Harry Perryman Biography

Monday, 13 June 2022
Harry Perryman is set to be sidelined for an extended period after suffering broken ribs in the Giantsí win over North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium.
Saturday, 1 May 2021
Harry Perryman thought his season was over when he was diagnosed with glandular fever. But a week at the family farm was just the medicine the Greater Western Sydney half-back needed to return quicker than expected.

"I went back home for about a week, and just sat on the couch at the farm. I pretty much did nothing, just kind of sat there and watched TV," Perryman said.

"I've talked to a lot of people about glandular fever, and they've all said the same thing, that people miss a few months or even a year with it, so I was a bit worried that my season was done. But I only missed about three weeks. I was pretty lucky."

Wednesday, 23 September 2020
Harry Perryman signs a new two-year deal with the Giants to remain at the club until the end of 2022.

"It's been a challenging season this year but the future is exciting for our club and I can't wait to get 2021 underway," Perryman said.

Saturday, 21 September 2019
Harry Perryman, who played footy in the tiny country town of Collingullie in the Riverina region of New South Wales, reflects on the round one incident that results in a punctured lung.

Perryman ferociously attacked a 50-50 ball in the second term but was crunched by Essendon's Patrick Ambrose.

The 20-year-old courageously played out the quarter but ended up in hospital before the match finished, where doctors found he'd punctured a lung.

The injury cost Perryman seven games but he returned with 24 possessions and 10 marks against Carlton in round 10 and hasn't missed a game since.

"Thatís always been my natural game, if the footy is there and it's you turn to go you just put your head over it and go," he said.

"Thatís what my old coach back in 'Gullie used to always say.

"You used to come up against some big boys back in the day, so you used to get rag-dolled and thrown around a fair bit.

"At the time I was pretty shattered to miss so much footy but in hindsight, it probably helped me as a player."

Harry Perryman will miss at least one week after suffering a punctured lung in the Giants' win over Essendon.

The youngster was crunched in a heavy collision late in the second term of the Giants' 72-point victory on Sunday. He played out the half but didn't return after the main break.

Wednesday, 7 June 2017
Greater Western Sydney has locked away its top three 2016 draftees until the end of the 2020 season.

Teenagers Tim Taranto, Will Setterfield and Harry Perryman have wasted no time recommitting to the Giants, extending their contracts by two years apiece just 11 rounds into their first season in the competition.

Saturday, 20 May 2017
Harry Perryman makes his AFL debut for GWS with 7 disposals (4 kicks and 3 handballs), 3 marks and 7 tackles in a 3-point win over Richmond.
Wednesday, 17 May 2017
Harry Perryman will make his debut for the Giants in round 9 this week against Richmond.

Perryman has played mostly as a midfielder in the reserves, but is expected to slot into a role as a small defender against Richmond, alongside dual All Australian Heath Shaw, who was Perryman's mentor last year as part of the club's academy program.

"Harry was unlucky enough to fall under my guidance, so we just kept in contact throughout last year and I checked in on how he was going," Shaw said.

"He's been performing at a very high level from round one in the NEAFL, and has really shone under duress, given the amount of top-up players we've had, so he's really stood up and his leadership has been really good.

"He's a natural footballer and that gets lost a lot these days.

"Everyone is looking for the athlete with washboard abs, who can jump and mark it, but Harry is a rugged, country footballer, and he reads the ball really well and he's very, very skilful."

Friday, 25 November 2016
GWS select Harry Perryman with pick No.14 in the 2016 National Draft.
