Thomas Bosc (born 5 August 1983 in Perpignan, Languedoc-Roussillon, France) is a French professional rugby league footballer for the Catalan Dragons of Super League. He was the club's top points scorer in the 2007 season and has represented his country on several occasions.

After coming through the ranks at French Elite Championship side Union Treiziste Catalane (the senior squad of which was later to form the Catalan Dragons) he was part of the 2006 squad for the Perpignan-based outfit's first season in Super League. He spent most of 2006 as a fringe player, occasionally called upon to play at full-back. In 2007, with the arrival of Clint Greenshields, he was switched to the wing and enjoyed a successful campaign, albeit one curtailed by injury. With the retirement of Stacey Jones, Bosc was handed the opportunity to fill his considerable gap in the halves for the 2008 season. He was a revelation in the role and went on to become a key player for the team, taking over the playmaking and goal-kicking responsibilities and setting a number of points-scoring records including becoming the first player to reach 1,000 points for the club.

He was named in the France training squad[2] and ultimately to the final France squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup.[3]

Bosc continued to represent France in the 2009 Four Nations and the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

Bosc has signed to play for St.Helens on a 2 year deal. Although Bosc was off contract in 2013, Lance Hohaia has agreed to move to Catalans for the last two years of his four year contract with St.Helens.
