Tim stays, Benji fit, Prince

Great news for the Wests Tigers overnight, with premiership winning coach Tim Sheens re-signing for three more years. The new contract will see Sheens at the club until the end of 2009.

It?s a huge boost for the club, with Sheens attracting plenty of attention from rival clubs following his efforts in steering the joint venture to their maiden premiership.

In more good news, it has been revealed that gun five-eighth Benji Marshall has overcome his off-season shoulder operation and will be available for the first round when the Tigers take on the Dragons.

However, not all things are rosy for the Tige?s, with rumours suggesting that playmaker and halfback Scott Prince may be making his way to the Gold Coast next season.
