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."

“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.”

Well he wants us to at least avoid the wooden spoon this year, so at least he’s aiming high.

I know the poor bugger has to give the journos something, but gees I’m getting tired of hearing about how important his running game is each and every pre-season and then seeing exactly none of it for the following 26 weeks.

Come out and prove me wrong Anthony, I dare you!

Reasonable chance he will prove you wrong up right up until about Round 14-15 when he inevitably convinces us to re-sign him, and then not again for even a single moment after that until the next renewal, with the only potential exception being the running game he turns on should they bring the McRib back again.

He'll look a thousand times better playing behind a pack that's not thoroughly beaten running one outs and getting picked off easily by a set, rested defensive line, but might well still end up a casualty of fatso's reign of incompetence.

He'd have to have the season of his life, and even then 500k max and one year at a time. He's proven beyond doubt he does not deserve long contracts because he's a lazy ****.
Exactly this.

So what will qualify as a passable season for Milford? There's clearly star playmakers out there that have been in sides that have struggled to make their mark. Mitchell Pearce, Daly Cherry-Evans and Shaun Johnson all come to mind, so does it come down to individual stats? If so, what's the line?

10 tries? 15 Try Assists? 100m+ Average?

He wasn't even this good in 2015 was he?
