Meehan had a strong youth rugby pedigree, representing his home state of Queensland at a number of age-levels and this eventually ended in him being handed a place in the Queensland Reds academy for 2013. He picked up some invaluable experience in his year there, including an appearance against Junior Japan in the 2013 IRB Pacific Rugby Cup. During this time he also played Club Rugby for Sunnybank in the Queensland Premier Rugby competition and had a brief spell in rugby league with the Melbourne Storm where he was a regular with the club's under 20s.
He was handed his big break ahead of the 2014 Super Rugby season when he was named as a member of the Melbourne Rebels extended playing squad. He made his super rugby debut during the Rebels first match of the season against the Cheetahs on 28 February 2014, replacing Luke Burgess in the 74th minute in a 35-14 win for his side.
