Iles was picked up in the 2006 Pre-Season Draft by Collingwood after he was not taken in the National Draft weeks earlier. Iles played in the VFL for Tasmania as well as for state side in the TAC Cup, which showed signs of development at an early age. He made his debut against Adelaide at AAMI Stadium late in the 2006 season. He played 4 games, being dropped before the finals.
Iles found it hard to break into the Collingwood line-up, even with strong and consistent form for Williamstown, managing just the one senior game in the first half of the season, whilst being named as an emergency on nine occasions. He returned to the side again in Round 14 against St Kilda and performed well, gathering 19 possessions and making four tackles to help the Magpies win after being 21-points down in the last quarter. However, he would only play for Collingwood the following week against Geelong before being dropped back to Williamstown for the remainder of the year.
Sam got delisted at the end of the 2008 season, after failing to play a senior game for Collingwood in 2008. In 2009 he played for Box Hill Hawks in the VFL, and was drafted to the new Gold Coast Football Club in the 2010 Rookie Draft. Iles made his Gold Coast debut in their first win against Port Adelaide at AMMI Stadium in round 5.
