George Mason (d 1996) was a rugby league football player, and later coach, for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs club.

A Canterbury local junior, Mason played three seasons for Western Suburbs Magpies between 1927-1929. He then spent a number of years captain-coaching in rural N.S.W. at Barmedman and at Central Newcastle before returning to Sydney. His final year as a player was 1936 at the relatively new Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs. He coached the side the following year, prior to Jim Craig.
