Paul Bulluss commenced his senior career with Woodville in 1990 before continuing with newly merged club Woodville West Torrens in 1991. He played 14 SANFL games and kicked 23 goals for the Warriors before adding 26 games and 17 goals in two seasons with the Eagles.
The 1993 season found Bulluss at Richmond where he made a big initial impression. Tall and quite strongly built at 194cm and 95kg he was a key position defender of the old school, treating every possession won by his direct opponent as tantamount to having flesh literally gouged from his body. Between 1993 and 1998 he played 97 AFL games and kicked 20 goals for the Tigers with his ultimate de-listing coming as something of a surprise as he was still producing good football and was a regular senior player. He also represented South Australia in 1995.
After leaving Richmond Bulluss joined Balwyn, who are also known as the Tigers, in Melbourne's Southern Football League. He was a premiership player with the club in 1999.
