Almanac Football – Round 13 Carey-Bunton Medal: Giant’s Harry Perryman still in contention




GWS mid-fielder Harry Perryman has remained in contention for the Carey-Bunton Medal for the Best NSW Player in the AFL after Round 13 by polling two votes against West Coast.

The former Collingullie junior star Harry Perryman has moved into equal third place on 20 votes with Swans star defender Dane Rampe who has been sidelined for the rest of the season with a fractured hand.


Gold Coast Suns skipper Jarrod Witts has retained his lead in the Carey-Bunton Medal for the Best NSW Player based on the votes of the AFL Coaches Association.


Although Witts did not poll any votes in Gold Coast’s loss to Carlton neither did his closest challenger Geelong’s Tom Hawkins who booted 3 goals in the Cats win over Adelaide.


With four rounds remaining the race for the medal looks to be a contest between Witts, Hawkins and Perryman.

  1. Perryman’s got some ground to make up, Hawkins is finishing strongly and would be my pick. The boy from Finley might win the Coleman and the more prestigious Carey-Bunton medal!

  2. Yesss Dan, too right he has.

    And I couldn’t agree more with you about your Tommy Hawkins prediction.
    Haha. Good humour. Thanks.
