Rob Miller (born 5 August 1989 in Carlisle, Cumbria) is an English rugby union player for Wasps.[2] He plays at Full-back. Miller was brought up in Bothel, Cumbria.[3]

In the 2007/8 season Miller was Tynedale's top try-scorer as they won promotion to National Division Two.

Miller made his Newcastle Falcons first team début in 2008, in a man-of-the-match winning performance against Bristol.[4] In June 2010, Miller signed a three-year deal with Sale Sharks,[5] where he has made a number of appearances, earning man-of-the-match status in two games.[6] Sale had to compete with Bath Rugby for Miller's signature and Falcons had been keen to hang on to him.[7]

Miller has won England Caps at Under-16s, Under 18s and Under 20 levels, helping England Under-20 to the Grand Slam in 2008, and the final of the IRB Under-20s World Cup in Wales.[8]

In 2009, he appeared in the Under-20s World Cup final in Japan.[9]

On 6 February 2014, Miller signed for the Wasps from the 2014-15 season.[10]
