Miller ready to move on from Prestia, O’Meara departures

Gold Coast onballer Touk Miller says the Suns does not want players who do not to be at the club, stating the side is well placed to replace midfielder Jaeger O’Meara and Dion Prestia.

The Suns lost two top-10 draft picks last month, with O’Meara joining Hawthorn, while Presita signed with Richmond this trade period. However, Miller says the club is better off without players who do not want to be there.

“If they don’t want to be up on the Coast, and it is not for them, it is probably no use trying to have them around,’’ he said.

“I think what we have got now, we are filling their shoes with what’s left.

“If they don’t want to be up here, they don’t want to be up here, so it’s their choice.

“They are big shoes to fill but they can definitely be filled with what we have got.’’

Meanwhile, Miller said that he had no doubt Gary Ablett Jnr is 100 per cent committed to the club, despite reports suggesting he had requested a move back home to Geelong.

“It is a tough one, he opened up and the natural reaction for the players was just to get around him,’ he said.

“He has some family reasons, I can’t really go into details because I don’t know them but I know he is fully committed to the team and wants to come for pre-season.’’
