$1m Milford likely played last game for Broncos

There are fears Anthony Milford may have played his last game for the Brisbane Broncos after the playmaker underwent knee surgery.

Milford has struggled to keep his spot in the side this season, with Broncos coach Kevin Walters currently favouring Tyson Gamble and Albert Kelly in the halves.

The 26-year-old’s $1 million per season contract officially expires at the end of this season and it’s likely the out of favour playmaker won’t feature again this season.

Nine News rugby league reporter Mark Gottlieb revealed Milford recently underwent surgery on a knee injury, which will keep him out for at least a month.

The Broncos will welcome veteran South Sydney halfback Adam Reynolds to the side next season, and it’s expected the club will continue to look at the open market before making a call on whether to bring Milford back next season.

Milford to date has played 147 games for the Broncos after joining the club from Canberra back in 2015.

Recently, rugby league great Andrew Johns questioned Milford’s desire to continue his NRL career when the playmaker was dropped for the second time this season last month.

“I’ve watched him closely from above the last couple of weeks, there’s just no urgency to get into play from Anthony,” Johns told Wide World of Sports’ Freddy and the Eighth at the time.

“So the question’s got to be, does Anthony still want to play?”
