Fresh off signing a contract extension that will keep him at the Titans until the end of the 2022 season, Tanah Boyd says he’s growing in confidence after his first full season under coach Justin Holbrook.
“Justin doesn’t put too much pressure on me which is something I love about him,” Boyd said, speaking to Wide World of Sports on 4BC.
“He gives me a simple role to do and I’ve just got to execute it.
“He is massive on not putting too much pressure on his players and we saw the results in the end, he’s awesome.
“I was lucky enough to get a few games under my belt and grow that confidence and where the Club is heading and how we finished the year, mixed with who we’ve got coming next year, it’s really exciting and the Club is on the way up that’s for sure.”
Boyd made 13 appearances in 2020, with 12 of those coming off the bench in a utility role with the other start at five-eighth in Round 15 against the Canberra Raiders.
“I’ll go into the pre-season focusing on the halves but if Justin needs me to play that utility role than I will,” Boyd said.
“I’m going to focus on my half stuff and try and get that down pat and see what happens.”
Boyd has existing relationships with incoming forwards David Fifita and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui and says they will add plenty to the Titans roster.
“I played a fair bit with them and I’m definitely going to feel comfortable with them coming and I’m sure they’re going to feel comfortable as well.
“We just want to hit the pre-season running and try and carry on what we finished and I’m sure we will.
“We’ll get these new blokes in, get them buying in to the culture, and hopefully we can just keep going forward.”
