Mid 80's


The Les Boyd Copybook Tackle

It was the early-mid 1980's.

My half-jap mate Frank and I, had just turned 18 (sill at school) and were up at the local watching origin.

I cant remember which game in the series, but we are watching big Daryl Brohman in a massive run-up. He was like a freight train. He seemed unstoppable.

He was also a special player as he was one of first of the Penrith (chocolate soldiers in those days) players to play rep football.

He was symbolic of a coming of age for this emerging club.

Then ..."Whooska" we see Les Boyd run up him and king-hit-smash-pow Brohman on the jaw.

Brohman's face (jaw)and Penrith's reps dream lay in tatters.

This was the biff of biff's in my living memory-totally unsurpassed-the whack to end all whacks.

As a postscript, Brohman v Boyd made legal (and league) history as Brohman successfully sued the baby-faced assassin in court for quite a sum.

It begs the question to us biff fans-when is a biff acceptable or when is it a disgrace?

Years later, I hear that Brohman hasn't forgiven Boyd, but ironically, Boyd has seen himself clear to forgive himself.

I, Frank and big Daryl will never forget the Les Boyd copybook tackle.
