I have thought for a while that Boyd would be a world class centre. Easily add a couple of years to his career. Smart defensively. Good passing game. Could get involved from dummy half ala Hodges's. I wouldn't be pissed if Slater is picked and Boyd is centre with Oates.
He hasn't been named at centre before for Qld (I think anyway), but he's spent plenty of time there. Particularly while playing next to Tonga. I remember Boyd made Gasnier his bitch multiple times when Tonga was pushed out to the wing with a dislocated shoulder.

Boyd is a good defender in the line. He's a great front on tackler. Ironically, where he struggles in defence is in broken play i.e. at fullback.

Doesn`t have great acceleration from a standing start . Can go up a gear once he`s running . Doesn`t help his last line defense when he`s gotta chase from a standing start .
