After guiding Australia to World Cup triumph in England, Tim Sheens has been linked with the St George Illawarra Dragons.

The 63 year old's last coaching assignment in the NRL was a decade-long stint with the Wests Tigers.

The four time premiership winning coach was effectively withdrawn as the merged club's coach in 2012 despite having two years remaining on his deal with the club when it was assumed the players needed to hear a new voice.

Since 1984, Sheens has coached at Penrith, Canberra, North Queensland and Wests Tigers.

Sheens, whose coaching career started with a loss to St George 30 years ago, established a reputation for being able to get underperforming teams - such as the Dragons - back on track.

A bonus for Dragons officials would be the chance to reunite Sheens with Benji Marshall who was instrumental in the Wests Tigers grand final victory over North Queensland in 2005.
