Anthony Milford’s NRL return has been put on ice with the governing body set to launch an investigation into his alleged fight outside a Brisbane nightclub — despite three assault charges against the star playmaker being dropped.

Milford appeared in Brisbane court on Monday over the September incident.

The three charges of assault were discontinued, however the 27-year-old plead guilty to public nuisance and wilful damage. He was ordered to pay close to $2400 for a car window he damaged with a bin and was put on a two-year good behaviour bond.

However, the NRL will now investigate the matter further after obtaining the CCTV footage from the night in question, according to The Sydney Morning Herald’s Michael Chammas.

“I spoke to the NRL and they’re going to launch their own investigation,” Chammas said on Channel 9’s 100% Footy.

“Yes the charges were dropped, but the NRL has the CCTV footage from that night in Fortitude Valley last September.

“They’re going to look into that. To assume he will get a free ride back into the NRL is probably off the mark.”

Milford had signed a one-year deal with the Rabbitohs prior to the incident, but the contract was never registered due to the assault charges.

He’s been linked to the Knights more recently, but no deal will be locked in until the NRL clear him.

“If the talk is right that Newcastle will come for him, the NRL will need to do its due diligence and investigate the matter,” Chammas said.

“Because they’ve seen that footage, they don’t think they’re just going to green light straight through without any concerns.

“It’s probably unlikely he will end up in South Sydney. They weren’t too impressed with the fact that his representative threatened to take legal action if they didn’t pay him out in full.

“Unfortunately it didn’t end too well with South Sydney.”
