From: Norwood, Selection #16, 1987 National Draft
Described as "the quickest and possibly the most skilful player in the SANFL" in a 1987 draft preview, Melbourne drafted McNeil despite him already having refused offers from them to sign during the season. Senior listed in 1989 but failed to play a game after suffering a serious achilles injury. Played 62 games for Norwood in 1987 and 1988, then again in 1991.
McNeil was still playing South Australian country football in 2001. In one game he kicked 15 goals.
