Business as usual for Sheens'
return to Townsville

West Tigers NRL coach Tim Sheens says it will be business as usual when he returns to Townsville for tomorrow's NRL match with North Queensland.

Sheens lived in the sweaty tropical city for five years as Cowboys coach, mentoring key players such as captain Paul Bowman. But his return is unlikely to be sentimental.

The Wests Tigers have beaten the Cowboys only once, and never at Dairy Farmers Stadium. Sheens admitted the Tigers were underdogs, with the Cowboys showing good form in recent home wins against Manly and Melbourne despite losing to Brisbane last week.
