Anthony Miles is well and truly a Tiger.
The Albury co-coach returned to Bunton Park yesterday for the first hit-out against North Albury - the side he played for before he was drafted to the AFL.
Miles booted two goals in the second term and the first clearly meant a lot to the former GWS Giants, Richmond and Gold Coast player, who couldn't contain his emotion.
The star midfielder was swamped by teammates after a huge celebration.
"I've played a lot of junior footy here, but no-one I played with is still here. My brother (David) is out at Howlong now and there's a few others around," Miles said.

"I still have a soft spot for the place no doubt, but Albury has just been fantastic for me.
"I love the place, love being around the playing group and all the supporters and everyone at the club have just been so welcoming."
Miles has guided the Tigers to five straight victories after a comprehensive defeat of the Hoppers, but will face a massive test against Wangaratta at Albury Sportsground next Saturday.
