastern Province Kings president Cheeky Watson said Mooar, who played at fly-half for various Canterbury teams before turning to coaching would be missed.

"The Kings would like to thank Brad for his contribution to the Southern Kings, and wish him all the best for the future," said Watson

Before joining the Kings Mooar has been a performance analyst for the Canterbury ITM Cup team, the Canterbury Colts assistant coach, the Crusaders Development resource coach and the Canterbury Colts head coach.

Meanwhile, according to the superxv.com website Solomons has been linked with a move to Edinburgh as head coach but he said that his only focus is ensuring that the Kings remain in Super Rugby by winning their promotion/relegation battle with the Lions next month.

"My total focus is on the Southern Kings and ensuring that they remain in the Super Rugby competition next year," he said.

Solomons said his commitment to making the franchise successful had not waivered since he started his coaching stint at the Port Elizabeth-based franchise in their match against the British and Irish Lions in 2009.

"I've been a part of the Southern Kings campaign since the formation of the team in 2009," he added.
