Biography

Tim Boys made his debut for the Highlanders in 2006 and he was re-selected from 2008 to 2010.  In 2011 he made a return to the squad from the Wider Training Group for one game and played a further 6 games in 2012 as a replacement for injury.  As a traditional open-side flanker, Boys had an impressive 2012 and was always near the loose ball.  An agile player, he is elusive with ball in hand and effective at the breakdown.  Boys will team up with the likes of John Hardie, Nasi Manu, Elliot Dixon and Jarrad Hoeata in 2013 to form a formidable loose unit.
