Tim Sheens has left his post as head coach of Hull KR after a run of five defeats in six Super League games.

The Robins are second from bottom in the table, having lost 11 of their 16 league matches this season.

Sheens, 68, had been at KCOM Craven Park since the start of the 2017 campaign, leading the club to promotion from the Championship that year.

The Australian won 47 matches of his 84 matches in charge, drawing two and losing 35.

"A recent run of six defeats in seven league games, and an exit from the Challenge Cup at the weekend, has prompted a change," a statement on the club website said.
