Daniel Gilchrist was a New Zealand rugby footballer who was part of the professional 1907-1908 New Zealand rugby tour of Great Britain.
Gilchrist was a plumber by trade.
Gilchrist played rugby union for the Melrose Club and represented Wellington consistently from 1904 to 1907. Gilchrist was part of the Wellington side that won, and then lost, the Ranfurly Shield.
Despite being only 23, Gilchrist was selected for the professional All Blacks in their 1907–08 tour of Great Britain and Australia. Like all members of the tour, Gilchrist subsequently received a life ban from the New Zealand Rugby Union. He played in six test matches while on tour.
On his return to New Zealand, Gilchrist represented Wellington in rugby league.
