HAWTHORN star Shaun Burgoyne will move into outright second for the most AFL finals played when he runs out against Geelong tomorrow night.

Tomorrow’s blockbuster qualifying final will be his 32nd finals appearance, overtaking Collingwood's Gordon Coventry and second only to Hawthorn legend Michael Tuck, who played in 39 finals.

Burgoyne’s record is staggering, having won 20 of those 31 finals he has played in over the course of 11 finals series and winning four premierships.

His durability is remarkable, and has played 81 consecutive games at Hawthorn – the longest current streak of any player at the club.
