Robert Stuart (1887–1959) was an Australian rugby union and rugby league player and represented his country at both sports - a dual-code rugby international.

Born in Annandale, New South Wales, Stuart represented for the Wallabies as a flanker in the drawn two Test series in 1910 against the touring All Blacks.

After switching to the professional code in 1911 he was selected to tour Great Britain with the 1911–12 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain led by Chris McKivat. He played in two tour matches. Stuart is listed on the Australian Players Register as Kangaroo No. 84. [2]

Along with Charles McMurtie and Peter Burge, Stuart made his international league debut in a 1911 tour match but did not play in any Tests. Collectively they are likely to have been Australia's 17th to 19th dual code rugby internationals.
