Chris Walsh (born 5 June 1962) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 90s. A New South Wales State of Origin forward, he played club football for the St. George Dragons and Illawarra Steelers.
As a 19-year-old, Walsh moved from Port Kembla to Kogarah and played five seasons at the St. George Dragons between 1982-1986. He was selected to represent New South Wales as a second-rower for game III of the 1984 State of Origin series.
Walsh returned to Illawarra in 1987 and became captain of the Steelers. Despite injuring two vertebrae in his neck during a game in 1987, Walsh played on and was named Clubman of the Year in 1988 and 1989. He captained the Steelers to their first trophy in 1992 - the pre-season Toohey's Challenge Cup. A knee ligament injury eventually led to his retirement early in the 1992 season.
