Biography:

Winning the 2006 premiership with the Broncos in his first NRL season was the start of a long and prosperous career for Darius Boyd.

Beginning as a winger, where he represented Australia in 2008, Boyd followed coach and mentor Wayne Bennett to the Dragons in 2009 and came into his own at fullback.

He was an integral part of the club's 2010 premiership, winning the Clive Churchill Medal for his performance in the grand final against the Roosters.

After heading to the Knights with Bennett in 2012, Boyd again followed the coach back home to Brisbane in 2015 and went within a whisker of claiming his third title, only for the Cowboys to claim the most dramatic of extra-time wins.

Playing in an era of unprecedented Queensland dominance, Boyd racked up the second-most tries in Maroons history with 17 tries from 28 games, mostly on the wing.

While Boyd retired at the end of 2020 with the Broncos struggling in a rebuilding period, his legacy as one of the top performers of his generation was long solidified.
