Nick Meaney opens up on ‘pretty special’ feeling to play 100 games
Melbourne Storm fullback Nick Meaney says it’s a “pretty special” feeling to know he’ll run out for his 100th NRL game on Sunday against the Sharks at AAMI Park.
The former Knights and Bulldogs utility joined the Storm last year and has been a revelation under coach Craig Bellamy, scoring 21 tries and kicking 86 goals in 34 matches.
He’s provided more than adequate cover for the injured Ryan Papenhuyzen at the back and Meaney told The Continuous Call Team he’s grateful to reach the milestone.
“Pretty special,” Meaney said.
“Especially considering my Granddad played NRL back in the day and I think he notched up over 100 games so to reach that milestone as well is pretty special, you never think you are really going to get there.
“To get to 100 means a lot to me and my family.”
Both the Storm and Sharks are sitting inside the top eight with seven wins each this season.
