Jim Morgan (died 19 October 2005 in Gold Coast, Queensland[1]) was an Australian rugby league footballer of the 1960s and 70s. He played at prop forward in the New South Wales Rugby Football League premiership for the South Sydney Rabbitohs and later the Eastern Suburbs Roosters, and also represented Australia.

Hailing from Maitland, Morgan first came to prominence in 1964 when playing for a representative Newcastle side that defeated premiers St. George on their way to winning that year's State Cup.[2] The following year he was signed with South Sydney to play in the Sydney Premiership. In his first season with the Rabbitohs, he played in their Grand Final loss to St. George.
