At just 21 years of age, Boyd is already a man mountain weighing in at 122kg and standing at 194cm. With talent to match, Boyd’s is viewed by many viewing him as one of the finest up and coming front rowers in the game.

Boyd started in the front row for NSW in the inaugural Under 20s State of Origin fixture in 2012 and played his first season of senior rugby league with Mounties in the NSW Cup last year.

Front-rowers tend to mature a lot later than players in other positions and unfortunately a series of troublesome injuries hampered Boyd’s progress in 2013.

Boyd will look to return to full fitness in 2014 and continue on his path to achieving his dream of debuting in the NRL with the Raiders.

Away from rugby league, Boyd enjoys the country lifestyle and rates pig hunting with his friends back on his family’s farm in Cowra as one of his great past times.
