Darius Boyd fails to finish Australian Kangaroos training session

AUSTRALIA faces a nervous wait on the health of another key member of its spine after fullback Darius Boyd failed to finish the team’s first training session on Tuesday.

Boyd came off the field and was assessed for hamstring soreness midway through the session before being immediately taken back to the team hotel.

Josh Dugan and Valentine Holmes filled in at fullback for the rest of the training run, however team officials say Boyd’s early withdrawal was only a precaution.

“He’s got hamstring tightness. He’s got back to the hotel for further assessment. He’ll continue to be assessed over the next few days,” a team spokesperson said.

Boyd is the second player under an injury cloud heading into Friday’s Test against New Zealand, with star five-eighth Johnathan Thurston also battling a calf problem.
