Brendan Hall is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 1990s. He mostly played five eighth, but he also spent time playing lock and occasionally centre.

Playing career

Hall was a Canberra junior, and an Australian schoolboys representative in 1984. In 1986, he moved to Sydney, joining the Arthur Beetson coached Eastern Suburbs Roosters. Early on in his career, he forged a reputation for being a tough, fearless, and hard hitting tackler, but later on he developed more of a pivotal role and predominantly played five eighth in the Roosters team, as well as occasionally being the team's goal-kicker.

At the end of 1995, Hall decided to retire from playing rugby league. With 157 appearances, he is currently 16th on the Sydney Roosters' list for most career appearances behind; Anthony Minichiello (302), Luke Ricketson (301), Craig Fitzgibbon (228), Kevin Hastings (228), Brad Fittler (217), Shaun Kenny-Dowall (215), Mitchell Pearce (215), Mitchell Aubusson (214), Barry Reilly (198), Mark Harris (190), Bill Mullins, (190), Jake Friend (189), Craig Wing, (185), Ray Stehr (182), and Kevin Junee (165).
