Player Bio

At A Glance

AFLW Debut: v Greater Western Sydney, Round One, 2017
Recruited from: Eastern Devils (Vic)
AFLW Best & Fairest votes: 6

An imposing forward who brings others into the game with her football smarts. Perkins joined the Crows as a Free Agent for the inaugural AFLW season after being overlooked at the draft by clubs in her native Victoria. A booming and textbook shot at goal, Perkins also works hard defensively. She has a strong influence on the playing group, and is loved by teammates and fans alike.

Season by Season

Season by Season

One of the success stories of the inaugural AFLW Competition. Perkins developed cult-hero status for her clever play, goal celebrations and fun-loving nature. The All Australian topped the Crows’ goalkicking and finished second in the League with 11. Equalled the competition record of four goals in a dominant display against Collingwood in the last round to help propel her team into the Grand Final. Perkins was just as effective without the footy, leading the League in forward 50m tackles. She also forced the second-most turnovers of any player during the season. Finished top-five in the AFLW for contested marks and led the Crows for score assists alongside co-captain Erin Phillips.
