"Omar is a world-class coach. He's absolutely superb in his specialised field of defence, collisions and the breakdown, and is certainly the best I have ever worked with. He's been my right-hand man and done a fantastic job during what was an extremely challenging Super Rugby season, just as he did in last season's unbeaten Currie Cup run."
“Omar is an outstanding coach, who I would not hesitate to recommend to any coach or team. He is passionate, intense, exceptionally hard working and very knowledgeable about the game and will be an asset to any league or team that he is involved in.”
“It is my opinion that Omar is on par with all international coaches I have worked with, and against, where he would prove to be a valuable asset to any team and league he operates in.”
"We've been put through our paces by Omar, the defensive coach. I think he's been probably one of the biggest differences this season to me and the rest of the boys. I think I just took that same energy from the Sharks to the Springboks.”
“Having played against Edinburgh for Newcastle in a friendly last Friday, I can tell you first hand that their work at the defensive breakdown is impressive. Coach Omar Mouneimne has enthused the Edinburgh players and given them free-reign to cause disruption at the breakdown with swinging legs, counter rucking and jackling all in evidence last week, and indeed against Leicester the week previously.”

"Edinburgh have gone 225 minutes without conceding a try which wing Dougie Fife believes is a result of the systems their former defence coach South African, Omar Mouneimne, put in place.
Omar was a big loss, but I'm sure he is still looking at how we are doing to see how we are putting into effect what he taught us. Losing a defence coach is hard but it has almost brought us closer together.
The boys are putting in extras and defence does win you games. We are seeing big hits and turnovers regularly now."
"His massive knowledge, work ethic and unique skill set really sets Omar apart from most other coaches I have seen or have worked with."
