Darius Boyd to be a Brisbane Bronco for life

DARIUS Boyd will finish his career at the Broncos with the Brisbane skipper to receive a $3.5 million payday - the biggest contract of his glittering NRL career.

The Courier-Mail can reveal Broncos chief executive Paul White is in the final stages of broking a four-year deal to keep the off-contract Boyd at Red Hill until the end of 2021.

White will meet with Boyd's manager George Mimis in Sydney tomorrow with a view to finalising the multi-million dollar upgrade after Friday night's clash against Parramatta at ANZ Stadium.

The Broncos plan to formally announce the deal in the next two to three weeks.

Brisbane have signed eight top-liners in four months, eroding their spending power under the salary-cap, but coach Wayne Bennett last night confirmed they have the funds to make Boyd a Bronco for life.
