Didn't realize Matt Hilder had been around that long. Under rated player.

KNIGHTS INSIDER - Darius Boyd


Name: 00041557-image.jpg Views: 63 Size: 123.3 KB

As the Newcastle Knights prepare to take on the Canberra Raiders this Sunday, fullback Darius Boyd answered questions submitted by Members and supporters for this week's Knights Insider.

@tommacdougall via Twitter: Hey Darius, disappointing result last week, how does the team prepare for the week ahead and better themselves?

Darius Boyd: It was a disappointing result and we need to concentrate on fixing what we didn’t do so well in that game. We have been training well, so we need to continue doing that, and make sure we come out with a good attitude on Sunday.

Sharon Ross via email: I have read a story about you and your Grandma. What impact has she had on your career?

DB: I come from a small family and she has always been there for me. I always wanted to be a professional football player and I wanted it that bad, that I did anything to get it. My Grandma was there to support me and help me get to where I am now.

@AliciaNewton91 via Twitter: Can you go easy on the Blues this year? Wouldn't mind a series win, it's been a long time!

DB: (Laughs) I am just on the wing and on the back of a great team. I am very fortunate and lucky to be honest. Hopefully we play well and hopefully we win but your Blues are doing well. It is always a tough three-game series and I am sure it will be the same again this year.

@skulzy87 via Twitter: Do you see yourself staying at Newcastle after 2015?

DB: To be honest I don’t know what the future holds. I am enjoying my time here and I like Newcastle, it is a great place and the boys have all been really good to me. In saying all that, I do miss home and my family in Queensland and at some stage, I would like to finish my career back there. When that is I am not sure.

@dannythomsen26 via Twitter: Which team has the craziest fans?

DB: When I played at the Dragons, they had some great fans, but then they could give it to you when you weren’t performing. I have heard Bulldogs and the Rabbitohs can be tough and when we play against Manly at Brookvale, they can give it to the visiting club.

Justin via email: Do you like seeing the young players like Tyrone Roberts, Korbin Sims, Alex McKinnon and Robbie Rochow coming through and playing well for the Club?

DB: That is always good to see; you need your young kids coming through. I think it is also pleasing for the fans to see young players from the area come through and be a first grade player. The ones you mentioned are all great players and I think they can be rep players of the future.

Graham via email: Do you watch much footy each week?

DB: On and off. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t and it usually depends on how we go. If we don’t play too well I don’t like to watch much footy but if we play all right, I don’t mind seeing how other teams are going.

Kerry Walsh via email: You seem to like a low profile. Is that hard given you play the game at the highest level?

DB: Not really because I have always been a quiet person. I don’t go on any social media and those types of things, so it isn’t too hard.

@cboole88 via Twitter: Hi Darius, how do you like living in Newcastle?

DB: I really enjoy it. I am from the Gold Coast and it is pretty similar. Nice beaches, it is a good town, the team is great and we have good fans as well.

@boy_from_oz via Twitter: Do you have any pre-game rituals?

DB: Not really, I used to have a few but not anymore. Through the week I will do things regularly, like going out for breakfast, but I don’t have pre-game rituals. It is really a mental thing and with the more games you play, you realise different things can happen and it doesn’t mean you have a good or a bad game.

Jason Allan via email: Who is your funniest teammate?

DB: Aku for sure! His English makes us laugh and he likes to make fun of Wayne.

@skulzy 87 via Twitter: Why don't you take pressers seriously?

DB: It's not that I don’t take it seriously but I just find a lot of untruthful stories are published and it creates a wrong perception of some players in the game.

@DozzyKyle via Twitter: Hey Darius, what do you get up to during the week in your down time?

DB: Not a lot but I like going out for dinner with my wife, friends, the boys, that type of thing.

@AlexAlderton via Twitter: Hey Darius, what do you think you can do to improve your game, and what can the team do to improve their game?

DB: For me personally, just always being involved and doing my job to my full potential week in, week out. For the team, everyone turning up and playing as close to their best each week and being consistent and if we can do that, we go a long way to winning each week.

Sarah via email: If you could play at the elite level for another sport, what would it be?

DB: I would have to say NFL – I love the NFL.

Ian Hilditch via email: Darius - Thank you for the effort you put in each week. I was a fanatical Dragon's supporter until the Knights entered the comp. What was it like to win a comp with arguably the most famous NRL club of them all, especially after the years of being labelled as chokers?

DB: Thanks Ian. Any time you win a comp is something you will cherish and never forget. At the Dragons, it had been about 30 years since they had won one. The first year I was there a lot was said about being chokers. In the second year, there was a lot of pressure but we managed to get out there and win the comp. As I said, it is something I will never forget!

Robert Stevens via email: Did you expect the Raiders to beat the Storm last week and how will we go this week against them?

DB: I actually thought they were in with a chance to beat the Storm last week; the Raiders have beaten them before and I think the Raiders are one of the Storm’s bogey sides. They are a tough side the Raiders, they played well against us at home and they will be even harder, after that win, and playing them on their home ground this Sunday.
Thank you for all your questions. Next week coach Wayne Bennett will be back - tweet the coach your question using the #KnightsInsider hashtag or email it through to communications@huntersportsgroup.com.

Wayne Bennett. Surely the finest human ever to draw breath.

He can lift champions to new heights....

He can inspire some of the codes lesser mortals...

His secret, if you can call it that, he'd still rather be out there running with the boys.

One of the games true great gentleman.
