What’s the funniest sledge you have heard?
Nothing that’s really funny or that original. I get referred to as my older brother Aaron a lot. I haven’t met a fan or opposing player that sledges smart enough to come up with much better than that.
Who’s the best player you have ever played with?
Scottie Wilbekin, he made our team really good. Offensively and defensively.
What’s the best advice you have been given?
Never forget where you come from.
I'm excited to be returning home next month to Horsham and launching the first Shaun Bruce Basketball Camp. Further details on Facebook. 🏀 pic.twitter.com/WtgdDW8qqc

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen a teammate keep or do in the locker room?
Nothing out of the ordinary, my career is still young though.
What rule of your code would you ditch if you could?
New interpretations of unsportsmanlike fouls.
How do you unwind after a season?
Spend time with my family in my hometown, Horsham. It’s not for long but it’s all I need.

If you weren’t playing sport, what would you do as a job?
I really don’t know, I have a sports science degree but I’m unsure if it would be that. Maybe a trade back in Horsham. I wouldn’t be very good at it though.
What one word would your teammates describe you as?
