THE NRMA Insurance Broncos can today confirm Darius Boyd will be a member of the club’s 2015 NRL squad after the Test back agreed to terms on a contract.
Boyd will re-join the club he began his NRL career with later this month after agreeing to take up a three-year deal with the Broncos.
Broncos’ chief executive Paul White said the club was ecstatic to have finalised the arrangement with the knowledge of what the international would add to the club.
“We are excited to have finalised this agreement with Darius,” said White.
“He began as a Bronco and has now played for his State and country and won premierships.
“He comes back to us now as one of the elite players of the competition.
“At age 27 he is at the top of the game and will bring us a point of difference with the skills he possesses.
“Those skills will add to what is already an exciting and emerging array of backline talent at our club.
“We look forward to welcoming him to the club and supporting him in his development both on and off the field.”
Boyd has now played 20 Origin matches for Queensland and 17 Tests for Australia, and earlier this season he played his 200th NRL match.
Boyd has been a part of two premiership wins, the first as a Bronco in his debut year in the NRL in 2006 as a 19-year-old.
He also won a grand final with the Dragons in 2010, a match in which he was named the best player on the field and received the Clive Churchill Medal.
