Form five-eighth Anthony Milford has confirmed he is staying a Bronco in 2021.
“The reason I stayed … I love this club,” said Milford. “If we can keep this current squad together, I believe we can definitely give the comp a good shake and definitely have a red-hot crack at lifting the trophy at the end of the year.
“As a person, I work best when everything is simple. I have a little one due soon and I didn’t want to spend the rest of the year worrying about my future.
“When I try and complicate things, and a lot of stuff is running through my head, I’m not at my best then. My future is not on my mind now.
“It’s been one of my goals since I got to the Broncos (in 2015) to win a premiership. I’ve always wanted to win one for the city and the Broncos fans.
“Being born in Ipswich and raised in Brisbane, it’s all I have wanted to do.”
Milford said the hugely-popular TV documentary on basketball legend Michael Jordan – The Last Dance – was serving as motivation for him as the Broncos return from isolation.
“All the Broncos boys have been watching the Jordan doco. It’s awesome,” Milford told The Sunday Mail.
“We all come in on Tuesday morning and talk about it.
“It’s self-explanatory why he was the best athlete in the world. Watching it, Jordan worked hard and was always so competitive. There’s definitely parts in the documentary that I have taken and want to bring to my game.
“To see the footage of him winning his first title, crying as he held the trophy … that really made a point with me. I still feel I owe the Broncos a lot.”
