We desperately need Milf to switch on tomorrow night. Perhaps with Tommy in for a second game he may feel more settled. Milf has gone so far downhill though he's fast becoming that very special player who can turn something into nothing.

It's been reported in the Courier Mail that Anthony Milford is set to dropped for the game against Penrith.


Besieged Broncos playmaker Anthony Milford is set to be dropped for Thursday’s epic encounter against Penrith at Suncorp Stadium.
The 26-year-old trained with the Broncos reserve squad during Brisbane’s Monday training session in an early indication he will be axed from the first grade side for the first time in nine years.

Tom Dearden and Brodie Croft were instead playing as the club’s first choice halves as coach Kevin Waters begins to “put his foot down” to stop the rot at Red Hill.

I'm back on the Kev train. Great move.

It may not help our chances of winning football games, but as far as 2021 is concerned that ship has sailed. Our only concern for this season now is avoiding another spoon and turning this roster on its head. Dropping Milford is step one to doing that.

I very much doubt that this will be for to long, I'd say it will be a confidence boost and whoever is performing out of Dearden and Croft will partner him when he gets back to form.

I don't think it's a when, it's an if.

Souths have a decent team, but I don't see him improving, and even if he does, it just proves he can be a good QCup player

If Milfs gone why persist? The only halves we have will be starting this week, let them stay there all year and see what happens..?

Expecting the worst but hoping for the best...

Happy to see Milford dropped, he needs a wake up call.

Dearden and Croft probably going to be shit, but we are playing Penrith, we are not going to win this game no matter what we do.

Not sure I agree with Niu being dropped though, he had some shockers last week but i think he deserves the right to make it up.

Dearden and Croft will likely combine for zero Try Assists, but honestly, how many more do we see Milford contirbuting?

At last!!!

I do believe we will actually be much better with Croft and Dearden and I'm unconcerned with the kicking. There will be a strict instruction for the kicks and I'm not expecting to see endless bombs. I won't be surprised to see kicking dead in goal or to the corner posts and into touch.

I think your bias against Milford has you blind to what the actual reality will be.....

Anyway.......I can understand him being dropped from the squad.....and hope it achieves "something" for Milford and for the team as a whole...... for the short term.

Long term, I believe we'll be worse off, until a replacement is found who has the same footballing ability that Milford has.....albeit well hidden (currently)

Cheers but I really am aware of my dislike of Milfords rugby league skills and contributions. I did give him credit a few times over the last week, mainly for his improved defence. Milford has more ability than Croft but Croft gives all of what he has and Milford simply doesn't. It doesn't matter what Milford has in the bank, it's how much he spends out on the field. Croft is usually overdrawn at the end of a match!!

I'll take that, a trying player over non performance everytime. Milford has needed to be dropped for a very long time. This should have happened in Seiplods first season. The reality is we will have two guys in the halves who see justice finally being served as it's been either Croft or Dearden dropped everytime up till now. I know these two are going to give this match a red hot go. If KW arranges his forwards a little better we might be in the match for longer than most think.

Croft is a worse player and a worse fit for the team than Milford, but this needed to happen, Milford needed to be dropped. His attitude is just not up to scratch. Even if the Broncos get rolled, Walters needed to take a stand and this will be the first time I've seen him show some balls since he started here.

I'm not sure if it is attitude but just lack of confidence and lack of enthusiasm, his stats suggest he's been trying.
I hope he can get back to enjoying his footy and regain some form, even if it is just to get him a decent contract elsewhere.
