In the least surprising news of the week, the Broncos are in the process of ironing out a new deal with fullback Darius Boyd.
According to Fox Sports, the negotiations have involved providing opportunities for Boyd after his playing career ends, including both employment and the opportunity to pursue study.
“The thing that excites me a bit more than just a straight contract negotiation is highlighting the opportunities that can come from his time at the club,” said Broncos CEO Paul White. “Once the contract is finalised, the work doesn’t go away.”
“Providing him the opportunity to pursue study is part of the whole package of him committing to the Broncos.”
The new deal will reportedly be for either three or four years.
Boyd has played 261 first grade games for the Broncos, Knights and Dragons, 27 Origins for Queensland, and 23 Tests for Australia.
He’s #5 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
