Matthew Dundas (born 7 December 1971) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy and Richmond in the Australian Football League (AFL).[1]

Dundas, a rover, played 15 games in 1990, his first season.[2] He was a regular fixture in the team in both 1991 and 1992, averaging 17 disposals a game in each of those years.[2] Dundas polled nine Brownlow Medal votes in the 1992 AFL season.[2] Only Paul Roos received more votes in the count from Fitzroy.[3] His tally included two best on ground performances, a career high 30 disposal game against Essendon Football Club in the second game of the season and a 28 disposals, 3 goal effort, also against Essendon, later in the year.[2] In the 1993 season he kicked a five goal haul against Collingwood at Princes Park.[2] It was the second time that he had kicked five goals, having also managed the feat in his debut season against the Sydney Swans.[4] He finished his career at Richmond, where he was traded, along with Paul Broderick and Michael Gale, in exchange for pick six (Trent Cummings) of the 1993 AFL Draft.[5]
