Tim Sheens appointed
Tigers coach

After weeks of searching the Wests Tigers have appointed Tim Sheens to head the Tigers for the next three seasons.

Sheens has already begun planning for season 2003 and will meet with club officials and player managers in an attempt to assess the talent at the club and identify areas on which the club needs to improve.

The premiership winning coach has the toughest coaching job in the NRL and his days with the Green Machine will seem like a walk in the park compared with the volatile situation at the Tigers.
