So we drafted a confidence player to be coached by Ken Hinkley who will blame the players for losses when statistics have shown their effort is not really the problem?
He's not a confidence player. He's a player that hasn't had the opportunity to build confidence during the past couple of years.

If he had played more games last year, when he came into this year he'd be feeling like he belonged at the level and demanding the ball more. That's why I want him to play early in front of someone like Ebert or Motlop, who have already had their chance. I want to see what he can do. The other two can come in if and when Bergman's form dips.

Wonder if he will get rid of those luscious blonde locks. Sam Hayes, Chook Palmer, Frampton, ?Ladhams, Kane Mitchell, Todd Marshall all had a cut when they came over

Out of all the lads to start today, Miles has the best upper body development... he is going to be a big boy after a preseason or 2 in the gym!
Yeh thought the same from the photo in the Advertiser. Decent unit, especially considering he's only just turned 18.

The thing that stood out to me the most in miles highlites package were those 2 run down tackles. In a modern game where a number of 'superstars' are complete one way down hill skiers it was refreshing to see someone use his athletic abilities to also hunt, chase and force pressure mixed with beautiful tackling technique. Richmond won 2 flags off the back of a gameplan that priorities these simple non-negotiables.

Was watching some of the better half back flankers over round one, went back and rewatched some of his highlights and been thinking that he will be our hbf in time.

His aerial marking, loves to float in.

Very good tackler

Wins the ball on the ground

Long kick

Could be our Sicily.

I would earmark him for that role. Whether he starts elsewhere or not I don’t know but I think he would be a perfect addition to Dbj and burton back there. Like Dbj he can push up the wings from the back flank anyway and give us a good user there.
