After missing out on a Grand Final appearance in 1987, when Gary Buckenara kicked a goal after the siren to win Hawthorn the Preliminary Final, but he got his chance the following season when he was a half back flanker in the premiership decider. He then had a particularly good year in 1989 when he managed 10 votes in the Brownlow Medal count, joining Jim Stynes as the club's leading vote getter for the season. In the same year he represented the VFL in an interstate match against Tasmania.
