Hull KR coach to face former club at employment tribunal

Tim Sheens is taking his former club Salford to employment tribunal over alleged unpaid wages

The coach of Hull KR, Tim Sheens must face his old club Salford in front of an employment tribunal, after claiming £50,000 in unpaid wages.

In June 2015, Mr Sheens arrived at the AJ Bell Stadium to provide assistance to the coach of Salford, Ian Watson. However, he was announced as the new coach for Hull KR for 2017 at the beginning of September.

The 66-year-old Australian stepped down from his position at the Red Devils before the game between Rovers and Salford on October 1, to sidestep any conflict of interest.

The hearing is set to be held on Wednesday, February 8 in Manchester, says the League Express.

The owner of Salford, Marwan Koukash, reacted angrily back in June 2015 against speculation that the club was in an unhealthy financial position.

He claimed at the time that players are always paid, either on time or more often than not early, stating that during the last month at the time of speaking, the staff at the club were paid twelve days early.
