Salford bring in Tim Sheens as advisor

Salford Red Devils owner Dr Marwan Koukash has revealed that Kangaroos coach Tim Sheens will be visiting the club to offer his advice.

Salford have endured a difficult start to the 2015 Super League season, losing to Warrington and being humiliated at home by St Helens.

But now the 64-year-old Australian World Cup winning coach, who has been in charge of the Kangaroos since 2009, will be helping out over the next three weeks or so.

“A friend of mine will be visiting soon, to look around the club and give me his opinion,” said Koukash.

“I’m not the most experienced person in rugby league – I’ve only been in the sport for three years – and sometimes I need extra help.

“That friend is Tim Sheens, who will visit me for three weeks and advise me on various bits and pieces and help put some systems and structures into the club.”

Following the defeat to St Helens last week, Koukash tweeted: “I have had enough.”

He has refused to elaborate on what he meant by that message, however.

“I don’t want to discuss that publicly,” he added.

“I discussed it with my boys. We had a great meeting and whatever was discussed in-house is going to stay private.

“I’m not walking out on the club, we’re going to come out fighting.

“I’m going to work harder and if Iestyn wants additional resources he will have them at his disposal.”
