League super coach Wayne Bennett has made his biggest impact yet for his new NRL club Newcastle by ensuring that the St. George-Illawarra fullback Darius Boyd will follow him there from next year.

The Knights have confirmed that Boyd will continue his relationship with Bennett by switching to the club for the full four years of the master coach's reign.

Boyd followed Bennett from Brisbane to the Dragons in 2009 and was a major part of the joint venture club's breakthrough premiership last year.
