With his future still up in the air, it would appear that the Newcastle Knights are now the front-runners to secure his services for 4 seasons, but the Dragons are sure to fight for him all the way.
The Titans, who had already signed Bulldogs centre Jamal Idris, said that they withdrew their offer, after Boyd failed to meet their deadline of Monday, whereby he had to make a decision to come to the club.
“We will now divert our efforts on other players within our sights,” said Titans managing director Michael Searle on Monday.
“We wish Darius all the best with his future playing career and thank him for his engagement and interest.
“Regrettably we can no longer continue to delay other negotiations of similar importance to our club.”
