Player Bio

AT A Glance

Junior Clubs: East Fremantle (WA)
Clubs: Hawthorn rookie list/ Fremantle
Draft information: Rookie Draft 2011, pick 44
Debut: Yet to debut
Recruited from: Hawthorn
Brownlow Votes: -

Outlook: Menegola has elite endurance skills – the best at the club, but he’s been unable to make a senior appearance in three seasons at AFL level. This looms as a huge year for the former Hawthorn recruit.
What the coach says (Marc Webb): Is renowned for his aerobic capacity. He’s been training well, his strength is up and his running capacity is still up there. Sam’s one that is so diligent and will do everything to give himself an opportunity and he’s really looking forward to giving himself that best chance this year.

AFL Fantasy: Has the ability to run all day, which is a major plus in AFL Fantasy, but he’ll need to work his way off the rookie list before being considered for an AFL game.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Still to make his AFL debut after two years at Freo and one at Hawthorn. A knee injury kept him sidelined for most of 2013.

Sam Menegola spent a year at Hawthorn before being drafted to Fremantle.

He spent the season playing league for East Fremantle and made good progress, including a strong effort in the WAFL Grand Final.

An elite endurance athlete, Menegola will look to continue his development and make an AFL debut in 2013.
