My form wasn't up to Origin standard: Boyd

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 30/05/2017 Matt Coughlan

Test prop Shannon Boyd admits his form had not been strong enough to be selected for State of Origin I, but says that won't make watching it any easier.

While injury meant the 24-year-old was forced to withdraw from this month's Anzac Test, a return to full fitness was not enough for NSW coach Laurie Daley to find a place for him in Wednesday night's series opener.

"Watching the game is going to suck, not being able to be there, but my form wasn't good enough to get picked," Boyd said on Tuesday.
