Debuting in the 1959 premiership season, ruck-rover Kenneally played two games in the middle of the season but found it hard to break into a strong side after that. After his two games, both of which he started as a reserve, he was allowed to play school football and appeared in a representative game.

The next year he became a regular first team player, and was a wingman in that year's Grand Final victory. That year he also won a "long kicking" competition at the Showgrounds.

Kenneally won a second flag in 1964, but had become a half-forward flanker. As the understudy ruck/rover to Ron Barassi he found himself shouldering more of the load that season and was thrown into the role full time after Barassi defected to Carlton. In 1965 he was appointed vice-captain and ran third in the Best and Fairest. That year he played every game, and repeated the feat in 1966.

Selected to play for Victoria for the first time in 1967, Kenneally missed his first ever career game because of injury in Round 15, 1968 but played just two games, in Round 1 and Round 20, during 1969 before retiring.

He joined VFA side Prahran in 1970 and played in premierships that year and 1973 before retiring.
