Complete useless at bringing the ball back. Can't see him ever being more than 3rd choice fullback. He def ain't a winger.

I like him but he was like a fish out of water tonight. Made a lot of mistakes.

Fox has him finishing with 41m and 6 missed tackles.

Not big enough to play wing. Hiroti should have been the fill in.
Yep , we need someone who can bend the line on early tackles in an attacking set & Miller doesn't do that . Realise Hiroti is not a favourite on this forum but certainly would have been better than Miller last night

Fitz looks like he gave in to temptation by picking Miller. The guy has good attacking upside (though I've only really seen speed tbh) but lacks the defensive fundamentals Fitz is suppose to be all about.
But he's not alone in wanting to play with the shiny new toy, I think most of us hoped Miller would break out.

Still shake my head every time I see him submit in a tackle, legs splayed like he's starting a maul... Sigh...

Haven't understood the hype all year tbh, gets dominated in every tackle, refuses to catch the ball on the full, worst defense and positioning I've seen in ages.

But hey atleast he's fast. 🙄
If Dykes and Iro aren't ahead of him 2 weeks into pre-season I'll be shocked.

Dykes seemingly ahead already for fullback.
I said a while back Miller is just a Laurie or Savage, can give a flashy highlight and will look good when your teams winning but doesn’t (currently) have the skills of a top fullback.

Hope Fitz does go into pre season with an open mind and may the best man win.
