Broncos fullback Darius Boyd

Holmes bringing extra bite to Sharks attack

While Sharks five-eighth Maloney will dictate much of Cronulla's attack in their clash with Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night Boyd has also been carefully monitoring the development of Holmes into one of the NRL's most dangerous attacking fullbacks.

Kangaroos team-mates in last year's Four Nations tour of England and Queensland centre and wing partners in the second game of this year's Origin series, Boyd and Holmes will face off on Friday night as their respective teams seek to secure their place in the top four for at least another week.
