Colin Scott (born 22 March 1960 in North Queensland) is an Indigenous Australian former rugby league footballer of the 1970s and 80s. He played the game at Fullback but could also play Wing. Scott was also a back-up goal kicker for the teams he played with.

Scott played at fullback for Wynnum-Manly in the Brisbane Rugby League premiership's grand final victory of 1982. Several years' good service in Queensland's state teams spring-boarded Wynnum-Manly's Colin Scott into the Australian Test side for the one-off match against New Zealand in 1983. Despite 25 appearances for his state during his career (including 18 State of Origin appearances), Scott did not represent Australia again. By the time the Broncos were admitted to the New South Wales Rugby League premiership, his top class career was all but over and he left the club after only one season.

Scott played for the Queensland Maroons in both the old State-of-Residence games and State of Origin from 1979-1987 until losing his place at fullback to Gary Belcher in 1986.

In 2000, Scott was awarded the Australian Sports Medal for his contribution to Australia's international standing in rugby league.
