Before the current D. Boyd there was another D. Boyd who played 6 seasons for the Knights, including the clubs first ever premiership game against Parramatta in 1988.
David Boyd could play lock, back row or front row and made 114 appearances for the Knights between 1988 and 1993. Boyd scored 8 tries and kicked 1 goal which was in his final home game as a Knight. Boyd loved the tough stuff and never took a backward step. He was part of the bruise brothers pack that inflicted a lot of pain on opposing forwards. In the early days Newcastle didnít win too many games but they made up for it belting the opposition within the rules of the game.
