Tim Sheens has resigned as Australia’s national coach to take up a three-year contract as full-time director of rugby with Salford.

The 64-year-old former Canberra, Wests Tigers and North Queensland boss, who guided the Kangaroos to victory in the 2013 World Cup, has spent the last two months working at the Red Devils on a short-term basis at the invitation of owner Marwan Koukash and has now decided to make the role permanent.

“Now we’ve survived successfully in Super League, I’ve had a good talk with the family and to Marwan,” Sheens said. “H e offered me a three-year deal and we’ve accepted it.

“So I’ve resigned from the Australian group and I’ll be ready to start in November.”
