"His Strength As A Rugby League Player Has Been Taken Away From Him" Triple M

Triple M's Gorden Tallis believes Anthony Milford's career is being hampered by playing five-eighth, instead of his natural fullback position. 

Talking on Triple M Sunday NRL, Tallis says Milford hasn't grasped the role of five-eighth since joining the Broncos. 

"I feel really sorry for Anthony Milford, he's been thrown into the five-eighth role and he hasn't really grasped it," Tallis said.  

"He's a natural ball-runner and his position is fullback."

"His game management is not up there with someone like a Morgan, Thurston or Cooper Cronk and that's his job at Brisbane."  

"We're not going to look at Anthony Milford's career and go 'wow what a player,' that he could be because he doesn't have that freedom and range," he said.  

"His strength as a rugby league player has been taken away from him." 

Triple M and Fox Sports' Paul Kent agreed with Gordie's point of view saying Milford hasn't reached the potential he was touted to achieve. 

"I think since going to Brisbane, while we see flashes of brilliance we all know he's got, I don't think we see it anywhere near as often as what we saw when he was at Canberra," Kenty said. 

Although, Gordie has a simple solution to improve Milford's game. 

"If I was coaching that organisation, Daruis (Boyd) would go into the six and Milford to one," he said.
