Barry Russell is an Australian retired professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 90s. He played in the halves for the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks club of the NSWRL Premiership[1] with whom he won the Rothmans Medal in 1988.

A member of the same Jersey Flegg Cup team as Andrew Ettinghausen and Jonathan Docking,[2] Russell made his first-grade debut in 1985. Towards the end of the season, Russell was the team's regular five-eighth.

Russell had the first of two shoulder reconstructions after the 1985 season,[3] and took no part in 1986. His career was often hampered by injury.[4]

Despite missing six games of the 1988 NSWRL season due to injury, 23-year-old Russell was awarded the Rothmans Medal.[5]
