Boyd representing Australia in rugby league.

Former Cootamundra, NSW and Australian rugby league representative Les Boyd has thrown his hat in the ring for the December 4 Cootamundra Local Government elections.

     Boyd was born in Nyngan, however, spent much of his adult life in Cootamundra when he wasn’t playing professional rugby league and continues to live there today.

    He rose to the top of his code and for many years now, has had a street and an oval in Cootamundra named after him. Les Boyd Oval.

Boyd will be running alongside 11 other candidates in a field of 12 vying for 9 positions.

More to come.
