Since bursting onto the scene as a teenager with the Sydney Roosters in 2011, Boyd Cordner has achieved almost everything he possibly can in Rugby League.
He joined the foundation club as a 16-year-old with an abundance of talent and limitless potential, and since he graduated from the Newtown Jets in the NSW Cup, has become one of the game's most respected leaders.
The Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues and Australian Kangaroos captain has won three premierships within the last six years, two of which as co-captain of the Roosters, which coincided with back-to-back State of Origin series wins in 2018/19 also.
Before making his NRL debut in 2011, Cordner worked hard at his craft with the Newtown Jets in the UNE SG Ball Cup and NSW Cup (now Canterbury Cup NSW) competitions.
In 2009, Cordner won the Jets' SG Ball Cup Best and Fairest Award before transitioning into the NSW Cup squad just two years later.
In that same season, he earned an NRL debut with the Roosters in Round 13 against the Warriors before earning selection in the Junior Kangaroos train-on squad at the end of the year.
From there, the rest is history, with Cordner boasting 168 first-grade games and three premierships to his name despite being just 27 years of age.
His stellar NRL career will continue with three years left to run on his current contract with the back-to-back premiers.
