Anthony Quinn (born 19 January 1983 in Penrith, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league player for the Melbourne Storm in the National Rugby League competition. After playing for the Newcastle Knights' feeder club Valentine-Eleebana, Quinn was called up to the NRL in 2002. Showing steady improvement over the years, Quinn was finally rewarded with a chance to play for Country in the 2006 City vs Country Origin. Due to salary cap issues, the Knights were unable to re-sign Quinn past the 2006 season. On the open market, Quinn received a three year deal with the Storm for 2007 through 2009.

Quinn capped his first year with the Melbourne Storm with a premiership win, after the Storm's victory over the Manly Sea Eagles on 30 September 2007. He took great part in the game, scoring two tries.

Quinn continued his growing tendency to step up in big matches when he made his State of Origin debut for the New South Wales Blues at ANZ Stadium in Game I of the 2008 series and scored the opening two tries.

In August, 2008, Quinn was named in the preliminary 46-man Kangaroos squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup.
