Tony Chalmers (born 9 December 1964)[2] is an Australian former rugby league player.

Chalmers made his first grade debut at the age of 20 with the Parramatta Eels in round 7 of the 1985 NSWRL season,[1] becoming the 439th player to do so. Playing on the wing, he scored a try on debut.

In his second year with the club, he won a premiership when Parramatta defeated Canterbury-Bankstown in the 1986 Grand Final.

In 1987, Chalmers found himself regularly in the run-on squad. He scored 7 tries that season, a career best. In his final year with the Eels, he scored 3 tries.

In 1989, Chalmers began playing with the Balmain Tigers. An injury sustained in the early part of the season saw him sidelined for 5 weeks. Returning in round 10, he was part of squad that took Balmain to the grand final. Balmain went down to the Canberra Raiders 19-14 in extra time.

In his final season in the NSWRL, Chalmers only played three first grade games. His final game was played against the Illawarra Steelers in round 15. He scored a try in Balmain's 32-8 victory.

Chalmers is now employed as floor manager for the Nine Network.
