McGuane is a key position player. He was drafted by Richmond with pick 36 in the 2004 national draft. He was recruited from Broadbeach in the (AFL Queensland State League).

In a VFL game in 2007, playing for Coburg, he was struck by a falling goalpost in a bizarre incident.[1]

McGuane is the cousin of dual Collingwood best and fairest winner Mick McGuane.[2]

At the end of the 2013 season, he was delisted by Richmond. He then signalled an intention to return to Queensland under former Richmond assistant coach, Justin Leppitsch at the Brisbane Lions. On 4 November 2013, the Brisbane Lions signed McGuane as a delisted free agent.[3]

He announced his immediate retirement from the AFL in September 2015, citing a knee injury.[4]
