The Broncos have left the Cowboys’ finals hopes on life support, but have now got concerns of their own, after fullback Darius Boyd failed to finish the match due to a hamstring injury.
According to SMH, Boyd downplayed the severity of the injury post-match, although it didn’t look good when he went down clutching behind his thigh on the stroke of halftime. He failed to return from the break.
“It’s not too bad,” Boyd said. “Hopefully it’s just a week, maybe not even.”
The injury couldn’t have come at worse time for the Broncos, who’ve now locked themselves into either 2nd or 3rd, and will play either the Roosters or Eels next weekend for a preliminary final spot.
Let’s hope Boyd makes a quick recovery.
