It was a year of change in the middle of the ground for Gold Coast, injuries did play a part in the centre bounce rotation but that was combined with a view to the future.
Touk Miller was the No.1 ranked player at the Suns in 2021, he was used at 74.3% of team centre bounces & 78.6% in games he played in (21).
His centre bounce usage should be strong again in 2022.
