Barry McAuliffe debuted with North Melbourne in 1962 and, although by no means a regular member of the senior combination, had played 41 VFL games for the club by the time a work transfer to Perth was implemented in 1966. The following year saw several WANFL clubs jostling with each other in bids to procure his signature, and he finally opted to join West Perth. From 1968 to 1973 he played 106 games for the Cardinals as well as kicking the first four goals of his career. Playing mainly on a half back flank, he was reliability personified, and made solid contributions to the club’s 1969 and 1971 grand final wins. He never got to represent Western Australia, although he was chosen in the state training squad on one occasion.
