Gold Coast SUNS lock in Touk Miller for life!

The Gold Coast SUNS finally have some good news, with superstar player Touk Miller signing on to be a SUN for life!

The 2021 Club Champion’s inked a five-year contract extension, which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2027 Premiership Season.

The 25-year-old joined the club in 2014 after being selected with pick 29 in the draft.

In his third season, 2019, he made it into the leadership group as vice-captain, and in 2021, he took out his maiden Club Champion.

He says there’s nowhere else he’d rather be.

“I’m super grateful and humbled to be extending my contract for another five years,” Miller said.

“I think it’s a really exciting time to be a part of this club and what we’re going to do going forward, so I was absolutely over the moon to extend.

“To see success at this club, I think it’s really important that I’m here for that and I get to be a part of that, it will be pretty special.”

“I think moving forward there’s still so much growth and opportunity.

“Now that I’ve had a taste for that success individually I’d love to transfer that to more success for the team.

“I think as the team gets better, I’ll get better, my teammates will get better.

“We’ve got some players in our team that are going to be far greater than I am as a player and that’s off the back of us being really successful as a team and working together really strongly.

“I’m looking forward to that, it’s going to be an unbelievable journey and an unbelievable ride,” Miller said.

It comes just a day after an embarrassing management blunder by the SUNS, which saw them lose star player Hugh Greenwood to the Kangaroos.
