Bruce Nankervis (born 14 August 1950) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Victorian Football League for Geelong Football Club. He wore the number 33 during his tenure at the club.

Nankervis was awarded the Carji Greeves Medal in 1973 and 1974 and captained the club in 1976 and 1977 before he broke a bone in his neck that required him to travel to the United States for treatment. His older brother Ian took over the captaincy in 1978 and still holds the record for most games played for Geelong.[1]
