Milf And Kodi Back In Charge Again

IT'S been a long time since this pair of childhood mates were in charge of directing a team around.

But on Saturday night Anthony Milford and Kodi Nikorima get to relive some teenage memories when they play in the halves for the Broncos against Wigan.

The pair played a lot of football growing up against each other, and then starred in the halves for Queensland age teams.

Now with halfback Ben Hunt suspended for the World Club Series match in England, they assume the numbers six and seven.

"I can't wait," said Milford from England.

"I played a lot of junior footy with Kodi as we grew up together.

"It is pretty exciting for myself and him to be able to play in a halves combination at such a high level."

Nikorima has had an amazing rise since debuting for the Broncos in round two last year.

He has played in an NRL grand final and then started at halfback for the New Zealand Kiwis in end-of-season Tests against England.

That experience, and the assistance of Hunt - who has been a non-playing traveller in England - will be valuable against Wigan.

"I think Kodi has picked up a lot since he got picked in the Kiwis team," said Milford.

"It was a big help for him and he is coming to training with a spring in his step.

"He's prepared to nail this spot and do the best he can.

"Obviously with Ben not being there the game is going to be a little bit different.

"We are going to have to share the load between us two and try and organise.

"But in saying that we have experienced boys in the middle and (hooker) Andrew McCullough will help us out.

"He (Hunt) is like another coach.

"He reads the game better than anyone else so we are learning as much as we can.

"He is putting stuff in our game that we need to take out there against Wigan."

The match will be televised live on 9's Gem channel from 5.40am Queensland time on Sunday morning.
