Martin Roberts (born 6 June 1986) is a Wales international rugby union footballer who currently plays at scrum-half for Bath Rugby in the English Premiership.

After playing in a half-back combination with James Hook at Neath College, Roberts and Hook played together at Neath RFC and then the Ospreys. Roberts signed for the Scarlets from the Ospreys on 27 March 2008, after the departure of Dwayne Peel to Sale Sharks, signing a two-year contract with the Llanelli region, where he would compete with Sililo Martens, Lee Williams and Gavin Cattle for the number 9 jersey.

Roberts has represented Wales internationally at every level from schools through to full international. In 2007, Roberts was selected for the Wales Sevens team.

Roberts was selected for the Wales senior squad for the Autumn international series in October 2008, playing his first game on 14 November against Canada.

On 18 January 2010, he was named in the 35-man Wales squad for the 2010 Six Nations tournament.[1]

On 18 March 2011, it was announced that Roberts would join Northampton Saints at the end of the 2010–11 season. Roberts parted company with Northampton Saints at the end of the 2012-2013 season and joined Bath Rugby, after the Saints signed scrum-half Kahn Fotuali'i from Roberts' former team, the Ospreys.
