Kiwis captain comes out in support of Kangaroos coach

7:14 am on 15 November 2010

The Kiwis captain Benji Marshall says he'd be shattered if his side's Four Nations win over Australia, inspired by his own brilliance, came at the expense of the Kangaroos coach Tim Sheen, his boss at Wests Tigers.

The last two Australian coaches to lose finals promptly fell on their swords, and Sheens admitted before Saturday night's match he could be sacked if they lost.

But Marshall regards Sheens as the best coach in the world.
