The 1892 Home Nations Championship was the tenth series of the rugby union Home Nations Championship. Six matches were played between 2 January and 5 March. It was contested by England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

England took the 1892 Championship and the Triple Crown, their fifth Championship and third Triple Crown. Furthermore the English team failed to concede a single point, the only time this has occurred during the Championship's history.

The points system was changed yet again, with a try being upgraded from one to two points, while a goal conversion was increased from two to three points.
