Brisbane Broncos coach Anthony Seibold has confirmed the enigmatic Anthony Milford will play five-eigth in season 2020.
“It was a challenging year for Milf. We had a number of halves partners for him and tried something different by putting him at fullback,” Seibold told NRL.com.
“One of the reasons why I wanted him to back in the number six jersey is that we’ve got genuine organisers there in Brodie Croft and Tom Dearden. Both those young guys can get a team around the park. Milf played his best games last year in my opinion against the Roosters, Warriors and Manly when Tommy Dearden was his halfback partner, and Tommy is an organiser.
“It will take pressure off Milf when he doesn’t have to get us around the park. I think he is happy to be happy back in the six and just playing his natural game which is eyes up and if he sees something, taking it. We play principle based footy, not structured.
“I want Milly to free up. He’s got himself in good shape and is enjoying the footy part of the pre-season.”
