The NSW Rugby League Board today met to discuss the process for appointing a new State of Origin coach.
In the course of doing so the Board considered the existing policy for appointing a coach who has no current NRL club affiliation. The board decided to affirm this policy.
NSWRL will now embark on a process of identifying suitable candidates who fulfil the qualification of having no current NRL club affiliation.
The Board has not fixed a time frame within which this process will take place. The clear objective of the process is to find the best possible candidate rather than to be constrained by time limits.
