Already a district cricketer with the Brighton club, Brunier made his debut in 1914 and kicked three goals on debut, but had only played five games of VFL football when World War I interrupted his career. At the time he was one of the lightest players on record, weighing the equivalent of 57kg.

He enlisted with the AIF in June 1917 and spent two and a half years overseas before returning in January 1919. He then resumed play with Melbourne and added another four games to his career total.
