St George Illawarra Dragons centre Taane Milne is hopeful of a more positive Auckland Nines campaign after being named in the Dragons' 18-man squad.

Milne discussed his Nines debut two years ago and how it unfortunately ended early due to a broken hand. 

Milne also spoke of his excitement to be back playing footy after a difficult pre-season conditioning period.
