A move is looking increasingly likely for Super League target Anthony Milford according to reports.
The stand-off has had a turbulent time since joining the Dolphins after playing in the 2022 World Cup Final for Samoa.
He was told in September he could leave resulting in interest from Leigh Leopards in Super League as well as links to Catalans Dragons, Hull FC and others.
In the end, the move to Leigh fell through and they signed Matt Moylan instead. However, Milford is still set to receive a lack of game time in 2024 and a move away looks likely.
The question is: could he be tempted over to Super League now with the likes of Salford Red Devils and Warrington Wolves still having quota spots?
Super League target set for move after new incident
A recent incident could have made a move to Super League all the more likely with Zero Tackle reporting that an injury at training could signal the end of his time with the Dolphins.
Ted Roker, a journalist from 10 News First Queensland, reported that Milford had left the club’s training session due to an injury. At the same time, Jake Averillo, a recruit, and Jesse Bromwich, a veteran, didn’t train with the core group of players.
Milford had a poor attitude last season which made it difficult for him to cement a position in The Dolphins team. This injury could be the final straw with the club as he is already playing second-fiddle to Isaiya Katoa and Sean O’Sullivan. Despite playing mainly off the interchange in his 11 NRL games this season, Milford still managed to score three tries, force five dropouts, and provide five try assists and five line breaks, showing moments of brilliance.
The club has not confirmed the injury yet, and it is unknown how serious the leg injury is or how long he will be out for.
