Scott Wilson (born (1970-11-08) 8 November 1970 (age 46)) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s, and 1990s, playing as a Fullback, Wing, Centre, or Five-eighth/Stand-off.

Wilson as a youngster played in the South Sydney Juniors competition for Coogee Randwick Wombats. While at South Sydney High School in 1986, Wilson was selected to play for the Australian Schoolboys team.[1]

Wilson made his first grade debut in Round 8 of the 1988 season against Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval, 25 April, coming off the bench in the second half. It later transpired that he was used as an illegal replacement and South Sydney were ultimately stripped of the two competition points they earned that afternoon.

Wilson played for six first-grade clubs during his career: South Sydney Rabbitohs, North Sydney Bears, Bulldogs (twice), Gold Coast Chargers, Western Reds and North Queensland Cowboys. He also played for Salford, and Warrington Wolves.

Wilson was selected to represent New South Wales as an interchange for game III of the 1997 Super League Tri-series against New Zealand.[2]
