    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.

    For external observers that might seem strange.

    He finished fourth in the best and fairest and was one of the few Tigers who maintained his reputation with a solid performance in the team's elimination final loss.

    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 told AFL.com.au.

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

    The 23-year-old might have adopted a 'playing on the edge' mindset but his style of play is to be in the heart of the action.

    He hunts the football hard at stoppages, winning possession for his sleeker (he won't mind that assessment) teammates to do some damage.

    Often he is the last player up with the football if an umpire calls for a ball-up, readying himself for the next stoppage with the intensity of a front rower preparing for a rugby scrum.

    It's a good sign and one he has in common with the player he loved most growing up as a Saints fan, Lenny Hayes.
