Player Bio

Background

Taken by Greater Wester Sydney in 2010 as an ACT zone selection, Bruce requested a trade to St Kilda at the end of the 2013 season.

After spending the majority of his time at GWS in defence, the emergence of Josh Bruce inside forward 50 in 2015 took the competition by surprise. Bruce, now a versatile key position player, stamped himself as a bona-fide attacking weapon capable of providing an imposing target and kicking goals.

Since moving forward, Bruce has averaged over 40 goals per season, including a 50-goal year in 2015 that seen him place tenth in the Coleman Medal. His ability to set up his teammates has continued to grow, recording 11 goal assists in 2017, more than doubling his total in 2015 (five).

With St Kilda set to debut a new-look forward line in the absence of Nick Riewoldt, Bruce will play a key part in an evolving Saints attack.
