Capable of playing at both ends of the ground, Mark Neeld was seldom a first choice senior player at either of his league clubs, but was certainly capable of some excellent football. A strong mark and decent kick, he could take on the play or operate more defensively. In one game late in his career he tagged Paul Roos and kept him to just a single disposal. He played 48 AFL games and scored 17 goals for Geelong from 1990 to 1993, having played for the thirds in 1989. Following this, he added 26 games and 16 goals for Richmond between 1994 and 1996.
