David Mills (born 1 June 1981 in Widnes) is an English professional rugby league footballer who last played for Swinton in the Championship as of autumn 2011. He previously played for Hull Kingston Rovers, and Widnes. He is also a Wales international representative. David Mills' usual position is as a prop-forward.

Mills is the son of 'Big Jim' Mills, a former Widnes, Wales and Great Britain player. He has previously played for his hometown club Widnes.

He joined Hull Kingston Rovers for the 2008 season after they avoided relegation in 2007's Super League XII.[1][2]

He was named as captain of the Wales squad to face England at the Keepmoat Stadium prior to England's departure for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup.[3]

Crusaders and Castleford were interested in signing Mills due to Hull Kingston Rovers looking to release him to make way for Joel Clinton,[4] however he has joined newly formed Welsh club South Wales Scorpions.[5]

On 14 May 2010, he returned to Harlequins in a one-month loan agreement.[6]

Mills spent the 2011 season with Leigh, winning the 2011 Northern Rail Cup in the process before signing for Swinton ahead of the 2012 season.
