Miller aims to make best of difficult situation in final match

Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - 11:42 PM - by Chris Pike

KRIS Miller doesn’t want his 150th match with South Fremantle and 303rd in the WAFL in the Foundation Derby on WA Day at Fremantle Oval to be his last, but it will be and it gives him the chance of a fitting send off and time to decide what he would like to do in 2015.

Miller has been playing WAFL football since making his debut in Round 1, 1999 and he thought he would be at least up until the end of the 2014 season, but that now won't be the case with Monday's game for South Fremantle against East Fremantle the last of his remarkable career.

Not only will the match be Miller's last, but also his 150th with South Fremantle and 303rd of his WAFL career. Earlier this season, he already became just the sixth player to reach 300 WAFL matches and now he makes history becoming the first to play 150 games at two separate clubs.
