After playing her first year of football for Launceston in 2014 her leadership skills were quickly noticed and promoted to captain her team the following year. Her ability was again recognised by her hometown club on the North West Coast and she returned to Burnie winning the premiership the very next year.
Meagan moved to Sydney to study her Masters of Physiotherapy, where she played a further 3 years and managed to win two premierships with UNSW and Macquarie uni. She was a train on player for the GWS giants before moving to Victoria to captain North Melbourne in the VFLW last year. Then the awesome, ‘dream come true moment’ news broke that Meagan would be drafted as a mature player for the mighty Tigers and earned herself a guernsey at Punt Road Richmond donning the proud yellow and black colours in the AFLW 2022 season.
Meagan is a wonderful source of inspiration and determination, always reminding us if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything. We are super proud of her and with our commitment to championing women in Trades we could not think of a more perfect person to help promote, encourage and support young girls to follow their dreams whether it’s a career in sport or in a trade. Never give up.
We look forward to cheering Meagan and her Tigers teammates on and watching her kicking goals on and off the field. Go Tiges!
