Scott Fuglistaller (born 16 April 1987) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer. He plays for, and captains, the Melbourne Rebels in Super Rugby and the Melbourne Rising in the National Rugby Championship. His regular playing position is openside flanker.
He played first XV rugby for Francis Douglas Memorial College in New Plymouth, and club rugby in Wellington.
In New Zealand, Fuglistaller represented the Highlanders and made his debut in 2012.
In 2011 and 2012, Fuglistaller did not play. Like many, he viewed the Rebels defence as lacking. However, in 2013 he was among the squad's fit young recruits expected to bring a hard edge to the Rebels defence and attack.
In the opening round of the 2013 Super Rugby season, Fuglistaller made his Rebels debut against the Western Force, and played for 64 minutes before being replaced by Saffy. He was named to play against the ACT Brumbies the following week, and expected to face strong competition from Wallabies flanker David Pocock.
In 2014, despite competition for the open side flanker position from Reid and Australian Sevens rep Sean McMahon the Rebels extended Fuglistaller's contract through until the end of the 2016 Super Rugby season.
On 6 February 2015 Fuglistaller was appointed co-captain of the Rebels alongside incumbent captain Scott Higginbotham.
On 7 August 2015, Fuglistaller snd his Rebels teammate Colby Fainga'a were appointed co-captains of the Melbourne Rising for the 2015 National Rugby Championship season.
