Knights fullback Darius Boyd has credited a series of team meetings for his side's gutsy performance against Manly, admitting the honesty sessions have the potential to turnaround their season.  

Speaking after the Club's heartbreaking 15-14 loss against the Sea Eagles on Monday night, Boyd revealed how a number of team talks has helped galvanise his teammates.    

The Kangaroos and Maroons star says the Knights are now all working on the same page, a quality he hopes can continue in the coming weeks.

"We had a few meetings through the week and we talked about a lot of things," Boyd reveals.

"I think those things really stuck to the players minds and hopefully we can keep on that same path and move forward.

"It’s been tough. 

"We’ve had a few different circumstances this year, but we need to stick together as a team and just do our best and do it for the fans and everyone that supports us.

"We are getting there in patches, but we just really need to stick tight and keep performing like we did tonight, but obviously get the win." 

Boyd says he was extremely proud of his side's performance against Manly, a match the Knights led 14-4 with just 14 minutes remaining before the Sea Eagles surged home.

"Manly are very tough, so it’s very pleasing to put all that effort in," he says.

"But we just need to do it every week, because we are not doing that at the moment which is disappointing.

"We are letting everyone down a little bit, but fingers crossed we can keep putting in performances like that and we’ll win more games than we lose.

"The Sea Eagles are a great side and the most disappointing thing is we really put in a great performance against the top sides and we don’t do it against some of the sides we probably should win against.

"I suppose that’s the thing we need to work on.

"We had a really good week at training and if we can keep training that way I’m sure things will turn."

Boyd also spoke about his missed chance at field goal late in the match, confirming he called for the ball in an attempt to seal the win. 

"I’ve been practicing a fair bit at training, which is more disappointing," he says.

"You really need to kick those, because you only get one chance.

"It’s disappointing, but I’ll just go back to work and do some more practice."
