Leigh Harding (born 26 April 1981) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League. He currently serves as an Offensive Skills coach at the Brisbane Lions, and also as an assistant coach of the Lions' NEAFL reserves team.
A crumbing forward, Harding has the tendency to miss simple shots at goal on the run, although he has a high work rate. He topped the Kangaroos goalkicking in 2003 with just 33 goals, an equal personal best season haul.
In 2005, Harding moved from being a fringe player to more of a regular role. This improved in 2006 when he played 19 games out of 21, up until the final training session before Round 22, the final week of the season as the worst of luck struck as he suffered a knee injury, requiring a knee reconstruction, keeping him out of playing for around 12 months.
Leigh Harding retired from football in 2010.
