Still to taste defeat in an Australia jersey, Darius Boyd is desperate to preserve that record against Wayne Bennetts England next week.In 20 appearances in the green and gold, Boyd is yet to finish on the losing side and wants to ensure facing a Bennett-coached team will be the only first hell experience at the London Olympic Stadium next Sunday.Boyd, 29, has an incredibly close relationship with the seven-time premiership winner - the only man to mentor him at club level - and followed him from Brisbane, to St George Illawarra to Newcastle before reuniting with him again at the Broncos in 2014.Ive had different rep coaches, but Ive never played against Wayne before, Boyd said.Hes coached me my whole career so it will be something a bit different.But at the end of the day, you play against the players not the coach but Im sure hell have a few tricks up his sleeve.Bennetts side need to beat Australia to have any chance of qualifying for the final with the Kangaroos needing to also avoid defeat to mathematically secure their spot in the decider at Anfield on November 20.Mal Meninga will name what he considers his strongest side for the game and Boyd said having Bennett in their corner will give the hosts the belief they can spring an upset.Hell be telling them what he always tells his sides: Complete your sets, defend well and hold them in the grind, he said.If you can keep a team down to a low score you can always sneak a try and come home with the win.England are a dangerous side already with big forwards and a lot of strike power out wide.With Wayne there it adds something extra. But its going to take time, it wont happen overnight.The more time they spend under Wayne the better they will be.Boyd played down the significance of his remarkable unbeaten record which stems back to his debut in 2008.Ive been very lucky, Ive missed a few games over the years through injury, he said.But hopefully it can continue for at least two more games.
