The NSWRL Board has taken another step in the appointment of a new coach for the NSW Blues, confirming a decision will be made at the next board meeting on Friday, 24 November.

The Board also formalised a job description and a criteria for the appointment. NSWRL CEO David Trodden outlined a timeline for the process.

"Between now and the next meeting we will interview the people who have expressed an interest, with the view to make a decision at the next board meeting which is on the 24th of November," Trodden said.

"The challenge now is to go back to them with the specific job description and selection criteria to run that past them before an interview process starts."
