ARLC statement regarding Tim Sheens

The Australian Rugby League Commission has paid tribute to Tim Sheens, who is stepping down from his role as Holden Kangaroos coach.

Mr Sheens has informed the Commission that he will not be seeking re-appointment to the position, in order to pursue other opportunities in the UK.

NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg said Mr Sheens had been a wonderful coach during his time with the Kangaroos, from 2009 until 2015.

“Tim’s record speaks for itself – his teams won 26 of 31 Test matches while he was Kangaroos coach,” Mr Greenberg said.

“Tim has been an enormously successful Kangaroos coach, winning a World Cup and two Four Nations tournaments during that time.

“We certainly thank Tim for his service and wish him all the best for the future.”

Following a review of the Kangaroos set-up, the ARLC is yet to make a decision on Kangaroos Head Coach for 2016 and beyond.
