Newcastle fullback Darius Boyd will become the fourth youngest player in Rugby League history to reach the 200-game milestone when he takes on the Wests Tigers at Hunter Stadium on Sunday.

Boyd, who made his top grade debut with the Brisbane Broncos in 2006, will join the likes of Terry Lamb, Brett Finch and Craig Wing as the youngest players to achieve 200 games.

Former Roosters and Rabbitohs playmaker Wing is officially the youngest player to reach 200 matches (26 and 194 days in 2006), while Boyd comes in at fourth position behind Wing, Luke Patten and Finch. 

For a bloke who is only 26, Boyd has achieved plenty in his career to date.

From a premiership in his rookie season at the Broncos in '06 though to another title and the Clive Churchill Medal at St George Illawarra four years later, the Mudgeeraba Redbacks junior has a fair rap sheet.

Throw in 18 Origin's for Queensland and 14 tries as the joint highest try scorer in Origin history alongside Maroons' teammate Greg Inglis and Boyd is on track to finish his playing days as one of the game's top players.
