Noel Goldthorpe (born 25 December 1969 in Botany, New South Wales) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 1990s. He played most of his career in the halves for the St George Dragons. Goldthorpe also played for the Western Suburbs Magpies, Hunter Mariners, Adelaide Rams and the North Queensland Cowboys, whom he captained.
Goldthorpe is notable for breaking the deadlock with a field goal for New South Wales in what was the longest recorded game of rugby league: the final of the 1997 Super League Tri-series against Queensland. In an ironic twist, however, he lost his starting spot at his club due to the impressive debut of Brett Kimmorley who had played in his stead while he was on representative duty with New South Wales.
