Ross G Smith (born 8 September 1942) is a former Australian rules footballer in the VFL.

Smith played with St Kilda as a courageous rover. He won the Brownlow medal in 1967 and captained Victoria at the 1972 Perth Carnival. He once broke his arm smothering a ball in the late sixties and recovered to captain the Saints in the early seventies.

After retiring he coached Subiaco, Western Australia to a premiership in 1972. He also coached his former club St Kilda for a single season (1977), leading them only three wins and to their first wooden spoon in 22 years.

He was inducted to the Saints inaugural Hall of Fame in 2003. In addition he was chosen as first rover in St Kilda's Team of the Century.
