Player Bio

Background

Bruce was originally selected by Greater Western Sydney as an ACT zone selection in 2010, before requesting a trade to St Kilda at the end of the 2013 season.

It was a frustrating 2018 for the forward powerhouse, who after an impressive 36-goal effort the year prior, only managed to get out on the park three times.

Bone stresses in his lower back sidelined Bruce up until the midpoint of the season, but the biggest disappointment was yet to come.

Celebration for the Saints’ victory over Melbourne in Round 15 soon became commiseration, as Bruce – who was set to return to the senior side that week – fractured his fibula in a freak training accident.

Now back to full fitness, the 26-year-old will hope to return to prominence as part of the Saints’ three-pronged offensive alongside Paddy McCartin and Tim Membrey.
