State of Origin Rep

Anthony Milford is asked about the multi-million dollar lease on his motor skills that comes up for renewal at the end of this season:
"I want to stay here. That (his contract) is out of my control ... what is in my control is the way I perform on a week-to-week basis. It is a pretty big year for myself. My manager has a job to do but it’s up to me to perform."
Mouths to feed
“I am ready for the challenge that comes ahead and whatever comes my way I will take it with two hands. I need to be better everywhere, I have to improve my defence and make sure I’m in the game in attack."
“‘Kevvie’ (coach Walters) knows I’m on my game when I’m running the ball. I need to bring that consistently in games ... I’ll see how I go.”
“Being on the sidelines didn’t help (last year). My hamstring was playing on my mind a little bit. We have a younger group so we have to make sure we improve on last year and not end up with the wooden-spoon again. A big part of that is on my shoulders. I have been trying to focus a lot on myself this pre-season to make sure I am in the best physical shape I can be."
“Kevvie brings back the fundamentals of being a half. He is working hard with the halves and making sure we are getting our lines right and making the right calls. It’s little basic stuff I need to improve in my game. I have passed all the tests on my hand to be passed fit for round one. I haven’t played since the Dragons (in August) last year so I can’t wait to get back out there again.”
