Meaney has been playing against seniors in the North Coast competition in previous years, and I think that shows. He is a massive improver over the season. In the first few games he seemed to struggle under the high ball and with his positioning, especially in defence, but he just keeps getting better. It's interesting that some of our biggest improvers this year have come from outside junior systems - like the Saifiti's last year. We have seen Penn from NZ, Soper-Lawler and Joey Morris from the local comp and Meaney from Ballina all get better and better as the year goes on. It just shows you have to keep the door open for late developers.
