Jason Ryles (born 17 January 1979 in Wollongong, New South Wales) is an Australian rugby league player. He has played in the National Rugby League for the Sydney Roosters and the St. George Illawarra Dragons and in Europe's Super League for the Catalan Dragons. He is contracted to play for the Melbourne Storm from 2012. He plays in the front-row.
Ryles has played fifteen Tests for Australia and represented the New South Wales Blues on eight occasions.
He returned to the NRL in 2010 with the Sydney Roosters and was part of the team that made the Grand Final that season. However, after a disappointing 2011 season for the Roosters, his contract was terminated one year before its expiry. He subsequently signed with the Melbourne Storm for the 2012 season. The Storm, who were the minor premiers in 2011, cited Ryles' experience as a major factor in his signing.
