-NEWS- Kevvie on Milford's contract renewal: right now you'd have to say "no"

HScreenshot_2021-04-07 The Courier Mail Breaking News Headlines for Brisbane and Queensland Co...jpg

Kevin Walters is asked whether Anthony Milford has earned a new contract:

“That’s a work in progress, right now you’d have to say no."

“We need to see ‘Milf’ playing better but I’m extremely confident we can get the best out of Anthony Milford. We’re four weeks into a 25-round competition plus finals. We’re in no hurry and Anthony’s in no hurry. As long as we keep building and getting better, that’s all I’m concerned with. It’s about taking small steps. Everything we’re doing is based around that. It’s all small-picture and trying to get better each week."

"Milf has played some good football this year at stages. We are backing him all the way. He is under a lot of pressure, as is everyone in a Broncos jersey at the moment. It’s about taking little steps at a time to improve and I feel Anthony is certainly having a crack. That’s what I like about him. If and when I believe that stops happening then things will change.”

“I don’t feel there’s any uncertainty around our halves. We’ve got two good halfbacks vying for a position. There is great competition there between them and that’s what’s good about the club. Both players have got areas in their games they are working on and moving forward to get better at."

“The plan is to get those two playing well and improve on what they’ve been building on. I’ve seen some great signs there and some areas we need to be better. The players are aware of that. We’ve had good conversations this week around the three of them (Milford included) and the role they need to play in the side. The competition is about trying to get better each week. I expect those guys to be better.”

“We’re really keen to hang on to Kotoni Staggs, we believe he has a bright future at the Broncos regardless of what position he plays for us. I’m sure he can play back-row, halves and centre. He can play several positions. Right now our major focus is to retain the services of Kotoni and then we will place him somewhere in those positions over the next 12 months.”

“We’re always in the market. You guys (media) should know that. Every club is on the lookout if players become available. We will be looking, but right now we’re trying to re-sign four or five of our junior players. That’s where our major focus has been, trying to secure those guys. There’s a big, bad world out there in the player market and my job is to coach the side. We’ve got other people in our organisation to look after those areas.”

The thing that concerns me about this is how long will it take for the penny to drop before kevvie realises milf is not going to earn a new contract.
We all know he is done but kevvie still appears to be hanging on for some reason.
He would be better off not saying anything at the moment.

i strongly believe kevie already knows what we all do but he just cannot come out and say it so blatantly.

i mean what he said already is more or less confirms milford will not be here next year.

but like he said he will keep giving him a crack as long as it looks likes hes putting in and trying to improve his game

im not sure what more a coach can do with a player earning over 1million a season whose in such bad form as milf.

Do ya mean Pete Nolan, Kevvie? **** me we are in some serious trouble then if he is the person "in our organisation to look after these areas"! You may as well walk over to Caxton Street and pull some drunk off their bar stool and let them do the job. There wouldn't be any difference in the end result.

That’s what the titans did with Gordie and mal and their recruitment is going great. I second your idea faithy.

I'd argue the result would be better by said random drunk.

Didn't the Titans find Mal creeping around the toilet block?

So the cap will be dedicated to resigning 4-5 young guys who won the spoon to upgraded contracts they don't deserve.
And not even interested in signing a marquee halfback.
My head cannot process this..say what, Kevvie?


"....he was adamant the club could build its future around existing playing talent and was not interested in chasing veteran Rabbitohs halfback Adam Reynolds for next season..."

Since we can't blame Bennett for the Boyd/Macca contracts, no one can blame kevvie for these ...

Although if we don't re-sign these guys BHQ will blow up whinging about us losing them

Yes we can blame him, he stuck by them and they held our side back from being a top 6 team. They just stopped trying when Bennett and the true talent and leaders left.

**** what BHQ wants, Kevvie needs established talent yesterday, cause I definitely cannot see how Piakura, Coates, Dearden or Staggs single handedly will turn the clubs fortunes around in the next 2 years.
