What Recruiting and List Manager Graham Wright said: "He’s the son of Geoff Miles, the ex-Collingwood and West Coast Eagles player. He’s 180cm tall, 70kg and really quick. He plays forward and back, has great natural movement and has really good endurance.

"He won the Geelong Falcons best and fairest this year. We think he’s got the potential to play back and forward and even to play a tagging role at times.

"We’re really excited to get him where we did and I think he’ll be a great player for the future for us."
