Teenage tyro to wow crowd
BRISBANE have a new blondhaired halfback and he is set to take the NRL by storm.
Tanah Boyd is the Gold Coast teenage sensation that has 10 NRL clubs lining up for his signature. Boyd (pictured) is only 16 but he will wear the Maroons No.7 jersey on Wednesday in the under-18s State of Origin curtain raiser at ANZ Stadium.
Talent scouts believe he is one of the hottest playmaking prospects to come through the junior ranks in recent years. Allan Langer was Brisbane’s last sandy-haired No.7 wizard but Boyd’s biggest inspiration comes from down south. “I’ve always looked up to Johnathan Thurston, Darren Lockyer and Joey (Andrew) Johns,” he said.
