He left his Melbourne-based role as Victorian RFU Development Officer in 2005 to accept a position with the Arabian Gulf Rugby Football Union, taking responsibility as Rugby Development Manager position for six GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries.
Bruce has enjoyed every opportunity to travel, study abroad and play rugby around the world. He grew up in Christchurch and returned in 2011 to be closer to family.
An outdoor enthusiast and avid skier, Bruce has appreciated the chance to rediscover the Canterbury West Coast region.
