Arthur 'Poddy' Hiskins (9 September 1886 – 23 October 1971)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with South Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Hiskins was a versatile player who was usually used in defence but sometimes pushed up forward. He played on the half back flank in South Melbourne's two point grand final win over Carlton in 1909, his only premiership with the club. One of four brothers to play in the VFL, Hiskins could kick the ball long distances and was also one of the faster players in the side. Between 1916 and 1918 he didn't play any football due to serving in the war but returned in 1919. From 1930 to 1933, Hiskins officiated in 52 league games, as a goal umpire.[2]
