Shannon Gallant (born 26 February 1986), is an Australian rugby league player. He has played in the National Rugby League (NRL) for the North Queensland Cowboys and the Wests Tigers. He primarily plays at fullback and is known for his speed and small stature.[2]

Gallant played junior Rugby League with the Campbelltown City Kangaroos,[3] and joined the Western Suburbs Magpies when he was 13 years old.[2] He made his NRL debut for the Wests Tigers (a joint venture between the Magpies and the Balmain Tigers) in 2007, and went on to play 12 games there in three seasons.

Gallant joined the North Queensland Cowboys for the 2010 and 2011 seasons after seeking a release from the Tigers, claiming that there would be more first-grade opportunities for him at the Cowboys.[4] His contract with the Cowboys ended in 2011, having played in nine NRL matches for the club.[5]

Gallant re-emerged in 2014 as a member of the Newtown Jets NSW Cup side, the reserve grade team for NRL club Sydney Roosters.[6]
