Queensland Rugby League boss Peter Betros has dismissed Samoa's threat to pick Anthony Milford for next month's Pacific Test as wishful thinking.
Toa Samoa coach Matt Parish told Fox Sports he will pick Milford for their 7th May test against Tonga in Parramatta if he is overlooked by Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga for their one-off clash with New Zealand next month.
Milford played for Samoa at the 2013 World Cup but switched his allegiances the following year in a bid to be eligible for State of Origin.
The 21-year-old won't play for Queensland this year after being banned for breaking curfew at the Emerging Maroons camp.
He will also be ignored for next month's one-off Test against New Zealand after coach Mal Meninga confirmed he won't be selecting any rookies.
If Milford renews ties with Samoa he won't be eligible to play for Australia until after the 2017 World Cup.
But Betros believed the next representative team Milford would be running around with was Queensland.
"As far as I know he has made himself available to Queensland and Australia so I don't know how he would be available for Samoa," Betros told AAP.
"It will be up to Anthony but if he did that [play for Samoa] he will be excluding future opportunities...I think Samoa are hoping more than anything. I don't think it is a real concern."
