While still a schoolboy, Milton was called into the England team for the 1904 Home Nations Championship, aged just 18. He played in all three Tests, against Wales, Ireland and Scotland. Milton made another appearance the following year against Scotland and played his fifth Test at Dublin in the 1907 series.He also played for invitational tourists the Barbarians during his time in Britain.
