Meet Jack Boyd, the uni student who took a hanger as good as any taken this season

Shai Bolton, Jack Riewoldt and Liam Ryan have pulled in some stunning marks so far this season, but a university student turned VFL player took a mark on Friday night that could easily sit alongside those of the AFL’s high flyers.

Northern Bullants forward Jack Boyd pulled in a stunning mark against the Frankston Dolphins, taking a grab that one Twitter user dubbed the ‘Hanger in Franga’.

Jack Boyd soars high for the Northern Bullants.

“I was supposed to come back [to NAB League] as a 19-year-old last year but that was when COVID-19 struck so I missed the whole year of footy, which was a little disheartening,” Boyd said.

“It’s just great to be back playing footy. I kept in contact with the Bullants. I trained with them a few times when they were the Northern Blues in 2019 and [coach] Josh Fraser kept me in the loop and had me come down for this season.

“The Bullants have had to adapt a lot with COVID and the rules constantly changing. We have had to adapt on which grounds we could use and what training we could do. We have just kept going and kept putting our best foot forward.”

Jack Boyd flies high!
