Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) Chairman Peter V’landys AM has paid tribute to Kangaroos captain Boyd Cordner who announced his retirement today.

Cordner represented the Kangaroos on 20 occasions, including two World Cup victories, New South Wales 16 times, including three series wins and his club Sydney Roosters in 183 games. He was part of three Premiership winning Roosters sides, twice as club captain.

Mr V’landys said Cordner is one of the game’s great leaders.

“Boyd is a true leader. He captained his club, state and country to great success. He reached the absolute pinnacle of rugby league and leaves the game having done it all – Premierships, Origins and World Cups,’’ he said.

“Perhaps most importantly, Boyd is a great person. His friendly and warm personality made him very popular with all he came into contact with. He’s a role model and someone young players aspire to be.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Boyd’s career and contribution on and off the field. On behalf of the Commission, I wish him every success in the next chapter of his life.”
