One of many ex-University players to cross to Melbourne when their original club folded at the end of 1914, Bryan was a medical student who had represented Tasmania during the 1911 interstate carnival.

Upon joining the Fuschias he helped them qualify for their first finals series in more than a decade before having his career derailed by World War I.

He returned in 1920 for three more games despite having been linked with a move to St Kilda midway through the year. He missed the end of the season after being hospitalised for an operation and didn't play VFL football again.

Cleared back to Tasmania in April 1924 and rejoined Cananore.

War record shows status 'Cancelled' and no unit, so he may not have gone to war in 1918.

Shown in official records as playing in the Semi Final 1915 but multiple sources say he didn't appear so this game is not counted.
