Scott Hill (born 30 May 1977) is an Australian retired professional rugby league footballer of the 1990s, and 2000s. He was previously with the Harlequins RL club in the European Super League. His usual position is at five-eighth. Hill previously played in Australia for the Melbourne Storm, Hunter Mariners (one of only two players to play in all the club's games in their lone season) and the Canterbury Bulldogs.

Hill is a former New South Wales and Australian representative player.

His good form over the years has seen him represent both his state (NSW) and country (Australia).

Recruited by the Storm from the Hunter Mariners, Hill was among several Melbourne Storm players from the club's inaugural year: 1998. He missed the Storm's 1999 NRL grand final win over the St. George Illawarra Dragons due to a knee reconstruction.[1] Having won the 1999 Premiership, the Melbourne Storm travelled to England to contest the 2000 World Club Challenge against Super League Champions St Helens R.F.C., with Hill playing at five-eighth and scoring two tries in the victory.

Seven seasons later Hill was still with Melbourne and his last match for them was at five-eighth in the 2006 NRL Grand Final loss to the Broncos. Leaving at the end of that season, Hill moved to London to play for the Harlequins club of Super League.
