Anthony Miles Biography

Thursday, 24 September 2020
Anthony Miles retires from AFL football after 88 games played throughout his 10-year career as a Tiger and Sun.

"I probably haven't had your typical 10-year career, but I am extremely grateful for the opportunities that my journey has afforded me," Miles said.

Tuesday, 9 October 2018
New Gold Coast recruit Anthony Miles says he has been informed by Suns coach Stuart Dew that his role at the Suns will be as an inside midfielder to relieve pressure on his younger teammates.

"He said, 'We've got guys playing inside mid at the moment who at another club would be playing half-forward, but they're being thrown into the deep end'," Miles said.

"Basically, his vision for me is to play that inside role, crash and bash a bit, then to use my hands and get it to the outside.

"To help those guys develop and to play other positions and not be forced to play inside mid so early in their careers."

Monday, 8 October 2018
Anthony Miles and Corey Ellis are traded to Gold Coast.

The Suns will also receive Richmond's third-round pick from 2019, while Gold Coast will hand back their third-round pick from 2019.

"Anthony and Corey played well above VFL level this year and we understand their desire to seek new opportunities," Tigers football manager Neil Balme said.

"Milesy is the ultimate professional and has given our football club wonderful service over the past five years.

"At just 21 years old, Corey is a talented footballer and has a bright future ahead of him."

Tuesday, 11 September 2018
Fresh from winning the J.J. Liston Trophy for the VFL best and fairest, Anthony Miles says he still holds out hope for a spot in the Tigers' senior team this September.

"I'm 26 and I still feel like I'm in the prime of my career. I think my footy has, in a way, reflected that," Miles said.

"I've been at Richmond for five years, so the AFL selection committee know what I can produce if needed. I'll just continue to train with the main group and you just never know."

Monday, 10 September 2018
Anthony Miles and Williamstown midfielder Michael Gibbons have shared the JJ Liston Trophy as the best and fairest players in the VFL.

Miles, 26, shot out to an early lead with 16 votes from the first eight games before being hauled in by Gibbons, with both finishing on 19.

Miles averaged 30 disposals and 14 contested possessions per match.

Tuesday, 4 September 2018
Anthony Miles meets with Gold Coast about a possible move.

Miles, who has played only one senior game for the Tigers in 2018, is reportedly on the Suns' radar ahead of next month's NAB AFL Trade Period.

Saturday, 30 June 2018
Anthony Miles is knocked out and stretchered off late in Richmond's VFL side's clash with Box Hill at Punt Road Oval.

He was taken to hospital for precautionary measures but is expected to make a full recovery.

Monday, 6 November 2017
Anthony Miles re-signs with Richmond to remain at the club in 2018.

"Anthony is highly regarded by his teammates and the club as a whole," Tigers list manager Dan Richardson said.

"His strong work ethic, contested ball-winning ability and commitment to the team are second to none.

"Despite limited opportunities in 2017, he is a proven AFL player, who will continue to make a significant contribution to the club."

Monday, 16 October 2017
Anthony Miles is only a 50 per cent chance to remain at Richmond in 2018, according to his manager Marty Pask.

Miles struggled to maintain a spot in the AFL side with the arrival of former Gold Coast hard-nut Dion Prestia, managing just five games this year after 42 over the previous two seasons.

"It's certainly been pretty amicable and clear if there was a better position for you than the one you find yourself in, we're not going to hold you back. But at the same time, we love you, you won our reserves' best and fairest, which says a lot about your character as well," Pask explained.

"I think all that plays in to the fact that he's probably only one player out of the side at the moment."

Sunday, 24 January 2016
Despite playing every game in 2015, Richmond midfielder Anthony Miles doesn't feel as though he has cemented a spot in the Tigers' line-up.

But that's what happens when you arrive at your second club via the rookie list, having been delisted after just 10 games in two years at Greater Western Sydney.

"I've spoken to people about it and particularly Mark Williams (Richmond assistant coach) and he says it's not necessarily a bad thing to play on the edge," Miles said.

"For me I have probably played my whole career like that given where I have come from."

Friday, 24 July 2015
Richmond has moved quickly to re-sign in-form midfielder Anthony Miles, locking him away until the end of the 2017 season.

Miles was contracted until the end of 2016, but his excellent form this season has prompted the Tigers to act early and extend his deal by one year.

The 23-year-old has played every game this season, averaging 24 disposals and ranking No.1 at the club for clearances with 5.6 a game.

Wednesday, 8 July 2015
After accepting a fine for spitting at Anthony Miles, Toby Greene says it was not his intention to do so.

"There was no intention of spitting at Anthony, who's actually a mate of mine from his time at the Giants," Greene said.

"I made it clear to him after the game that no offence was intended and he accepted that without any issue."

Monday, 6 July 2015
Toby Greene is offered a $1500 fine by the Match Review Panel for spitting at Tiger Anthony Miles.
Wednesday, 20 May 2015
Anthony Miles has received more free kicks per game for high tackles since the statistic was first introduced.

Since the statistic of free kicks drawn for high contact in tackles started being recorded in 2013, he's racked up 39 in 23 matches.

Thursday, 21 August 2014
Anthony Miles signs a two-year contract extension with Richmond.

"I was hopeful [of being re-signed], but I did think I'd have to wait until the end of the year," Miles said.

"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."

Saturday, 14 June 2014
Anthony Miles remembers the "emotional roller-coaster" he rode when he was without an AFL home for nearly two months late last year as pretty tough to bear.

But it all seemed worth it last weekend when he made his debut for Richmond against North Melbourne after being upgraded from the club's rookie list a fortnight ago.

The 22-year-old was thrilled to be back on the AFL field after spending the first half of the season in the VFL, where he impressed with several standout performances.

It was reward for effort for the tough midfielder after he was cut from Greater Western Sydney after 10 games in two years at the end of last season.

"There was a little bit of doubt over whether I would get another chance," Miles said.

"It's been fantastic to play my first senior game for Richmond."
Tuesday, 20 May 2014
Anthony Miles is set to play his first match for Richmond against his former club Greater Western Sydney in round 10.

After showing excellent signs in the VFL, Miles was promoted to the senior list.

"Anthony has done everything right at VFL level since the start of the season and has well and truly earned his promotion to the senior list," Richmond's general manager of football Dan Richardson said.

"He's a hard worker, he loves the contested style of play, and he has fitted into the group extremely well since arriving at the club late last year.

"We're confident he'll grab his opportunity when it comes and make the most of it."

Saturday, 21 April 2012
Anthony Miles makes his AFL debut for GWS at Football Park with 15 disposals (11 kicks and 4 handballs), 8 marks and 6 tackles in a 46-point loss to Adelaide.
