Neale’s ‘cheapies’ for a cause

Lachie Neale makes his pledge for the Starlight Purple Haze game.

A big round one performance for ball magnet Lachie Neale could be a windfall for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, thanks to the generosity of Fox Sports presenter Neroli Meadows.

A passionate Freo fan, Meadows put her money where her heart is for her Starlight #purplehazepledge, which raises money to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

After Neale tweeted his pledge of $10 for every Garrick Ibbotson mark in Fremantle’s home opener, Meadows upped the ante. 

In 2016, Neale averaged 33.5 disposals per game, and a similar performance will see Meadows sending $167.50 Starlight’s way.

But Neale also exceeded 40 disposals on five occasions in his Doig Medal winning season, including two 42-disposal performances against Essendon in round 11 and Gold Coast in round 18.

If Neale can match his 2016 best, Starlight will be up for a $210 windfall from Meadows.

Neale even joked that Neroli’s generosity might even excuse him for chasing some cheap possessions. 

The Fremantle Dockers Foundation is proud to have the Starlight Children's Foundation on board as a Principal 'Friend of the Foundation’
