David Hulme (born 6 February 1964 (1964-02-06) (age 47)) is a former professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s and '90s who at representative level has played for Great Britain, and at club level for Widnes, Leeds Rhinos, and Salford City Reds, playing at Stand-off/Five-eighth, or Scrum-half/Halfback, i.e. number 6, or 7. David Hulme is the brother of the Great Britain, Widnes, and Warrington rugby league footballer, Paul Hulme.

Having started his playing career at St Bede's RC Junior School, David moved to St Joseph's RC Comprehensive in Widnes (where he played Centre for their RU team ie 13 or 14) whilst continuing playing Amateur Rugby League for Halton Hornets in a set up that also produced future Widnes team mates Barry Dowd and Andy Currier.

His first taste of the "limelight" was in the Widnes Under-11 team that won the "Curtain raiser" to the 1975 Challenge Cup Final, when Widnes RLFC played Warrington RLFC and won the "Main Event" 14-7

David Hulme won caps for Great Britain while at Widnes in 1988 against Papua New Guinea, Australia (3 matches), and New Zealand, and in 1989 against New Zealand (3 matches).[1]

During the 1989–90 Rugby Football League season, he played for defending champions Widnes at scrum half in their 1989 World Club Challenge victory against the visiting Canberra Raiders.

David Hulme's Testimonial match at Widnes took place in 1991.
