Travis Waddell (born 11 July 1989) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Brisbane Broncos in the National Rugby League. He plays at hooker. He previously played for the Canberra Raiders and Newcastle Knights.
At the end of 2009, Waddell was named at hooker in the NYC Team of the Year.
Waddell was a regular in the Raiders team in 2010, despite being off the field for 10 weeks with a broken jaw.
Waddell started 2011 again as a regular, but was dropped from the first-grade team as the Raiders struggled, and joined feeder club Souths Logan Magpies for the remainder of the year.
Waddell played 21 games for the Raiders in 2012. At the end of the year he was released.
In 2013, Waddell returned to the Souths Logan Magpies in the Queensland Cup. However, in January, Newcastle Knights coach, Wayne Bennett asked Waddell to come and train with the NRL team a week each month while still playing for Souths Logan, with Knights CEO Matthew Gidley revealing that Waddell would train with the team in case he was needed during the season for the Knights.
