Russell Bawden (born 24 July 1973 in Queensland) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 1990s and 2000s. A Queensland State of Origin representative forward, he played in the National Rugby League for the Brisbane Broncos and Melbourne Storm (with whom he won the 1999 NRL Premiership), as well as in Super League for the London Broncos.

He was signed by the newly formed Melbourne side from the London club and helped the Storm to a premiership in their second ever season,[1] playing from the bench in their 1999 NRL Grand Final victory. The following pre-season he travelled with the Storm to England to play in the 2000 World Club Challenge which they also won. During the 2000 NRL season, while playing for Melbourne, he was selected to make his State of Origin debut.
