Initially drafted by the Demons at the end of 1992 Prymke opted to stay in South Australia and was rewarded by playing in an SANFL Premiership side in 1993.

Opting to cross to Melbourne after that success he was an instant hit in defence. Playing almost every game over his first two seasons he finished third in the 1995 Best and Fairest but saw his career destroyed by injury after that.

A chronic form of rheumatoid arthritis in his back kept him to just four games in 1996, and none in 1997 before he retired after round 16 that year.

In his autobiography Garry Lyon named Prymke as one of the best defenders he had played with.
