After a tentative start in the Brisbane No.6 jersey, Anthony Milford proved to be worth the reported $900,000 per season the Broncos shelled out to prise the will-o-the-wisp playmaker away from Canberra.
Milford, in his third NRL season, played a key role in the Broncos’ resurgence, striking up an outstanding halves combination with Ben Hunt. One of the most elusive, electrifying ball-runners in the code, the 21-year-old scored 13 tries and chalked up 14 try assists.
Among his most memorable 2015 display were dazzling two-try, man-of-the-match displays against Gold Coast in Round 5 and South Sydney in Round 25, while he was desperately unlucky not to receive the Clive Churchill Medal after Brisbane’s heartbreaking grand final defeat.
Milford averaged 122.7 metres per game, 37 offloads and a team-high 91 tackle breaks – remarkable tallies for a five-eighth. He led the Broncos with 13 line-breaks.
Sit back and marvel at the diminutive genius’ stunning 2015 highlights package.
