Stephen John Devine (born 12 December 1976 in Boggabri, New South Wales, Australia) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer. He is a former All Black and currently co-hosts a programme on New Zealand Sky TV called This Given Sunday, along with Karl Te Nana.

He played for Australia Under-21 before relocating to New Zealand. A loyal servant of Auckland rugby, he made 78 appearances for Auckland and 70 for the Blues in the Super 12 Rugby competition. He was eligible to play for the New Zealand on residential grounds, and made his debut for the All Blacks on 9 November 2002, against England during the All Blacks end of year tour. He went on to play 10 tests for New Zealand, including the third/fourth place playoff in the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

He had to retire from rugby in 2007 after a series of concussions and other injuries.
