North Melbourne recruited Hepburn from Claremont and he was used initially as a forward in the VFL. He kicked a goal with his first kick in league football, against St Kilda at Moorabbin Oval. Hepburn, who could also play as a key defender, was North Melbourne's leading ruckman in the 1989 and 1990 seasons, with the most hit-outs each year.[1]

He requested a trade to West Coast in 1991 but spent just two seasons with his new club before being delisted when they had to trim their squad.[2] After a year spent traveling overseas, Hepburn was picked up by Sydney with selection 57 in the 1993 AFL Draft but would only make seven appearances.[3]
