Youth and Varsity Cup rugby
Milasinovich was born in Johannesburg, where he attended St John's College. He didn't earn any provincial call-ups at schoolboy level, but made two appearances for the Kempton Park-based Falcons' Under-19 team during the 2011 Under-19 Provincial Championship, scoring a try in their 29–21 victory over Boland U19.
It wasn't until 2015 that he next featured in a nationwide competition, when he played for the University of Johannesburg in the Varsity Cup competition. He started all seven of their matches in the loosehead prop position, with UJ winning three of those matches, failing to qualify for the semi-finals.
After the 2015 Varsity Cup, Milasinovich moved to England to join the academy of English Premiership side Worcester Warriors. He had a short spell at Championship side Yorkshire Carnegie, making two appearances for the Leeds-based side at the start of the 2015–16 season.
He made his debut for Worcester Warriors in their European Rugby Challenge Cup, coming on as a replacement in their opening match in Pool 4 of the competition against French side La Rochelle. He started their next match against Italian side Zebre, eventually playing in five of their six matches as Worcester Warriors finished bottom of the Pool 4 log to be eliminated from the competition. He made his Premiership debut on 5 December 2015, playing off the bench in a 20–29 defeat to Leicester Tigers. He made three further substitute appearances over the course of the season as the Worcester Warriors finished in tenth position. In his final match against Exeter Chiefs, Milasinovich suffered an achilles tendon rupture, ruling him out of injury for several months. Despite this injury, Milasinovich was promoted to the senior squad prior to the 2016–17 season.
