Michael Kerr (born 23 April 1974) is a German international rugby union player, playing for the RG Heidelberg in the Rugby-Bundesliga and the German national rugby union team. He is originally from New Zealand and qualified to play for Germany after five years of residence in the country.[1][2]

He made his last game for Germany against a Welsh Districts XV on 24 February 2007. He has also played for Germany's rugby league team, being threatened with a ban by the German rugby union coach if he did so.[3]

Kerr, the nephew of the late Bruce Kerr, a legendary player and coach of SC Neuenheim also played for this club, but missed the 2008-09 season because of a back injury. For the 2009-10 season, he moved to the Heidelberger TV, a team just relegated from the 2nd Rugby-Bundesliga, to help the club return to the second division.[4]
