George Harder (born June 22, 1974) is a Samoan Rugby Union player. He usually plays at Wing or Centre for Harlequins. He joined Quins from Leeds Tykes in the summer of 2003. He made his league debut in the 33-27 victory over London Wasps but suffered a knee ligament injury the following week that would keep him out of action for three months. Unfortunately his time at Quins has been disrupted by injury throughout.

Before moving to England, he played for Auckland in New Zealand's domestic NPC tournament and for Auckland Blues in the then Super 12. Harder also had a spell with the Brisbane Broncos rugby league team.

He was part of the Samoan squad that competed in the 1995 World Cup, where they were knocked out by the hosts and eventual winners South Africa in the quarter finals. He left Quins in 2005 because they were relegated. Now he's left rugby for good.
