    I threw some clips together of the many great plays from this season and career highlights. Enjoy.

    This is great haha.

    I'll admit he was excellent for us in 09, 10 and the first half of 11 when our team was pretty dominant. By all accounts he turned into even more of a lazy, disinterested merkin at newie, and of course some of his "efforts" this year have been embarrassing.

    Origin stats well and truly padded by being on the end of that unstoppable qlderp backline, and of course playing some of the weakest nsw sides ever assembled. A truly amazing highlight reel of getting the ball 5-10m out and strolling over the line, followed by kicking the ball into the crowd and celebrating like he'd just beaten 8 blokes on a 80m run to the try line!

    As much as I have been entertained by Boyd and his unwillingness to remotely contact opponents in a contact sport, it really is rather sad. He has always made himself/been a target of scorn, and I genuinely don't think he knows why, because he has been an outstanding player through parts of his career.

    To see how poor he is now, this video summed up both how funny and how tragic it is.

    Maybe he has succumed to the dreaded Langlands syndrome.

    Quick! Someone go out and buy him some white boots.

    Tragic really.

    Plodded to 300. Seibold should have cut him at 299.

    He was quite good in his prime but I can’t help he has been carried a lot throughout his club career and would his origin stats look remotely as good as it is without Inglis serving him tries on a platter.

    I know it was four years ago, I know he scored, and I don't remotely follow the cows (apart from that night)...but that one handed carry still makes me nervous!

    If his name was Dave Boyd he wouldn’t have had half as much shit put on him.

    That's an incredible number of misses from not even halfway through a season. You could also include more hands up in the air from recent seasons, and sideways crabbing from when he started.

    They already commissioned the idea for the Boyd statue when he retires, in his signature pose:

    I would not compare Boyd to Langlands. Langlands problem was never lack of heart. His problem in the 1975 Grand Final was a pain killing injection at half time which hit the nerve and deadened his leg so he could not run. He tried to play on in 1976 as he did not want to go out on the memory of how he performed in the 1975 Grand Final but injuries early in the season cruelled him so he retired mid-season.

    By comparison, Boyd is a pea heart.

    All of the defensive efforts in the video give hope to this entire forum that we can all be NRL fullbacks.

    And for 800k. Promoted to captain. He'll be eating their salary cap for years.

    No wonder he is so afraid of an injury.
