Another typical Touk Miller showing in Sunday’s defeat against Essendon has seen the 25-year-old’s superb season reach another significant mark.
His 30th disposal late in the last quarter sees him edge closer to uncharted territory with a 15th straight game accruing at least 30 touches.
It’s a feat that has only been reached once before in AFL/VFL history, remarkably just earlier this season from Bulldogs midfielder Jack Macrae.
Another 30+ disposal outing against the Swans this weekend would further highlight what has been a truly remarkable campaign for Miller in the SUNS midfield.
The Victorian is currently running at elite ratings in disposals, kicks, handballs, and tackles and has been a blessing to countless AFL Fantasy squads with the highest average of any player in the AFL this year.
Into his seventh season on the Gold Coast after been taken at Pick 29 in the 2014 draft, he has developed a reputation as one of the AFL’s most-disciplined and hardest workers, able to win his own ball or silence an opposition threat – whatever the occasion required.
After reaching the 30-disposal mark just eight times in his first 122 games, Miller has exploded into an attacking weapon for the SUNS in 2021, reliably putting opposition sides to the sword in a side striving for consistency.
Twice a runner-up in the SUNS Club Champion, including finishing just four votes behind winner Sam Collins in 2020, Miller is in a firm position to breakthrough for his first win on the SUNS night of nights, as well as a potential All-Australian birth.
