David Milne is an Australian Rugby League player.[1] He plays for the Mackay Cutters which is a feeder team for the North Queensland Cowboys. His usual position is as a Fullback.

David debuted for the Raiders in 2005,[1] winning the club's rookie of the year award. After a period moving between the NRL and Premier League David returned to the Raiders side in Round 9 of 2007, securing a regular first grade position at wing.[1] Early 2008 a season-ending injury to William Zillman gave Milne the opportunity to start at fullback after Bronx Goodwin failed to hold his position as the fill in Fullback for Zillman.

In round 13 2008 against the Eels, David Milne started at the back scoring the games opening try. He has since gone from strength to strength with his explosive kick returns and ability to muscle his way out of tackles. He is also willing to put his body on the line for the good of the team.

After limited opportunities in Canberra and being the 3rd choice fullback behind Josh Dugan and Nathan Massey, Milne signed with the North Queensland Cowboys in October 2011[2] and played for their feeder team the Mackay Cutters in 2012.[3]
