Milford commences training with the Knights

The nib Newcastle Knights will today welcome playmaker Anthony Milford to their training group after the former Queensland State of Origin player was granted conditional registration to train with the club by the National Rugby League.

The Knights acknowledge and support the stipulations placed on the registration of Milford’s contract by the NRL as outlined in a statement made by the governing body on Easter Saturday.

On Monday 11 April, Milford had three charges of assault against him dismissed in a Brisbane court. He also pled guilty to one count of Public Nuisance and one count of Wilful Damage, for which he was fined but had no conviction recorded.

The Club last week registered a contract for Milford for the remainder of the 2022 Telstra Premiership season with the NRL.

It will provide support to Milford in completing the series of mandatory personal development and tailored rehabilitation programs and ongoing assessments required of him in order for the NRL to approve his return to play.

The NRL has stated that Milford will not be permitted to play NRL before Round 11 of the 2022 season.

Until such time as he is cleared to play NRL by the governing body, Milford will only be permitted to train with the Knights and will not take part in any off-field club activities including community or media appearances.

The 27-year-old has 193 games of NRL experience, including 42 games with the Canberra Raiders, where he debuted in Round 5 of 2013, followed by six seasons and 151 appearances for the Brisbane Broncos. He has also played seven Test matches for Samoa and two State of Origin games for Queensland.

The Newcastle Knights welcome Anthony to the Club and look forward to pulling on the red and blue jersey once he is available for selection.
