Having recently resigned with the Raiders until of the end of 2018, Shannon Boyd is an integral part of the Raiders future plan. A devastating front-rower more akin to a man mountain, Boyd played 20 games for the Raiders in 2015. Boyd enjoyed a career high five tries in 2015 often a result of his brute strength and fearsome pace.
A former Raiders rookie of the year in 2014, Boyd has continued his strong development to be renowned as one of the finest up and coming front rowers in the game. At just 23 years of age Boyd has a very bright future to look forward to.
Originally from Cowra, Boyd spent many years working his way through the Raider’s grades. 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.
