Milford said the decision to leave the club where he developed his game and made his NRL debut was the toughest of his career so far and thanked everyone involved in the Raiders organisation for the opportunities they have given him and the patience they have shown.
“This was a very tough decision for me and my family and I want to thank everyone at the Raiders for everything they have done for me,” Milford said.
“I’ve been with the club since I was awarded a scholarship at the age of 13. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the Raiders and I will never forget the support they’ve given me.
“I’m 100 per cent committed to the Raiders for the rest of the season and I look forward to helping the team play well for the rest of the year.”
Milford will honour the final year of his current deal with the Raiders and remain with the club until the end of the 2014 season.
