DON’T expect huge things out of Gold Coast’s trade acquisitions, but they help add some experience to a squad that lost so many senior players to trades, free agency and retirement. Anthony Miles struggled to get a game at Richmond in the past two seasons, but he is a capable ball-winner in the midfield and averaged 22.7 disposals from 19 games in 2016. Corey Ellis was a No.12 pick in the 2014 draft, but similarly he struggled to break into the Tigers’ potent midfield, despite his obvious talent. George Horlin-Smith (Geelong) and Jack Hombsch (Port Adelaide) have also come in. Both are set to start next season, providing hardened bodies the Suns lack.
