Background

Meyers attended school at Villanova College where he initially played rugby union. While attending Villanova College, Meyers played for the Australian Schoolboys team in 1997. While with the Brisbane Broncos, he also played for the Past Brothers in the Queensland Cup.

Brisbane Broncos

Having won the 2000 NRL Premiership, the Brisbane Broncos traveled to England to play against 2000's Super League V Champions, St Helens R.F.C. for the 2001 World Club Challenge, with Meyers playing from the interchange bench and scoring a try in Brisbane's loss. He made his début for the Broncos in the Australian National Rugby League competition and later was picked for the State of Origin series in Australia where he represented the Queensland Maroons in their triumph over their fierce rivals the New South Wales Blues. The big redhead then went on to represent Australia in two tests against New Zealand and Great Britain on the 2001 Kangaroo tour. He played 102 games for the Brisbane Broncos before signing for the Bradford Bulls in 2005.

Bradford Bulls

Meyers had two seasons at the Bradford Bulls and played in the 2005 Super League grand final-winning team that beat Leeds 15–8. As Super League champions Bradford faced National Rugby League premiers Wests Tigers in the 2006 World Club Challenge. Meyers played at second-row forward in the Bulls' 30-10 victory.

Gold Coast Titans

On 1 July 2006, it was announced that the new NRL franchise, the Gold Coast Titans, had signed Meyers on a two-year deal. Meyers stated, "I am really looking forward to playing with the Titans. It's a new challenge for my career and I couldn't think of a better place to be." He did however explain that he "really enjoyed playing here at Bradford. It was a change I needed but now it is time to head back home. I have a few goals I wish to achieve within the NRL and feel that these last couple of years have given me a solid background on which to make my return." In May 2011, Meyers announced that would be his last year in the NRL.
