Lloyd Meek not surprised by Fremantle rookie Karl Worner’s stunning Peel Thunder debut

Fremantle ruckman Lloyd Meek says it was “no surprise” Karl Worner starred on WAFL debut for Peel Thunder, with the resilience of the rookie-listed Docker impressing those at the AFL club.

Worner was taken by the Dockers with pick eight in last year’s rookie draft, but didn’t set foot in WA until late February, with border restrictions keeping him locked in Victoria.

The winger didn’t let the late start have a negative impact in his first competitive game in his new state, collecting 31 disposals and kicking two goals as the Thunder beat East Fremantle by 32 points on Good Friday.

After a blistering 10-disposal first quarter, Worner helped lift his side over the line late, playing a lead role in their seven-goal final term rampage.
