Bruce Walker (born 8 June 1952) is an Australian former rugby league footballer of the 1970s and 1980s.[1] An Australian Kangaroos and Queensland Maroons representative second-row or lock forward, he played club football in Brisbane with Eastern Suburbs before moving to Sydney to play with the North Sydney Bears for seven seasons between 1971-1977, and later Manly-Warringah with whom he won the 1978 Grand Final and played for six seasons between 1978-1983. Walker was then selected to go on the 1978 Kangaroo tour, playing in 8 matches.

Following his retirement as a player Walker became chairman of the South Australian Rugby League.
