The planets are beginning to align for super coach Wayne Bennett to return home to Brisbane next season, with Anthony Griffin to be axed unless the Broncos can secure a top-four finish.

Bennett is expected to see out this season at the Knights, but beyond that the club’s new ownership structure may mean he walks away from the final season of a four-year deal.

If Bennett does depart, there is no question Newcastle fullback Darius Boyd will also follow, meaning the Broncos could have Ben Barba, Anthony Milford and Boyd in a hot backline next season.

Sport Confidential can reveal influential figures at the Broncos have discussed the prospect of Bennett becoming head coach, or a coaching director, in which case Kevin Walters would most likely be the club’s head coach.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Even if he was cheap, which he won't be, where will he play? The only spot would be the left wing, and IMO Vidot is doing that job fine. Could have done with him last year, but not now.

Centre- if he wants to continue his representative career once Slater retires and Inglis goes to fullback he is going to need to be playing centre for his club team.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

As has been stated, we don't really need him and i'm stuffed if i know where he'd play ???

Could this be the parting ways of the Bennett/Boyd relationship ?

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Boyd could play outside hodges and move Copley to centre. Send Hoffman packing

1 Barba
2 Vidot
3 Copley
4 Hodges
5 Boyd
6 Milford

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Boyd for Hoffman would be ok. Best he could hope for is a wing spot. Id prefer copley though.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Why on earth would we need Boyd? You gotta be joking! Shouldn't even be having this discussion.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

I don't want Boyd back. If it happens though he can play where is best for the team and no where else. If that is as Milford's personal cheer girl then so be it

Re: Darius Boyd return?

No thanks, that money could be better spent elsewhere.

Only circumstances I'd take him back under is - dirt cheap, happy to play in the centres or on the wing.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Hells no. i never really rated him as a player even at his best. sure he belongs in first grade but hes no were near as good as what we already will have next year. hell even hofffman moves on we drop reed and copley plays centre. i would still rather maranta on wing then boyd best thing about maranta is hes safe as houses for bombs and cross field kicks

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Almost as bad as Griffin staying on as coach. Almost.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

Boyd is in the same category as Hunt for me -- **** no.

Seriously, if Boyd is released/can release himself he should look at the Dogs. Good halves combo, great pack, great coach. If I were Boyd and my goal was premierships I'd be licking my lips at this prospect. Honestly, how much of a fucking chicken is he that he has to follow WB to every single club?

Re: Darius Boyd return?

I find it funny that some people are begging for changes but as soon as there are options it's no, no, no, no, no! Every single time. Tell us who you would take then?

I'd take Boyd back as a winger if we were to lose Reed and Hoffman.

Re: Darius Boyd return?

What's with all the hate for Boyd? Remember he left because we didn't offer him a contract.

He's a proven performer and I'd take him back in a heart beat. More so if we could offload Hoffman and Reed at the same time. Heck I'd chuck in Maranta as well (you pick wingers to score tries, not to be "safe under the high ball").
