Chris Cusiter, born June 13, 1982, in Aberdeen, Scotland, is a Scottish rugby union player who plays at scrum-half, and is the current joint captain of Scotland.

Cusiter made his first start for Scotland in the 2004 Six Nations match against Wales. Cusiter first shot to international prominence in the 2004 Autumn Internationals, where he made four length-of-the-field breaks in one match versus Australia, a match which Scotland lost 17–31. His crisp passing, unpredictability from behind rucks and mauls, tenacity in defence, and ability to slow up opposition ball by tackling the Number 8 and opposing scrum-half, has made him one of the best in the world in his position.

Cusiter played for the British and Irish Lions in their 2005 tour of New Zealand. Originally from Aberdeen, where he attended Robert Gordon’s College, he now plays for Glasgow Warriors. Cusiter left the Border Reivers at the end of the 2006–07 season.

Cusiter studied law at Edinburgh University.
