Liam Bretherton (born 20 June 1979) is a former rugby league footballer who played at representative level for Ireland in the 2000 Rugby League World Cup and at club level for Wigan, Leigh, Warrington, Blackpool and Workington Town.

In 2011, he was appointed to the coaching staff at Huddersfield Giants as a strength and conditioning coach.[2]
