|World Cup could be Sheens' incentive|

Tim Sheens says he'll take time to consider his future as Australian rugby league team coach but admits the lure of winning the World Cup back could be an incentive to stay on.
Sheens arrived back in Australia on Tuesday with members of his Kangaroos squad fresh from their triumph in the Four Nations series in Britain.
The Wests Tigers mentor will have to wait until after the restructure that comes with rugby league's new independent commission before hefinds out whether he will be offered the national team position again after three years in the job.
And while Sheens, 61, acknowledged it can be a draining task on top of his NRL club duties he did not rule it out.
Having reclaimed the Four Nations crown from New Zealand, Sheens was asked if the chance to do likewise with the World Cup in 2013 could tempt him to stay on.
"Australia have got a piece of silverware back and I suppose we're chasing the other one now from New Zealand," Sheens told reporters.
"But that's two years away, it's too far away for me to be considering (it)."
Sheens said he would take a short break away from football before resuming his duties with Wests Tigers, which will give him time to think about his long-term future as Kangaroos coach.
"I don't want to be considering (staying on as Australian coach) at the moment. We'll stop home and have a think about it, let it sink in and go from there," he said.
"... It's something you can't do forever. I understand that. I'm just happy to be back with the trophy."
