Leroy Rivett (born 17 December 1976) is an English rugby league player who currently plays for the English National League Two side, Rochdale Hornets as a winger.

Born in Leicester, England,[1] his amateur career began for the Leeds side Pendas Panthers for the under-eleven age-group, but he soon moved to play for East Leeds, where he joined numerous other future professionals in a very strong junior team. As this team grew older, it won numerous trophies, most notably the British Amateur Rugby League Association National Youth League and National Youth Cup double in 1995. In September 1995, he joined Leeds Rhinos.

Rivett rose to prominence towards the end of the season, helping Leeds reach the 1998 Super League Grand Final by scoring two tries in the final eliminator of the Super League play-offs against St Helens.[2] He played on the wing for the final in the 10–4 defeat to Wigan Warriors.

Rivett is perhaps best known for his performance for Leeds Rhinos in the Rugby League Challenge Cup final at Wembley Stadium in 1999 when he grabbed four tries against London Broncos and walked away with the Lance Todd Trophy as man of the match.[3]
