The disruptors of Home And Away! Looking back at some of the River Boys

River Boys are the epitome of the classic Home and Away bad boy, and the best part is the infamous group keep returning to Summer Bay.

The River Boys may be a criminal gang from Mangrove River, but why do they have to be so handsome?

Summer Bay was first introduced to the gang with The Braxton Brothers in 2011 until 2016. Lead by Darryl ‘Brax’ Braxton with the help of his three brothers Heath, Casey and Kyle who wasn’t introduced until 2012.

For six years, the residents were ensnared by the River Boys – but what is Home and Away without its dangerous heartthrobs and overall chaotic storylines?

With the 2024 announcement that a River Boy was returning to Summer Bay with Rory, we’ve listed all the troublesome bad boys that have entered the fictional town.

Continue scrolling to see some of the biggest River Boys to enter Home and Away.

The Braxton Brothers

It may be nearly ten years since The Braxton Brothers have graced our screens, but Summer Bay fans around the world still fluster at the sight of them.

Brax was played by Stephen Peacocke, was joined by his brothers Dan Ewing as Heath and Lincoln Younes as half-brother Casey to make up the nefarious yet alluring trio.

In 2015, Steven announced his departure from Home and Away. As for his character, after being sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, he organised an escape plan which turned sour. The Bay presumed the River Boy died, but in his final appearance Brax farewelled the Bay with Rickey and their son Casey.

His son was named his Brax’s half-brother, Casey who died in 2014 after being shot.

As for Heath, he made an on-screen exit in 2014 and made a brief appearance for Casey’s funeral. His final appearance, however, was in 2017 after he and wife Bianca Scott (Lisa Gormley) returned in 2016.
