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.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.
