Boyd has a dig at Australian coach Tim Sheens

He is likely to miss the Test match on the 6th of May after injuring his hamstring, but Darius Boyd has come out and made a remarkable statement, saying that Sheens would not have picked him anyways.

”To be honest, I don’t think I’d get picked if I was fit anyway,” Boyd said

”I’m just looking to get back on the field for the Dragons. That’s the main thing.”

When asked the reasons why he thought that he would not be picked in the side, his response was rather blunt.

“I didn’t get picked last year. It’s not something I’m really concentrating on. If it happens, it happens.”

It is a big blow for the Dragons side, who are beginning to hit their stride, and Dragons coach Wayne Bennett says that it will be a little while before Boyd returns to the side.

“He’s got a hamstring tear, so he’s going to be out for a while,” Bennett said.

“I don’t think he’ll be right for the Test.”

For Boyd himself however, he has long had a history of both hamstring and quad problems that have plagued him throughout his career.

“It’s one of those things I suppose,” he said.

“We’ll just have to see how it pulls up tomorrow I suppose. I always get those little strains and niggling injuries. I had a bit of a strain in my hamstring [right], so to come in on my left is different. I just want to get back on the field as soon as I can.”

Whilst he is shattered to be on the sideline, it will give Boyd the chance to mull over his future, but the star fullback has not decided what he is going to do, as of yet.

‘I’m just weighing up my options at the moment. I don’t really know what I’m going to do,” Boyd said.

”It’s a very hard decision. Last time [when leaving Brisbane for the Dragons] I was in the situation where I didn’t really have much of a choice.

”In saying that, it makes it even harder having to choose. It’s going to be a tough decision either way.”
