Broncos coach Kevin Walters said the move back to reserve grade would help the playmaker rediscover his mojo.
Milford played five-eighth in a side which contained fellow Broncos Cory Paix, Tesi Niu and Karmichael Hunt.
The Devils led 16-10 at halftime after two tries from boom Broncos rookie Brendan Piakura put them in a commanding position.
They then kicked on to finish 39-22 winners.
Hunt, who scored in the first half, will start training with Brisbane on Monday after he offered to go back to the Broncos in an interview with foxsports.com.au and play in the halves alongside Tom Dearden.

“I’d prefer to play in the halves, at six and get my hands on the ball,” Hunt said.
“I understand it’s what is best for team.
“I’d love to play six. I think it just suits my game. I can use my vision and creativity and passing skills and kicking.”

The actor who played Jesus in the 2004 film Passion of the Christ has sparked outrage after promoting a QAnon conspiracy theory that suggests thousands of children are being murdered in order to have their adrenal glands harvested for the compound adrenochrome.
Jim Caviezel appeared at a right-wing convention called Clay Clark’s Health and Freedom Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The conference looked to be for attendees to complain about COVID restrictions while claiming that it was part of overall government overreach in forcing people to obey by the restrictions.
But the conference suddenly took a turn during a seminar on the issue of child trafficking when Caviezel, who was promoting his forthcoming film about the subject, Sound of Freedom.
Caviezel portrays Timothy Ballard, a former special agent for the Department of Homeland Security whose group, The Nazarene Fund, works to ‘liberate the captive, to free the enslaved, and to rescue, rebuild and restore the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious and ethnic minorities wherever and whenever they are in need.’
Caviezel recounted a conspiracy theory suggesting that elites were drinking the blood of the children in order to benefit from the ‘rejuvenating’ chemical.
‘They’re pulling kids out of the darkest recesses of hell right now, in dumps and all kinds of places. The adrenochrome-ing of children, look …’ Caviezel said.
Caviezel was then asked to explain further by the MC about adrenochrome and gave more details on what he had heard people were doing to children to retrieve the chemical, but had never actually witnessed it first hand.
‘Essentially, you have adrenaline in your body,’ Caviezel explained. ‘And when you are scared, you produce adrenaline. If you’re an athlete, you get in the fourth quarter, you have adrenaline that comes out of you. If a child knows he’s going to die, his body will secrete this adrenaline. And they have a lot of terms that they use that he takes me through, but it’s the worst horror I’ve ever seen. The screaming alone, even if I never, ever, ever saw it, it’s beyond — and these people that do it, umm, there will be no mercy for them.’
The conspiracy theory, a cornerstone of QAnon dogma, holds that a network of politicians and celebrities are torturing and murdering thousands of children to harvest their adrenal glands for compound adrenochrome, which they can then use as an elixir of life as well as a recreational drug.
QAnon believers think that adrenochrome halts and even reverses the aging process.
Caviezel’s comments drew outrage online.
‘This makes me sad. He was such a good actor. I think instead of acknowledging that he’s stupid and insane, I’ll just tell myself he is a fading actor in need of financial assistance who accepted money to pretend he’s lost his mind,’ wrote one Twitter user.
‘Why hasn’t the “adrenochroming of children” resulted in a rash of missing children reports or panic at hospital maternity wards? I’m so confused… also, “adrenochroming” isn’t a real word. How do we make the qrazy stop?’ added another.
‘Do they imply in the film that American elites are harvesting the blood of these children so they can appear youthful ? Because we know human trafficking is a huge problem in the world, but it’s ludicrous to think elites and celebrities are harvesting the blood of these victims.’ asked Matty online.
‘I love how they always know exactly what horrible atrocities other people are doing. I’ve yet to see any evidence of those accusations…anywhere,’ wrote Philippe.
‘Those empty seats behind him are a metaphor for his bleak and lonely ride down the rabbit hole. This is not a mentally sound person. If you believe absurdities, you can commit atrocities,’ tweeted Alex Cole.
The conference which featured a host of far right speakers across the weekend including Michael Flynn, Lin Wood, Sidney Powell and the My Pillow Guy, Mike Lindell is set to end on Saturday night with an event titled ‘It’s Time to Burn Those Masks,’ during which attendees will burn face masks.
The coronavirus pandemic still kills thousands of Americans each week and is seeing a new surge in cases in the U.S. with many states requiring masks to be worn both indoors and outdoors in an even to curb the spread of the disease.

Collingwood defender Mark Keane is facing a response from AFL match review officer Michael Christian for a bizarre tripping attack on West Coast’s Josh Kennedy.
The Irishman’s reflexive response to stick out his right boot to take the legs out from under Kennedy was spotted by Fox Footy Cameras during West Coast’s win over the Magpies on Friday night.
The vision from behind the goals shows Keane — given one of the hardest jobs in footy to defend that key forward — and Kennedy jostling for position inside the Eagles’ forward fifty.
Sticking to Kennedy like a second-hand suit, Keane made sure Kennedy wasn’t getting away as he turned to double back towards the goals.
Keane’s leg sweep left Kennedy flat on the grass and far from impressed.
Kennedy has suffered a series of ankle injuries in recent years, but he had no issues playing out the game on Friday.

The kick was assessed by the Fox Footy panel at half time.
Footy great Garry Lyon said Keane needs to learn to get the trip reflex out of his game after picking up the naughty habit in Gaelic football.
“It’s a little Irish thing. You know, you’ve been there,” Lyon told Jonathan Brown.
“It’s a little ankle tap every now and again. He’ll get this out of his game. It doesn’t look great.”
Herald Sun reporter Jon Ralph speculated Keane is likely to be fined over the incident, but will avoid a one-game suspension, assuming the contact is assessed to be low impact.

Peaky Blinders and Harry Potter star Helen McCrory, a legend of the stage and screen, has died aged 52 after a secret ‘heroic battle’ with cancer, her husband Damian Lewis today revealed.
The ‘beautiful and mighty’ actress, who played Polly Gray in hit BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders and Narcissa Malfoy in the globally-loved Potter franchise, died ‘peacefully’ at home surrounded by friends and family. The family had not publicly announced the news of her illness.
In a moving tribute on Twitter, Lewis, star of TV series Homeland, said: ‘I’m heartbroken to announce that after a heroic battle with cancer, the beautiful and mighty woman that is Helen McCrory has died peacefully at home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family.
‘She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you.’
McCrory, who was awarded the OBE for services to drama in the 2017 New Years Honours, was best known for playing the matriarch Polly in Peaky Blinders and Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.
Her other movie roles included playing MP Clair Dowar in Skyfall and Cherie Blair in The Queen and The Special Relationship. On television, she appeared in Doctor Who, Inside No 9 and His Dark Materials, and last year appeared in the Hugh Laurie drama Roadkill on the BBC and ITV’s Quiz.
She also had an accomplished stage career, winning plaudits for National Theatre roles in productions of Medea and Terence Rattigan’s The Deep Blue Sea. McCrory was also was nominated for an Olivier for her role as Rosalind in As You Like It in at London’s Wyndham’s theatre in 2006.
McCrory and Lewis married in 2007 after falling in love when they were both cast in the play Five Gold Rings at the off-West End Almeida Theatre back in 2003. Together they share a daughter Manon, 14, and son Gulliver, 13.
The couple were last seen during an appearance on Good Morning Britain last month, where they appeared to speak about their charity work for the Prince’s Trust and the Prince’s Trust Awards.
McCrory and Lewis led fundraising efforts to provide hot meals for NHS staff during the pandemic. Their work led to almost £1million in donations to the Feed NHS scheme, and partnerships with chains including Leon and Wasabi.
There has been an outpouring of grief following news of McCrory’s death. Actor Jim Howick, who worked with McCrory and her husband on the 2015 comedy film Bill, tweeted: ‘This is so shocking and sad. Helen along with Damien were both terrific fun on Bill.
‘She was so generous with her time and her performance. I urge everyone to listen to her Desert Island Disks. What a talent we have lost.’
Actor Michael Sheen, who worked with McCrory in ITV drama Quiz, paid tribute to the late actress.
He tweeted: ‘So funny, so passionate, so smart and one of the greatest actors of our time. From the first moment I met her when we were just kids it was obvious she was very special.
‘It was an honour to work with her and know her. Much love to Damian and her family. Heartbreaking.’
Piers Wenger, BBC director of drama, paid tribute to McCrory, who starred in the broadcaster’s Peaky Blinders.
‘Helen was one of the finest actresses this country will ever see,’ he said. ‘From Potter to Peaky, from Blair to Bond, Helen’s fearlessness made every part she played unique and unmissable.
‘Her body of work speaks of her extraordinary talent, what it doesn’t speak of is her kindness, intelligence and sense of fun. This is too soon, too cruel. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this incredibly sad time.’
Rev Richard Coles was among those paying tribute. He wrote on Twitter: ‘Very sorry to hear of the death of Helen McCrory, such a brilliant actor; heartfelt condolences to Damian Lewis, their children, and all who loved her.’
Actor and director Noel Clarke said: ‘RIP #HelenMcCrory you were the best and always lovely to me. It was a pleasure to work with you. Love ya. Blessings to Damian and the family.’

That, however, was as good as it got for the visitors as the loss of Howe and De Goey took effect and the Eagles clicked into gear.
The West Australians’ pace and power ensured they got on top and their pressure in forward areas meant that Collingwood were denied any easy possessions and could not play out from the back.
Collingwood will take some solace from the performance of some of their youngsters. Beau McCreery kicked two goals in his third AFL game, while to their credit Buckley’s men never gave up and when Darcy Cameron kicked a goal with nine minutes remaining the black and white faithful dared to dream, given that the gap had shrunk to 22 points.
The Eagles found their mojo in the second quarter and Darling in particular stood up when his team needed him, kicking four goals. His size and power proved too much for the Collingwood backline, particularly when Howe limped off, helped to the rooms by two trainers. When things were getting tighter in the final term as the Pies got within 21 points Darling settled nerves with his fifth goal.
Allen was another to shine in the second period, adding to his first quarter strike with two goals, including one on the stroke of the siren which put the Eagles 12 points up at the long break. He ended up with five goals, a career high.

The naysayers will say differently but the Broncos have picked up an ace in the pack in Karmichael Hunt, according to his former rugby teammates.
When Hunt found himself in trouble with the law for the second time during his troubled Reds career, he was frozen out of the Super Rugby side by his former Broncos teammate Brad Thorn.
Thorn, in his first season as head coach, made a statement and cast off high profile trio Hunt, Quade Cooper and, later, James Slipper.
Tellingly, all three Test players found new homes and Slipper, who twice tested positive for cocaine but wasn’t charged, remains a strong part of the Wallabies’ leadership group.

Broncos press conference
Hunt was handed a lifeline at the Waratahs by former All Black Daryl Gibson.
He moved to the southern highlands, swore off the drink and continued his studies remotely. Next month, he will complete his psychology degree, and wants to specialise in sports psychology, a qualification he plans to use to help athletes from all sports.
In his first season at the Waratahs in 2019 he was awarded the side’s best back.
He remained one of their best in 2020, but with the cash-strapped sport organisation in a world of pain and in turmoil around their staff and administration off the field they didn’t offer the dual international another contract.
The decision shocked the playing group, while then head coach Rob Penney wanted to keep Hunt on the books but was told he wouldn’t have the money.
In the hours after news broke that the 34-year-old was heading back to Red Hill on Thursday there was an explosion of former players reacting on social media.

Former teammate Nick Phipps, who played alongside Hunt for the Wallabies and in 2019 at the Waratahs, said the code-hopper was influential in his short-stint at the franchise.
“Mate, boys couldn’t love him more,” Phipps told foxsports.com.au.
“Shaped a lot of boys’ careers over his few years. Super reliable, unbelievable player too. Look how many blokes are getting around him on social (and I hate using that as a measure). Super humble, had time for everyone.
“People can talk crap about his naughty years all they want but we only ever saw a bloke who swore off the drink.”
On the other end of the spectrum there’s 21-year-old Will Harrison, who said Hunt “still had it”.
“Massive fan mate,” the Junior Wallabies playmaker said.
“Such a mentor but also a champion bloke.”
Brandy walks back on Milford criticism
Former Waratahs assistant coach Simon Cron, who was headhunted by All Blacks World Cup-winning coach Steve Hansen to join him in Japan in 2020, said the Broncos will benefit from his experience.
“I found Karmichael to be the consummate professional who always led by example with his approach to training and games,” Cron said.
“He’s bloody tough and you can see that by how he dictates the contact zone, both in defence and attack.
“He will add a lot of experiences and leadership to the Broncos I’m sure. Great human and tight family man.”
Hunt might be in the twilight of his career but the dual-international was admired, for his positive influence off the field particularly during his two-years at the Waratahs as much as his on-field deeds, during his chequered six-year stint in Australian rugby.

Years later, Carey already has a website, where merchandise — t-shirts, tote bags, aprons, and stickers — related to the governor bid are available to purchase.
“I’m getting ready to take another shot at the California Gubernatorial Seat!! Political Strategy is in the works… Any and all support to fight the big political parties will help save our state!” Carey says on her website. “Finally a politician you want to be screwed by!!!”

A second member of the Heal family is hoping to make it big in the US.
Shyla Heal, the teenage daughter of Australian basketball legend Shane Heal, is heading to the WNBA after Chicago Sky selected her with pick No. 8 in Friday’s (AEST) draft.

Shane played in the NBA with Minnesota and San Antonio and was by Shyla’s side at The Star in Sydney on Friday morning when the announcement came through she was off to the Windy City.
She joins Opals icons Liz Cambage and Lauren Jackson as the only Aussies to go top-10 in the WNBA draft and will ply her trade Stateside in the most competitive league in the world.
Shyla enjoyed a stellar 2020 season Down Under playing for the Townsville Fire, winning the Youth Player of the Year award to cement her status as one of Australia’s brightest up-and-coming basketball talents.
Her hot streak put the 19-year-old on the radar for national selection ahead of this year’s Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 World Cup, and earned her a spot in the All-WNBL Second Team.
Townsville coach Sandy Brondello said late last year: “She is going to be an Opal; it is just a matter of when.
“She has got really good skills and I think she has improved in her playmaking ability.
“Not just being a scorer, but it is also about being a creator and distributor.
“She is on the up and she is only going to get better and better.”
Heal has long been touted for big things after debuting in the WNBL at just 14 and finished last season among the league’s top five scorers, averaging 25.3 points and 7.3 assists per game.
Heal was documenting her day on social media as the WNBA Draft took place, and looked excited as she waited with her family for her name to be called out.

The L.A. County Coroner’s office has revealed TikTok and Vine star Adam Perkins died on Sunday April 11 at an L.A. ‘residence’ – but the cause of his death remains unknown.
Adam made his name on Vine with comedy videos and he was best known for one where he appeared in a bathroom mirror, enthusiastically saying: ‘Hi, welcome to Chilli’s’.
His death was announced by his twin brother Patrick on social media. Patrick said he did not want to disclose how his brother had died.
The pair grew up in California. Their father Lars is a tech entrepreneur who sold photography sharpening software to Google in 2004. Their mother Susan is a British actress.
The family have property on the west coast, in L.A., and in Maine. It’s unclear where his relatives have been living recently, or if he was living alone.
DailyMail.com understands that police were called to the property where Adam died and that the unit that responded was the LAPD’s West L.A. branch, but no more detail has been given.
His family are now mourning his death in part with thoughtful tributes on social media.
Patrick has now released an album that his brother had been working on before his death. Adam studied music at NYU and graduated in 2019.
His loving parents described him and his brother online as the light and pride of their lives.
Lars, his father, is on the NASA Advisory Committee. The family seem to split their time now between Maine and L.A.
After announcing his brother had passed away aged 24, Patrick shared a series of tributes on Instagram and among heartfelt best wishes from fans, he shot down questions about how Adam had died.
‘Think I need to take this opportunity to explain something to you: if the cause of death is not released, there is a reason…
‘There is intention in every part of this. Please respect both of us by not asking that question… not sure how it’s not obvious that I didn’t say for a reason. Everything in this is intentional. Please respect that,’ he said.
Patrick’s messages to fans came before he shared a heartbreaking tribute to his sibling on Wednesday.
To the tune of Joni Mitchell’s 1976 hit Coyote, from his favourite album Hejira, the late online sensation was seen larking around while filming, having his haircut, driving, petting a dog and many more candid moments from their life.
He added a caption on the heartbreaking video reading: ‘Adam Perkins 1997 – forever and ever. I love you my brother. Always.’
The Boston-born star’s twin confirmed the news on Instagram, as he revealed the star died on April 11 but did not disclose any cause of death.
Beneath the touching video, Adam’s fans penned: ‘My heart hurts. What a huge part of my youth your brothers vines were rest in peace…
‘Sending my condolences to you and your family… Life just doesn’t feel real anymore lately, sorry for your loss… One last time as a tribute “Hi welcome to chilli’s!’
As well as having thousands of TikTok followers, Adam was also known for an iconic clip on the social media site Vine which saw him parody an advert for the American restaurant chain Chili’s.
