North Melbourne's National Recruiting Manager Mark Finnigan believes Bergman’s skillset can fill a need on North’s list.

"He will provide a lot of drive with his run and kick, filling a position type we need for the long term," Finnigan said.

"Miller showed his talent and versatility in the NAB league this season also playing forward, kicking three goals in one quarter.

"Like Josh Goater, he has been a Roos supporter all his life with his Dad, Shannon, being drafted by the club in 1989.

"We are really excited with what Miller can bring once in an elite program."

For some reason I really like this pick, have admired how his brother has slotted in at Port and was always interested to see where he went.

Reading that he put on 6-7 kilos in a non professional environment for a skinny kid at 17-18 is quite impressive and bodes well for future development, especially with an AFL environment, nutrition and strength program.

Probably a needs based pick with his decision making, line breaking and strong kicking. If he can get to 75kg and is playing well I could see a debut late next year off a half back flank If we have injuries.

Are you just guessing they’re related?

Yes . Was getting pushed off the ball rushing kicks with his lean physique…
Has that body that will never put on weight
I’ll back in the blokes that are paid to watch these kids more then a few times like punters on here. Poor form writing off an 18yo before he’s stepped in the doors.

Have you got some in depth knowledge about all of this RH? I’m presuming you’re not just shooting your mouth off for the hell of it.

If i'm not first aboard, i'm right up the front of the Bergman bus, lol at those reading his old bio and assuming 65kg is correct, i heard him interviewed by Dwayne last week, and as well as declaring his love of Nth, said he realised he had to put on some size and engaged a personal trainer and a dietician, and had already gained about 7kg, took most of the kick in's for his team and averaged a goal a game, kicking is a big plus, welcome to Nth Miller.
