The South Sydney Rabbitohs respect and support the NRL’s decision to not register a contract for Anthony Milford at this stage.
The Rabbitohs will await the outcome of the legal proceedings and the NRL’s final determination before commenting further.
Earlier the NRL released this statement...
The National Rugby League (NRL) has advised player Anthony Milford and the South Sydney Rabbitohs that it will not consider registering a contract for the player until criminal proceedings against Milford have been completed.
Given the severity of the allegations, particularly that two charges allege violence against women, the NRL will not consider an application for registration until the court process is complete.
Milford was arrested on 20 September 2021 and charged with 3 counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and 1 count of wilful damage involving a vehicle.
