Robert 'Bob' Hiller (born 14 October 1942) is a former England international rugby union player.

Hiller played at fullback. He made his England debut against Wales at Twickenham on 20 January 1968 and won the last of his 19 caps against Ireland at Twickenham on 12 February 1972. He captained England in seven internationals and scored 138 points, an England record at the time of his retirement which has subsequently been beaten.

He made two tours with the British and Irish Lions - to South Africa in 1968 and to New Zealand in 1971 although he played in no international matches for the Lions. He played club rugby for Harlequin F.C..

In 1966, before he began his international rugby career, Hiller played eight first-class cricket matches for the Oxford University Cricket Club. He took 17 wickets, at an average of 29.05.

He later taught at Bec Grammar School in Tooting, London, where he had been a pupil. He has since taught mathematics at King's College School, Wimbledon.
