Daryl Halligan (born 25 July 1966 in Waikato, New Zealand) is a rugby league football commentator and former professional player. A New Zealand international winger, he was the pre-eminent goal-kicker of his era, retiring as the highest point scorer in Australian premiership history. Halligan played club football in Australia for the North Sydney Bears and Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, winning the 1995 ARL Premiership with the latter.

Before defecting to the professional code of rugby league, Halligan played amateur rugby union for Waikato. In rugby league Halligan was renowned as a fine goalkicker, his 855 first grade goals coming at an impressive 80% success rate. He was the first person to score 2,000 points in the NRL. At the time of his retirement he held the competition point-scoring record at 2,034 points. He also scored 80 tries, and kicked 4 field goals.

Halligan is noted for revolutionising goal-kicking by using a plastic tee from which to kick.

Halligan is currently a commentator with Sky Network Television in New Zealand.

He also taught Johnathan Thurston how to kick conversions. It was said at an interview that Halligan taught Thurston whilst Johnathan was at Sydney club the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs. Also that Halligan hated the way Thurston "hooks" the ball. Halligan taught Thurston to control the hook so it comes in or goes out.
