PLAYER BIO

AT A GLANCE

Recruited from: GWV Rebels (VIC)
Draft information: National Draft 2017 - pick 69
Debut: Yet to debut
AFL clubs: Fremantle
Career Brownlow votes: -

SUMMARY
Taken with pick no.69 at the National Draft, Meek arrived at Fremantle with a body capable of competing with the strongest AFL ruckmen. The 19-year-old impressed during four VFL appearances for the North Ballarat Rebels in 2017, playing on occasions against AFL listed opponents.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Adam Read)
Lloyd has done the majority of ruck work against Aaron Sandilands this summer. He needs to work on his craft a little bit, but he’s at the best school learning from Aaron. He moves really well, is quite good at ground level and is quite clean with the ball for a big player.
