Broncos prop Matt Lodge publicly apologises to his victims for the first time

  Broncos prop Matt Lodge publicly apologises to his victims for the first time Would you accept this apology?Controversial Bronco Matt Lodge has publicly expressed his remorse for the first time since his New York rampage in 2015, telling his victims he couldn't ''be more sorry to them''.

Milford and halves partner Kodi Nikorima's inability to control the match fuelled fears the pair are both running players and they need a No . 7 with the requisite game management skills. "Seven's around game management and if you gave him the seven jersey he might be a better player for the Broncos ."

THE finalisation of Anthony Milford 's future is likely to end Canterbury's hopes of stealing Josh Hoffman from the Broncos . The lack of options could force Griffin to move star recruit Ben Barba to No .6, granting the restless Hoffman a reprieve that will again see him line-up at fullback.

Australian coach Mal Meninga has urged Wayne Bennett to switch misfiring five-eighth Anthony Milford to halfback in an effort to kick-start Brisbane's NRL season.

Heading into Friday's derby against North Queensland, Milford is a man under pressure to deliver on his $1 million pay packet after a lacklustre display in their opening-round thumping at the hands of St George Illawarra.

Milford and halves partner Kodi Nikorima's inability to control the match fuelled fears the pair are both running players and they need a No.7 with the requisite game management skills.

St George Illawarra Dragons' Ben Hunt shows why he's worth $6 million

  St George Illawarra Dragons' Ben Hunt shows why he's worth $6 million Dragons fans have a reason to get excited.St George Illawarra Dragons halfback Ben Hunt showed the doubters why he is worth $6 million in his side's 34-12 victory over the Broncos in round one on Thursday.

It is understood Milford would play halfback at Brisbane next season, with either Ben Hunt or possible Bulldogs recruit Ben Barba to wear the No.6 jumper. Originally published as Homesick Milford eyes Broncos move .

As I thought Milford is trying to weasel his way out of his contract. More money and proximity to family no doubt the factors. I don't mean to be harsh but I am unimpressed with the Go tend to your family, but no free pass to the Broncos .

Such arguments ignore the fact they won 10 of 12 games they played together as a starting halves pair last year.

However Meninga said Milford needed to take greater ownership of his side and would benefit from being moved to halfback.

"I think he needs to be more assertive in the way he plays the game," Meninga told Fox Sports' Queenslanders Only.

"He needs to touch the ball more and he needs to be on the ball more.

"Maybe a change of attitude around the number on his back, maybe take the six off his back and put the seven on it.

"Seven's around game management and if you gave him the seven jersey he might be a better player for the Broncos."

Meninga said Milford risked letting the season slip away from him unless he found a way to take the reins.

"We know it's only round one but you've got to set the scene for the season, you want to set a standard of performance that you're going to give each week," Meninga said.

"Round one you've got to have a crack and I think Milford needs to be more assertive in the way he goes about his business."

Meninga wants New Zealand, England to join Kangaroos in planned pay cuts .
Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga wants New Zealand and England to follow Australia's proposed lead in using Test bonuses as an incentive for emerging nations.Meninga has flagged the idea – and received the nod from senior Australia players – for winning bonuses to be added into an outside pool, which would be then dispersed to other countries relevant to their individual match results and tournament finishing positions.
