With his father's apparent ailing health or homesickness. It'll make the Raiders look bad if they don't release him on compassionate grounds especially if his father unfortunately passes away whilst his in Canberra. But I can understand the Raiders stance on this. To make it fair here's what I'm proposing - Canberra release him to the Bronco's but with a few proviso's made by them and the NRL. 1) During the length of his Canberra contract up until the end of 2014 - the Broncos aren't allowed to field Milford against them even in final's - Wigan has applied something similar with Gareth Hock they won't allow him to play against them. Hock's current club Widnes can't select him against them. 2) Bronco's give the Raiders 2 U20's players This way both parties win.
