Speedy small who is clever around goal. Born in Queensland, Boyd grew up playing touch football and basketball before being introduced to football by Crows joint vice-captain Sally Riley after moving to Darwin. She developed her craft with NT Thunder and impressed at the U18 National Championships with the undefeated Allies, finishing third for the side in tackles (15) and showcasing her incredible athleticism.
