Schalk Ferreira (born 9 February 1984) is a South African rugby union player, currently playing with Toulouse in the French Top 14.[1][2] His regular position is prop, but he can also play hooker.

He represented Western Province at various age groups and was included in their 2005 Vodacom Cup squad. In 2006, he also played for them in the Currie Cup competition and in 2007, he was included in the Stormers Super Rugby squad. He made several appearances in all three those competitions until 2009. However, after playing a single game for Boland Cavaliers, he retired from rugby after sustaining a neck injury.

Two years later, he reversed this decision and rejoined Western Province[3] in the 2012 Vodacom Cup. He then joined the Eastern Province Kings on a two-month trial during the 2012 Currie Cup First Division.[4] This turned into a permanent deal and he was also in the Kings squad for the 2013 Super Rugby season.

He joined French Top 14 side Toulouse in 2013.[5] He initially signed as a medical joker, but later signed a three-year deal with Toulouse.[6]
