Bruce Hatcher was a promising centre for the Eastern Suburbs club in the Brisbane competition. On the cusp of reaching higher honours, a spate of injuries and growing opportunities in the business world forced him to cut short his promising playing career.
However, the well travelled and highly educated former Tigers player is still actively involved with rugby league and now serves as Chairman on the QRL Board.
He prides himself on making decisions that are in the best interests of the game. An accredited family business adviser with BDO, Bruce is also the deputy chairman of the Academy of Sport (QAS) and a director of both the MTAA Super Fund and Brisbane Markets Limited.
