Touk Miller has received a one-game suspension from the AFL after last weekend’s QClash.
Despite being cleared by the MRO, on Tuesday an investigation was launched into Miller’s tackle on Dayne Zorko which has found Miller breached AFL rule 2.3(a) and is guilty of conduct unbecoming.
Gold Coast SUNS General Manager of Football Performance Wayne Campbell said the club was disappointed in the decision reached by the AFL.
“We accept the AFL’s decision but as a club we are extremely disappointed in the outcome,” Campbell said.
“Touk is the captain of our football club and has built a reputation as a fair and strong leader who is admired by the entire AFL community.
“He is one of the most highly respected players in the competition and it’s disappointing his integrity and character has been tarnished during this process.”
Miller said his intention was always to execute a fair tackle.
“It was not my intention to harm Dayne and if that has occurred from my actions I would like to apologise to him,” Miller said.
