Move for Anthony Milford falls through
Brought into the Dolphins setup as a marquee signing, he failed to cement his spot in the team and was sensationally sent down to reserve grade for the club’s first three games.
Although he played mainly off the interchange in his 11 NRL games this season, Milford managed to score three tries, force five dropouts, and provide five try assists and five line breaks, showing moments of brilliance. However, he would still be on the outs at the club.
This comes after the Leopards signed upcoming halfback Ben McNamara, who spent time at the Sydney Roosters in his junior days. However, the club is reportedly still looking elsewhere for a new halfback to accompany Lachlan Lam in the halves.
Milford, who has played 219 NRL games, will still likely play a role for the Dolphins in 2024, given the club’s relative lack of depth in the halves, as he pushes for a new deal to extend his career into 2025.
He can play in the halves, at fullback or at hooker and has the talent to tear down the opponents’ defence. Only 29, he is a former Samoa and Queensland representative and has played for The Dolphins, Raiders, Broncos and Knights over the course of his career.
