Richmond midfielder Anthony Miles has been rewarded for a standout season after the Tigers handed the ball-magnet with a new two-year contract.
Miles was selected by Richmond at pick 27 in the rookie draft late last year after being delisted by Greater Western Sydney, where he spent two seasons.
The 22-year-old has been a revelation for the Tigers since being upgraded to the senior list and has averaged 24 disposals and 11 contested possessions and has played a starring role in the Tigers’ late-season resurgence.
Miles told the club’s website he was delighted to sign on at Punt Road.
“To come off the rookie list this year and play a few games lately, and to be offered a two-year extension, it’s a dream come true, really,” said Miles.
“I was hopeful (of being re-signed), but I did think I’d have to wait until the end of the year.
“Even at the start of the year, I was just hoping to be a rookie for another year…to extend my rookie contract.
“So, to be offered a two-year deal, is awesome.”
Richmond currently sit ninth on the AFL ladder and will take on St Kilda on Sunday in what is a must-win clash for their finals aspirations.
