Nick Frisby (born 29 October 1992 in Brisbane, Australia) is a rugby union footballer who plays professionally for the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby. His regular playing position is scrum-half. He made his debut during the 2012 Super Rugby season.

Nick Frisby made his debut for the Queensland Reds against the Durban Sharks in round 4 of the 2012 Super Rugby season at Suncorp Stadium. Frisby came off the bench in the 47th minute of the match going on to play 33 minutes. Unfortunately it was not a dream debut even after scoring a try with the Reds losing 22-27.

Frisby's local club side is GPS Rugby in the Queensland Premier Rugby Competition.

Frisby was named in the Australia under 20 team that competed in the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship in South Africa.[1]

In the 2014 National Rugby Championship Frisby was one of the competition's best, turning out for Brisbane City leading them to their inaugural title in a 37-26 victory over the Perth Spirit at Ballymore Stadium.

During a disappointing 2015 season for the Queensland Reds team, Frisby started seven matches at flyhalf due to the unavailability of injured star Quade Cooper. Frisby playing out of position earned praise for his efforts so much so being invited into a Wallabies meeting in Brisbane with head coach Michael Cheika.

Prior to 2016, Frisby gained the majority of his Queensland Reds caps on the bench being the second pick scrum-half to Will Genia. But Genia announced in 2015 that he would leave the Reds to move to Stade Francais in France at seasons end, potentially opening the door for Frisby to secure a permanent starting berth in the Queensland Reds team.

Frisby was named in the Wallabies initial 39-man squad for the 2016 series against England.[2]
