Browne usually played on the half back or half forward flanks and debuted for Hawthorn in 1960. He was a member of Hawthorn's inaugural premiership side in 1961, kicking 3 goals in the Grand Final. He didn't play at all in the 1963 season as he was studying law. Browne returned the following season however and in 1966 he represented Victoria at the Hobart Carnival.
Browne played with Melbourne University Blacks before joining Hawthorn. During undergraduate studies he penned a controversial Blacks report recommending the Blacks & Blues amalgamate, as it was originally. The report was not well received with the words referring to the Blacks was crossed out to prevent any unnecessary ill feeling. The next season two secretaries were appointed to better allow the committee dealing with known sources of friction with discretion.
