Ed Barnes (born 14 January 1981 in Banbury) is an English rugby union footballer, who plays fly-half for Bristol Rugby.

Barnes started his playing career at Bath before moving to Bedford. He was traded from Plymouth Albion to Bristol Rugby for the 2007-8 season.[1]

Barnes' first game in the Guinness Premiership was made as a replacement against London Wasps where he cleared a penalty to result in a draw. He then made the starting team when playing Wasps for the second time.

In January, 2009 Barnes was selected for the England Saxons team to face Portugal.[2]

In early October 2009, Paul Hull announced that Barnes would be out of action for the next six months. Barnes had ruptured his Achilles in Bristol's final game of the 2008/9 season against Leicester. He worked hard over the summer of 2009 to get fit again, only to re-rupture it in the final few weeks of rehabilitation.[3]
