Robert W. "Bob" Murray (born 5 April 1942) is a former Australian rules footballer in the VFL.

Murray played with St Kilda initially as a forward but soon moved to full back. He starred in St Kilda's 1966 Grand Final win, taking a mark in defence with seconds left in the game.

Murray also played in the Victorian Football Association for the Sandringham Football Club. Prior to his time at St Kilda, he played 52 games for Sandringham, including (in the last game of that stint) Sandringham's 1962 premiership in which it came back from a 44-point three-quarter time deficit to defeat Moorabbin by one point. After his time at St Kilda, he returned to play 2½ seasons with Sandringham from 1974 until 1976.[1]
