Axed Broncos star’s reserve grade bow

Axed Broncos star Anthony Milford made his return to reserve grade but it wasn’t enough as the South Logan Magpies slumped to a 39-22 loss at the hands of the Norths Devils in the Queensland Cup.

Milford is expected to play with the Magpies — a Broncos feeder club — for the next four weeks after his form and confidence were called into question.

Broncos coach Kevin Walters said the move back to reserve grade would help the playmaker rediscover his mojo.

Milford played five-eighth in a side which contained fellow Broncos Cory Paix, Tesi Niu and Karmichael Hunt.

The Devils led 16-10 at halftime after two tries from boom Broncos rookie Brendan Piakura put them in a commanding position.

They then kicked on to finish 39-22 winners.

Hunt, who scored in the first half, will start training with Brisbane on Monday after he offered to go back to the Broncos in an interview with foxsports.com.au and play in the halves alongside Tom Dearden.

“I’d prefer to play in the halves, at six and get my hands on the ball,” Hunt said.

“I understand it’s what is best for team.

“I’d love to play six. I think it just suits my game. I can use my vision and creativity and passing skills and kicking.”
