Tim Sheens will achieve the milestone of 200 games as Head Coach of the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium on Monday, March 14.
The well respected Sheens has been in charge of Wests Tigers since 2003 and his influence on the Club on and off the field since this time has been enormous. Sheens has been the longest serving coach of Wests Tigers.
Sheens has overseen the development of stars such as Benji Marshall, Robbie Farah, Chris Lawrence, Chris Heighington, Liam Fulton and Bryce Gibbs and was the man at the helm of Wests Tigers premiership victory in 2005.
The current Australian Coach was also one of the major drawcards in Englishman Gareth Ellis and dual international winger Lote Tuqiri joining Wests Tigers.
Off contract at the end of this season, Sheens has held talks with Wests Tigers CEO Stephen Humphreys about extending his deal.
Congratulations Tim from everyone at Wests Tigers on game 200.
