This article presents information on the remarkable career of rugby football coach Tim Sheens. Sheens just missed the finals in his debut season but his rival coaches were so impressed they voted him coach of the year. He signed to coach the Canberra Raiders late in 1987, when they were fighting to make the finals. They did great and got all the way to the grand final. Sheens was promised a host of star players by Super League but they never delivered. He said that he has been blessed to have a host of great players like Greg Alexander, Ricky Stuart, Laurie Daley, Mal Meninga, Benji Marshall and many others.
